TimWake993 Posted November 27, 2011 Report Share Posted November 27, 2011 Firstly, I'd like to ask if you know any good sites where i can get answers on this kind of problem, to please tell me about them. Its not that i don't trust the advice I'm receiving here, but I'd like to have as many answers/advice as possible. Thanks.My parents had a very major fight this morning. They argue from time to time, but its mostly minor stuff and they work it out in a few days. The last time they really considered divorce was 6 years ago, and thankfully they worked through that. This time around though my mom packed her briefcase, took my 2-year old brother with her and went to stay with friends for a few days, leaving me here with my dad and grandmother.A few hours ago i got a phone call from her, and she explained to me her side of the story. She said she wants to stay with my dad, but she is tired of his attitude. He is constantly in a bad mood, he never has any meaningful talks with her. He screams quite a lot on everyone, even on my baby brother, he mistreats the dog, and he is very rude quite a lot of the time. I don't feel like he is a bad person, he would never think about hurting one of us. I don't really know what's wrong with him, maybe he's just like this because life never really worked out the way he wanted it to for him, maybe its some mental condition such as anger issues, i really got no clue.I spoke to my dad and he obviously had his own side of the story. He told me he's mad with my mom because she always put her career in front of family. She comes back from work late, and rarely does much around the house (my dad does all the cooking, cleaning, etc.) Because of this he's never had the opportunity to build his own career, because my mom always bossed him around and made him do all the housework and a big portion of the parenting instead of letting him focus on his work.My mom asked me to have a serious talk with my dad before she comes back, to try and maybe work this out instead of divorcing. But I'm at a complete loss as to how to approach this. Its obviously not my job but they'll never for the life of them go to a marriage counselor, so I feel like I'm the only one who can save them from divorce.Thanks.
