mind you only two are married so far.

It would be just so heartbreaking!

For me, it would totally depend on the circumstances.

If two people marry then realise they weren't meant for each other and divorce amicably I can't see where the heartbreak would be in that.

If it gets messy, especially if kids are used as ammunition, then it is very sad.

A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

I would rather see them divorced than be in a unhappy marriage for the rest of their lives.

You would cope. You would be there for them.

It’s easy to stay with the crowd, it takes courage to stand alone.

Look on the positive side.
They would more than likely meet someone else and have a lasting, loving relationship.

of course it would be disappointing - a marriage starts with such hope and expectation.

but what would matter would be my child (and their partner's) happiness and what is best for their life - not what I want.

Maybe people who dont think marriage is a conspiracy to enslave women might think a marriage failing has more significance than others believe. :dry: .

I would be more upset if my child or my grandchildren were locked into a life of misery and constant argument.

If a couple cannot resolve their differences and cannot be happy together, I think it’s best for them and their kids if they part company.

Coincidentally, I have just been discussing this topic this evening with an old friend.
She has been telling me that her son and his wife have finally split up, after years of conflict and argument.
She is rather relieved that they have made that decision at last because she has been worrying about the effect on her two young grandsons when their parents are constantly rowing.
