My parents are divorced. They got divorced when I was 3. Now Im 11, and sorta over it although I dont really have a father figure in my life. Mum has a boyfriend, dad has a wife and they're both living very happy lives now. So Im not sad anymore.
I live with my mum and see my dad every month or two. I do start missing him sometimes, but he's not really a true friend of mine. We've got nothing to talk about at all. All I do when I go to his house is play board games with him for like 15 mins, then he has to go and I just watch Foxtel [i think thats called Cable in America] all day. Its boring.
I still remember the day that mum and him broke up, there was fighting and yelling everywhere. My cat got scared and ran outside and I ran out crying. My brother was playing video games, until my dad came into his room. This is what dad told my brother ''Come on son, lets go and leave mum to cry''. I still cant forgive him for that, and most likely never will.
And, before they got divorced, my grandma and grandpa were gonna come and live here in Australia, a better country [They live in Russia at the moment]. But, as soon as mum and dad got divorced, the opportunity went BAM. The government started thinking that my mum would abandon them and then everything would go bad. I also cant forgive my dad for doing that.
So, Ive been through it. Hard, but you get over it.
