No. They’re friends, but they split up like… a year after I was born.


TheMooonster06

Kinda like except they split when I was around 5 and they are friendly to each other when they meat but talk shit about one another behind their backs to me


ask_your_sister

My parents are also the same except they split up When I was like 12 and when my dad does it the things he says are actually true.


WaitArtistic8821

ayy twinsies. my mom mainly gives backhanded compliments behind his back and she gives them to me in person sooo yay!


Poptartz746

All to familiar


fermentedmillk

that’s kewl


insfireman

It's amazing that they're still friends, split ups happen but that doesn't mean you have the right to ruin your child's life :)


cutestonerbf

i mean apparently but idk how my dad could love my mom ig he has a thing for toxic women


starry_dino_nights

Same with my dad


nicolasbourbaki-

Same homie


Elasirio

need i even say it


nicolasbourbaki-

Thou indeed needest not sayeth it


spicyfood333

Damn bro you allright?


nicolasbourbaki-

Not really. But hey, what am I gonna do about it right?


spicyfood333

Idk, but if I was in your shoes I'd probably talk to them about it


nicolasbourbaki-

Believe me I've tried. My mom doesn't care about anyone but herself, and my dad's just trying to keep her from winding up dead in a ditch somewhere.


spicyfood333

Is your mom an alcoholic or drug addict by any chance?


nicolasbourbaki-

Ding ding! Give the man a brand new car!!


spicyfood333

Does any of your extended family members know about this?


fermentedmillk

lmaoo


Ascendant_103

Same here. My dads a complete clown (in a good way) and my mom is one of the strictest people I know. I guess it’s true that opposites attract


cutestonerbf

my dads a king but my mom is overly strict and mentally abusive


Ascendant_103

Oh I’m sorry to hear that my mom isn’t mentally abusive but she is definitely cold most of the time. My DMs are open if you want someone to talk to :)


ReliefSpecial

Same my [email protected] are not happy mainly my [email protected] he really dislikes my m0th3r alot, he tried to divorce her multiple times but he stopped trying since he knew he would lose the house to her so now he verbally degrades her and she now verbally hurts me :')


cutestonerbf

from what i see my mom treats my dad fine which i’m very fortunate for and i’m sorry that your mom goes through that. but my moms like that towards me. she only cares about me and my brothers if she benefits from it.


LIMIT_73

*Everyone related to that*


ty2cool476

yeah. they sleep in separate beds for medical reasons which people think means they hate eachother but…i have a bedroom on the same floor and trust me ….


flyingokapis

To be fair I imagine quite a lot of couples wish they had the balls to sleep in seperate beds, like I'd 100% prefer bunk beds with my wife but the stigma is like you said 'hate eachother', having your own space to sleep is important. Wtf, just realised what sub I'm in and will see myself out!


Accomplished-Ad-9996

I feel like sharing a bed with me would be hell. It takes me forever to fall asleep and I move around almost constantly because I'll find a comfy spot and then a minute later it isn't comfy anymore. Plus I get out of bed several times a night, and I'll get really cold so I pile on the blankets then I get hot so I take them off.


subieq

Same! Sleeping with me has to be like sleeping in a washing machine.


Creamofsoup

Hello fellow teenager. My wife and I started sleeping in separate rooms when she was 7 months pregnant. Daughter is now 6 months old and I have no intentions on sleeping together full time again. Separate rooms/beds is fucking amazing. Only person that's ever given me shit is my divorced mom (but I feel like she lost her right to give marriage advice).


fermentedmillk

medical reasons… do they have chicken pox ?! 😩


ty2cool476

nahh both of them are disabled in one shape or form so they have different bed needs but refuse to get a bed that fits both of them


fermentedmillk

understandable


Parth999x

Have a nice day


el_loud_nigra

same here, only mine are actually in a kinda toxic relationship, and have always been, but they're stuck together cause we're poor and a divorce will only make things worse for us. Hope your parents and you are ok other than that


thebananaperson1

they do, but they don’t really act in a romantic way. they act more like brother and sister than they do husband and wife. they don’t hug or kiss or anything like that. they also don’t sleep in the same bed, they have separate bedrooms.


fermentedmillk

inch resting 🧐


[deleted]

Uh where you gonna rest that inch 0_0


barbie_farts_88

I'd love to know if anyone else's relationship is like this. If it's more typical than I realize or if it's really uncommon.


Safe-Orchid6875

It's very common in South East Asian families.


barbie_farts_88

Thank you for your feedback. I hope more people will chime in as well.


3jh2t2Kt3te36j3ywTj7

Chiming.. .. ..


Maremike

Russian families as well. I noticed everyone of our relatives is like that


Ministerofcookies

I’ve seen this alot in couples who were wed out (Idk of this is the right word) by their parents and married someone they didnt really know so the only thing that holds these people together is mutual respect as far as I can comprehend..


philly_steak_cheese

They just don’t do it in front of you.


thebananaperson1

but i’m always with my parents. and when i’m at school my dad is at work and my mom sleeps


DOREMANX

They might not do it regularly but they do it while you're away. Mine is like that, they usually sleep separately for biological reason but after I got home from a month long visit to my grandma, I found like 3 used condom packets under my mom bed.


