I was only a little kid back then, so I can't entirely remember. But I was actually pretty relieved, because I didn't like to see them fighting all the time
Even as a child it was obvious to me that they were happier appart.

well my parents were always fighting for as long as I could remember so honestly it was a relief that they divorced. My first memory of them fighting was scary, I was hiding under the dining table while they screamed at each other and my mom was hurling cuss words at him...not something a 3-4 year old should be hearing. My mom was the abusive person in that relationship.
I was 16 at the time and witnessed my parents fighting all the time, so it was definitely no shocker. I feel like it didn't really hit me though until I saw my father for the first time, a few years after the divorce. It is what it is. My mom was the main parent of the household anyway and who I felt the closest to. But ideally, it would be nice to have your parents together or at least active in their children's lives. My dad never was and probably will never truly be. And I think for a son, especially, he needs a father figure in his life for sure.
I was very young, i only got sad after they got divorced, because i don't remember them fighting or the 'proces' itself. I cried everytime I had to leave my dad for a whole week, but that stopped when became 10 or 11. I prefer it like this, i can't even imagine them being together.
