Strong enough for her, but chemically imbalanced for him.

Here’s a though.  Divorce.  I never really thought much about it until last night as i was waiting for Adrienne to hurl…  A guy and a girl fall in love.  They think they are perfect for each other, and they marry and have kids.  Somewhere along the way, the realize they were wrong.  That either, one, or both have changed, that they were immature at the start, something happens, that makes them separate.  Jump through the legal hoops, yada yada yada, everything is hunky dorry right?  Wrong.

The kids.  They are made from, and only from, parts of the parents.  obviously it isn’t an 50/50 ratio, but a kid is made up of both.  Now when the parents split, what sort of outlook to the future does that give the child?  “Mommy and Daddy can’t live together anymore, but that doesn’t involve you, you’ll be fine.”  Think of the inner struggles a child can go through.  It was easy for the parents to just give up, to split, but what about the kid?  they can’t just leave parts of themselves.  The child is stuck as this chemical makeup, that has been proven to be volatile, or at least unstable.  But instead of separate identities, it is all in one cornucopia we like to call a person.  What did that child do to deserve this constant internal conflict? 

Moral of the story:  Till death do you part.  -or- Stay together for the kids.
