Back then, divorce was a taboo. Families rarely talked about marital disputes that ended marriages and left children broken too. Fast-forward today, divorce is quite common and people are no longer embarrassed to admit to the world that they made a mistake and their marriage is over. For many of these bickering couples, it is better to be lonesome and single once more than being trapped in a loveless and toxic relationship. It’s bad for the kids too to see their parents quarrel all the time. If you failed to see it from that angle.
If there is anything good that comes out of this situation, it’s of mothers and fathers banding together for the sake of their kids. The term “platonic parents” became a thing and in a way, children still have both their parents to love and care for them minus the negative energy that always follows before when they were still constantly fighting one another.
