My Parents Divorced And Made Me Choose

    This is Ruth. Her story is kind of sad, because it's about how her parents recently got divorced. Ruth’s parents were married for 20 years, and at least in her eyes they’d always seemed like the ideal couple. It’s true that they were pretty different, but she thought it was that classic case when two people complete each other just like two pieces of a puzzle. Her dad is a big, quiet man, always ready to give a kind smile to anyone. Her mom is the exact opposite - a firework of a person. She’s always talking or doing something, laughing noisily and having arguments with people. So, what did they have in common? RUTH. She was an only child and they both adored her.
    Some time after her 15th birthday, Ruth’s parents said they needed to talk to her. She hated that “We need to talk” stuff, and straight away felt pretty nervous. Her bad feeling was correct, as she soon heard that phrase every child dreads: “We decided that we need to divorce. You’re grown up and we hope you understand us.” Well, she acted very considerately, and didn’t ask a thing about what had happened. But one thing bothered her above all. How come she’d never notices they weren’t getting along anymore?
    All of a sudden their life became a real hell. They started the divorce process like two civilized people, and kept it up like that when dividing their assets...until it came to the most precious thing - their daughter. Both her mom and dad wanted her to live with them, and was determined to stand their ground. “Mom? Dad? I’m a person, not a thing! Maybe you could ask me what I want?” Ruth thought. Now Ruth had always known she would need to grow up one day, but didn’t expect that it would have to happen so soon.
    The three of them were still living together, but it was no longer their nice cozy home anymore. Ruth noticed one thing in particular that was worrying her a lot. Her mom was trying to win her affection in any way possible. She started buying her expensive stuff and took her out to spas and restaurants, and generally started acting more like her best friend than her mother. It was nice, but didn’t give her a good feeling. The worst thing was that when they were alone she always tried to convince Ruth that her father was a weak person or that he was too busy to give her attention, and plenty of other not very nice things. Whereas her dad was acting like he’d already lost - he was there always looking sad, eating his dinners all alone and staring at her like a kicked dog.
    Right before the court date, Ruth accidentally overheard something super-painful. Her mom and dad were having a private conversation, and she heard her mother say: “If you claim that you can’t take care of Ruth, I’ll let you see her freely anytime you want; otherwise I’ll accuse you of being violent and will do everything I can to limit your time with her. Do as I say, because you know that she'll choose me anyway!” Ruth felt like she’d been struck by lightning. Her eyes were opened at once to just how manipulative her mom was. And this blackmail was horrible! She heard her dad give in to her mom just so he would have the opportunity to see her. She was overwhelmed, and at that moment made her decision. The next day, to everyone’s shock, she said that she wanted to live with her dad. Her mom looked like she’d been slapped in the face, and her dad burst into tears right there in front of everyone.
    Afterwards, Ruth stayed on to live with her dad, and once her mom had left she felt bitter inside. With their “friendship” over, she called Ruth from time to time just to tell her what an ungrateful traitor she was. Ruth didn’t know how to answer her. Ruth was convinced that she had done nothing wrong, though. Whereas her dad was now totally happy, always caring, always asking for her opinion and giving her nice treats. She now had lots of freedom, which was really handy for a 15-year-old girl.
    Ruth wanted to go overnight to a music festival, and her dad on this occasion stood firm and said that he wouldn’t let her go because she was too young. She cried and yelled but he said it wasn’t up for negotiation. Desperate to go, she suddenly shouted at him: “You know what? If you don’t let me go, I’ll call mom and ask her to let me live with her!” That kicked dog expression appeared once more on her dad's face; he just said “Ok. Do whatever you like,” and left the room in silence. Ruth stood there unable to believe how much she’d just screwed up. She felt so ashamed!
    At that moment, she realised how much she had inherited her mother’s personality traits. She had that same trait of being a shameless manipulator that Ruth detested her for. But soon she also realised that she could understand her mother a little better now: she had manipulated Ruth and blackmailed her dad because she had been desperate, and she did it for something way more serious than her daughter’s petty teenage whims.

    A few months later I over heard my mum and dad talking on the phone my mum said she was sick and only had a few more weeks to live I ran to my bed room and cried my dad walked into my room acting happy like he always does and found me crying in the corner I told him that I over heard him and mum on the phone he said that he had arranged a plane for me to go see my mum
    I walked into her hospital room to see hooked up to all these machines and medicines we had only been staying in London for a few days when mums health started deterating quickly i lay by her side when it happened I heard her machine flatline and doctors and nurses ran in to help her but it was to late she was gone

    This story is just like my life, my mother was a demon and my dad was a angel. But I couldn’t choose who I can go where, I had to be with my mom and I loved my father more than my mother. I was told that my mother is in pain but I do love her but love my father more because he cared for me and my siblings than money -Please like if your story is just like me!

