Watching home videos from before the divorce is heartbreaking.

Posted on Thursday, March 02, 2017

My dad divorced my mom after 26 years and eight kids. He subsequently married three more times. I was out of college when my parents divorced and so was least affected. I've heard that divorce is the suicide of the family. I have to agree.  I'm 50 and not married. I'm a marginal Catholic. My youngest sister became a Marxist in college. She has two kids from different men and will likely continue this trend. She was four at the time of my parent's divorce. My youngest brother was nine. He still lives rent free with my mom and verbally abuses her. My sister says he is a heroin addict. These two were so beautiful and innocent before. Watching home videos of them before the divorce is heartbreaking.
