The honeymoon is long over. Dad says it’s now whiskey and marriage on the rocks. Mom says she’s going to take him to the cleaners.


Why are they getting divorced and why now that you’re an adult child? Your parents are divorcing or maybe they have divorced already. Everyone is focused on them, but you’re suffering too. Adult children have a really tough time when their parents split up – just as tough, if not tougher, than young children. In this book several adult children of divorce (18 years and older) share their advice, first-hand experience, confusion, uncertainty, anger and sadness that begin the moment when Mom and Dad say: It’s over.

The bad news? The divorce will always be a wound. The good news? You can learn how to handle it better and in time it could just become a scar. In the words of a respondent, Gretha (26): “Time makes all wounds bearable.”