    In my story I was only 8 and my dad had cheated on my mom I didn’t understand I was confused it was blurry I ran to my room and tried to ignore the fighting but then when I opened my bedroom door my dad was packing I didn’t know what was happening my heart was breaking but my mom was pregnant at the time with my little sister (she was ok) but it hurt her for weeks and weeks I suddenly grown fury and anger at my dad I never wanted to be with him for what he did and I always declined his calls but then I had to go one weekend with my dad and one with my mom I had a new stepmother and she was okay a few years later she gave birth to my half-brother I love him very much and my sister was born throughout those years as well but then my dad bought a store and worked another job just so he could pay Chile support but he couldn’t and I got mad he never gave me and my sister attention because he was always “working” but then I noticed that my stepmom was being selfish and asking my dad for money that was supposed to be mine to buy food for us but she blackmailed him and I was sad I started noticing that all these years I was selfish not noticing the pain my parents were going through to take care of me and my little sister it hurt me I started answering his calls spending more time with my parents instead of asking them for stuff and being mad at them but I noticed that my sister and brother were picking on to the selfishness I had even though they are little I am still trying to help them not be like me not going through the pain the rudeness and the selfishness and I am still working with them and trying to build a nicer relationship to n my family like trying to tape something back together there will always be a scar but I know I love my mom and my dad and I always will and I’m trying to stay positive and it’s working all I have to do is believe that we *can* do it and we *can* be better then we were before 🤗💓

    I'm concerned that her mother called her names for doing what was best for herself, and she ended up saying she understood her. That's great you understand why she does the things she does, but does that mean you shouldn't protect yourself from her still?

    Almost exactly my story.. just that my Mom isn't that rude to my Dad.
    My parents has been divorced now for over 2 years and still live with me and my 2 brothers in one house and it's SO DAMN stressful..

    My parents broke up (I say that because my parents never got married due to financial issues) when I was 2 years old. Im with my mom mondays - Fridays, while with my dad Friday nights - Monday Mornings. I'm currently used to this. Although it does suck.. my dad is a very sweet and.. "anti-social?" Person.. while my mom is very strong to her beliefs and has pretty bad anger issues. A lot of times in my life I have been asked the question of "whom do I want to live with?" Or "You will have to choose which parent you want to live with one day" and I really don't like to think about that.. if I were to be asked who I love more.. I wouldn't answer, but in my heart I believe that I love my dad more. Due to the fact that I share a lot of traits with him. Although I do love my mom very much.. and to think of having to choose one parent is truly heart breaking. My mom has a tendency though.. of threatening me that "if I don't do THIS or whatnot.. that she will have it arranged that I live with my dad 24/7" No matter how much I love him.. being told that does hurt in a weird way.

    [B]Not sure why I typed this super long story.. highly doubt anyone will read it to the end.. but thanks if ya did xD

    The video got to me it is just that I can not find a way to accept my mom's apology if she would ever apologize she abused me and did everything to hurt me, my biological dad never talked to me any more and my step dad I'd in jail but I love him more than anything he helps me get through it he calls every day but I still have to live through the struggle of living with a step family and that my biological parents and family do not love me anymore but I think that I am happy where I am and yes people still ask why I have a different last name and i am ok talking about it soon I am going to change my last name from Carr to Agapie I can't wait but it will take a little longer because it is not my birth parents that are changing it for me. I hope that this will inspire you to stay strong and that you are not alone we will stay strong ang get through life not the easy way but the hard way. And we will survive with the strongest hearts in the world. My name is Jordan A. Carr and I am going to make it through the struggle of living with the truth. This is all because of a drug called heroin. This can kill you so please never do it and protect your family so you never have to go through this or put anybody through this. Love you all and stay safe- Jordan A. Carr❤.

    When my parents separated, my dad tried to ‘parentally alienate’ my mom from me... only after my mom threatened to take me and my sister away from him, he stopped. It screwed over my emotions (which is a bitch for my drama class). I’m now in therapy for it, and trying to strengthen my relationship with my dad while also trying to see my mom as who she is, not who my dad said she was.

    Don’t worry I understand what your going through because I’ve been through the same thing but I didn’t have a choice whether to be with my Mum or Dad so I ended up being with my mother and I didn’t have much of a relationship with my dad until I realised about the relationship and the similarities between me and my dad so that also gave me a better relationship with my dad.
