explaining.... D.I. V. O. R.C. E.
There is a divorce going on in our midst, and no it is not us. (I will not mention specific names, etc)...I have not blogged on it, out of respect for those in this particular circumstance. However, I have been trying to explain it to The Collective.
SR, was quite cut and dried over the thing. When I tried to explain it to them, PN asked "what is a divorce?" I wasn't sure how to answer that....
SR answered it for me, by saying "It is when people become unmarried."
That seemed well enough to explain what is going on. However, PN is now concerned about the collateral damage involved, as this couple has a child, and PN is concerned about what will happen to the child. We all are....
I did not know how to explain that either.
SR, explained it as good as I could, and told her, it happens quite a bit, and kids are ok. People still love them etc......
I am not going to judge here, some people should not marry each other I guess. And sometimes loving each other is not enough. This couple did struggle with this decision, and tried to make a go of it for the child. But frankly, it just was not working for them.
