Mom and Dad are arguing. Fighting maybe, we are not sure. The kids are nervous. What happens next we wonder, will there be a divorce, who will we go with, will dad take the house??
Mom has done some stuff that dad is really pissed about. Seems like it’s not really bad stuff and I can’t tell if he’s just mad because she went against his wishes, if it’s a power trip or…he’s just tired of her. Part of his complaint is that he wants her to treat one of our brothers like he doesn’t exist. The other is that she’s spent too much time helping our ne’er do well brother.
Oh, and uh… Dad has been fooling around a bit. He tried to keep it quiet, but you know once someone makes a complaint, it hits the news, and then it’s all out there.We are so embarrassed, but he doesn’t seem to care. (well, he cares he got caught..you know) We wonder if they can reconcile. If there is still enough love left.
This kind of stuff is hard for the kids. We are not responsible for them … we support mom, but we have always loved dad too.
Who gets the property? Who gets the kids? Or, do we just wander off by ourselves.
Most of America has been touched by divorce. Most of you can at least understand what I’m saying.
You now understand what it feels like to be a catholic these days.
