I wish they would stop. They do this all the time...I hope they are okay.
The next day Charlie’s parents divorced.
Your mom and I haven’t been really getting along with each other lately, and…um...
We got divorced.
We will give you time to choose which one of us to live with, just tell us when you are ready.
We just weren’t happy together. We fought together a lot.
Charlie sits a long time in his room thinking about all the possibilities and the consequences.
Visiting both would be very hard. My mom and dad will live very far from each other, so switching frequently would waste money and time. If I stay with my dad…I won’t be able to see mom, but if I stay with my mom, then I won’t be able to see my dad. I could visit on the weekends when we have time so we wouldn’t have to move all the time and I can still see both my parents. Mom is also still living in this house so I can still go to the same school and stay with my friends.
