My son told me some months ago that he & his wife are getting a divorce. It is now past the stage where they might change their minds & I am devastated. I love my DS & DIL & they have 3 small children who are the most adorable & well- adjusted children. There is little animosity between them now- I'm sure there has been- & they are doing it all as 'nicely' as possible.
I thought they were the perfect couple & it has hit me really hard. I don't live close to them but I can get there in under an hour & have always gone over once a week to see the children & they stay with us at weekends sometimes so I have a good relationship with them.
I would really welcome any comments from those of you who have been through this. I really feel as if all I had thought was right with the world has crashed down. I understand divorce- I was divorced & so were my parents but when the children concerned were a lot older- I was 16. I know how children suffer & I cannot bear my own grandchildren to be hurt.
How did other Grans cope with this?
