Sometimes, marriages just don’t work out.
It isn’t really anyone’s fault.
Marriage isn’t easy.
It is hard for two people to stay together for a lifetime.
Sometimes, people change as they get older, and they move on.
Some people have perfectly good marriages, and they stay together for their entire lives.
Divorce doesn’t happen because the parents don’t love the children anymore.
A lot of children feel that it is their fault, but it isn’t their fault at all.
Children neither cause the divorce, nor can they prevent it.
It is up to the parents.
Divorce isn’t the end of the world.
Children can still see both parents and stay with them.
Life goes on.
Sometimes children can get new stepmothers or stepfathers.
That can be a good thing.
You just have to be understanding, and know that your parents still love you.
Life doesn’t always go the way that we planned it, but it has its twists and turns.
Life is an adventure.
If your parents get a divorce, just be understanding.
Know that they love you and that this is a hard time for them.
It is a hard time for you too, but these things have a way of working themselves out in the end.
