Not divorced officially, for some legal backlash will ensue according to my brother; he's really into legal stuff, he knows these things.

Anyway, I cannot tell if I'm tired, in shock, or anything else. I did hate my father bu right now I can't talk about it. These days I barely get to get online so I will reply more productively in a few days/weeks, promise.

Until then, if I ever get overly emotional, please excuse me.

I was happy when my dad left my mom i mean all he would do all day is sit on his ass and cuss me out and then he would get all his dumbassed kids ( he was married before and had like 7 kids) to steal all MY stuff while i was at school.
Whew ok ill stop now.

but what im saying is you would be better off if you just put all that stuff about you father in the past and live the rest of your life.

Were they Siamese’s twins? Big grin

Just kidding.

Parents splitting up is not always a bad thing.

This may sound hard, but if I were you, I would be happy. I went through the same thing. I got a say as to who's house I went to at what time (dad or moms), nobody is paying support since they are both very good money wise. They fought over the dumbest things, so stupid. My mom wanted to donate less to charity, my father wanted to take more wild trips (gosh I love those), more stuff that I can't even remember ...yet it was those little things that made them so different. They were two different people.
I am happy now that they are divorced. It is so much easier on my family. My parents get along great now whenever they see eachother, both are re-married, both love me.
It may be tough now, but in the long run, it works out awesome.
When I go home from school (now I go to a private boarding school, my choice) I make the 300 mile trip from Syracuse (mom) to New York city (dad) just about evey week or so.
I hope this helped some. Email me if you have any questions or need some help in any way. I will try my best.

That's a bummer, Lephron. I can't say that I know what you're going through, as I've been lucky in that regard.

All I guess you can do is just take it a day at a time. Hopefully, you get along with both your folks, and if that's the case, just remember they care about you. Words are lame, for sure, but hang in there.

It's often for the best. I know that I am infinitely more happy. My parents are infinitely more happy. Life is infinitely better since they split up 5 years ago. These things happen for a reason, and while there are tough times (like the holidays when it tears you up to think of one of your parents to be all alone on Christmas), but you work through them and you become stronger for it.

Good luck, man.

For some akward reason I feel out of place, like I'm not part of the family anymore, like I'm being push out.

I don't know what to say, I feel alienated in my own home, and I kept drawing a blank every time I wanted to respond here except this time, no wait, yeah it happened again.

I know I should talk about this more, otherwise if I keep it in it'll pop unnaturally someday.

My father keeps coming over to our new place, delivering stuff we probably forgot to take when we moved out, I donno.

I can't offer much experiential advise, but I can wish the best for you.

Hang in there!

It hurts. It stinks. It's not fair.
We all have to live through being hurt -- to different degrees, at different times, in different ways -- but we all get hurt. If you work your way through the hurt, you'll be a better man for it. So, let it out. Tell us or someone you love (or hate) how you feel. Process your feelings and learn from them. Seek help if you can't do it by just talking to us or your mom or someone else. If you can't talk to your father, write him a letter and tell him how you feel (you can get it off your chest and then if you still can't tell him, you can always throw the letter away.) From experience, he will respect you more for telling him how you feel than from just ignoring him, even if you have only bad news for him. Most of all, don't let someone else's problem make you a worse person. Finally, you can email me at yahoo.com if you can't find anyone else to talk to.

Best of luck.
Mr. Durst

What a pity for you Lehpron... Well, one thing good that came out of all this is that I can bang your mom without having to worry about your pops catching us now.

I am at the point now where I can watch Divorce Court and laugh as though I were watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

And the more emotional anguish that one or more of the spouses (especially the wife) suffers, the happier I am.

I guess I've just been getting inched slowly yet ever so constantly to the edge. Well, this morning, I was finally pushed.

I am now an official, proud androgynous mysogynist.
