Divorce Has Been Hard on the Kids

The divorce between my ex-wife and I has been hard, but it has been the hardest on our children. They didn’t expect that their parents would ever split up, and they’ve tried to talk us into staying together, but we just couldn’t do it. I had to hire an Austin child custody attorney because my ex-wife and I had to work out who would be able to keep the kids during what days of the month. I know the kid don’t want things to be the way they are, but sharing custody with my ex-wife was the only way that the kids would be able to see both parents.

My parents divorced when I was just a kid, so I know just how my kids feel. I didn’t like it, and I had to go between spending time with my father and mother on different days. Sometimes I felt as if it was my fault that my parents got divorced, even though they told me that it wasn’t. I looked at the other kids that had parents that were happily married and still living together, and I wished that I had the same thing with my parents again. They never got back together and eventually they remarried with new partners, making things even more complicated.

Even though things didn’t work out between my ex-wife and I, I still want to make sure that my kids don’t feel the same way that I did during my parents divorce. I also want to make sure that they don’t end up in the same kind of situation when they get older. It may be hard for them to find a person that they can be with for a long time, and I want them to take some time to think about whether they can see themselves married to a person.