Similar-Inspector11

same with my parents, except they hug at times


SimonX153

Same


Bluupertybleep

They sure as hell did when my mum was alive but uhh... yeah


fermentedmillk

my condolences 🫂💗


Bluupertybleep

Thanks. It was like 4 years ago so it's not too present in my mind anymore. But thank you


pianospace37

That means you were just 12? Im sorry. It must have been so hard on you. Idk how to say this, but You sure are a brave one if you toughed it out. My condolences...


Bluupertybleep

yeah. 12. And it was pretty hard looking back. Though at the time I just cut off any emotion I might have had. Thank you.


Supersageultima

*hugs you* We are here for you.

thelegend90210

What about a 16 year old brown enby


fermentedmillk

love that for u


Emergency_Soup7812

IT SO FUN U CAN SHARE :))


AlecksIsBad

My parents are kinda the same but we’re Catholic so there’s no quitting the team. In fact, their marriage was much worse before we converted to Catholicism. Their relationship is better, but it doesn’t seem like there is real love, and they annoy each other a lot. It’s really not that bad.


[deleted]

Yeah, same for me. I feel bad for my brother because he believes Everything that my super traditional Catholic parents tell him


Vaughninja

2 parents? I have one:my mom 😎


fermentedmillk

is she swag ? 😎


Vaughninja

Da-POG

breigns2

xXCool_Gamer_Dude_69Xx?


GoldenSkitty

My parents want to divorce but can't afford to live on their own. Yay :<


fermentedmillk

yea that’s partially why i think my parents are stalling


Ciel__000

In some way... I'm the reason why my family is still tethered together


Rise_03

Same here... Makes me wish I was never born in the first place... It hurts to see how much my mom has to suffer because of my dad, so indirectly because of me.


koli12801

Same. Been that way for a decade now.


satanic_bxtch

Same here


L3VT_YT

My parents are divorced B)


fermentedmillk

lovely 🤸🏾‍♀️


L3VT_YT

Yeah 🤸‍♂️🦽🏌️


Honest_Department_13

Probably not, they live in different houses and are divorced, I live with my mom most of the time, but spend about half my weekends with dad(I kinda wish I could be with dad more).


Alistair_TheAlvarian

If you're in the us when you turn 15 you can have your opinion taken into account for custody arrangements.


Honest_Department_13

It's not that bad, it's not ideal, but it's not really bad.


fermentedmillk

why can’t you alternate between spending most of the week with both of them ?


ayang04635

because the court system is against fathers in divorce cases


erichie

This depends on where you live now. I have a be 17 month old son. We decided to divorce when he was 8 months. I struggled with substance abuse. Instead of figuring out custody together we decided to fight it. She wanted me to have every Wednesday and every other weekend. I wanted 50/50. Her claim was that I am an unfit parent because of my drug addiction. My argument was that I was receiving help, she knew I had a problem when we met, and she originally agreed to 50/50 custody before her Mom told her to fight it. When we decided to divorce I was a week clean from a relapse that went from Jan 2021 (when my cat died, and then struggle of being in a marriage with someone who didn't love me) to April 2021. I originally stopped the hard stuff in April of 2020 until Jan 2021. When we decided to divorce I was 4 weeks clean. I dug in my toes and refused to leave unless I had 50/50. She stalled in an attempt to get her and her parents not cause me to relapse, but it didn't work. I was 7 months clean when the Judge ruled that I get 50/50 with no other restrictions.


goldenrod10

I don't know cause they are bipolar every single day like bruh why did y'all marry each other then


fermentedmillk

RIGHT same w my parents


thelegend90210

These mfs (only one of them is an mf) seriously thought “yeah we hate each other…. Let’s get married with two kids”


fermentedmillk

it’s so fuckin irritating how so many ppl decided to have children w/o fixing themselves first


thelegend90210

If you can’t cooperate you should’nt have kids


The-Local-Weeb

Well I walked in on them Fucking so yeah probably


DrSake_

Were they fucking or making love? There’s a difference


Paulo_De_Bruyne

Yes


bwils3423

#im14andthisisdeep


anyusernamethatislef

I heard my parents having sex yesterday (I'm traumatized btw) but i know they don't like each other. I don't understand why they keep having sex when they have no feelings.


Neil_Fallons_Ghost

You might be surprised how a long term relationship along with the stresses of life and raising a teenager might cause make it appear that ones parents are at odds. I certainly did when I was young. Then you live it and you realize that adulthood is a difficult battle and you don’t always get along but the love and life you share together is everything so you set aside your differences, make up, and get down.


Royal_Prize_4381

Cuz it feels goods


Your_Mother466

That is the one reason that I’m happy my parents are divorced, no risk of that


fermentedmillk

that’s horrible…that happened one time when i was abt 8 🥲 but tbh sex is meaningless nowadays cuz i heard mine fucking just a few months ago and they’re still having conflict 🥳


Da-POG

i can back this


HopelessMind43

The last time you heard them was a couple months ago? There’s definitely a problem.


UngusBungus_

I found pics of them fucking once


imposterforsure

Bro what


UngusBungus_

My dad and I have a synced picture gallery


Rube_KING

OMFG


thelegend90210

That’s scarring


im_not_martin

UngusBungus_

Un-delete them or I don’t believe you


UngusBungus_

UngusBungus_

oogabolabo

applejuicegrape

Damn the world is nuts! Am I the only one with two parents who love each other and their children?😕


Drblackcobra

My parents are the same as your parents bro.


applejuicegrape

*tips hat*


Drblackcobra

Ayy.


OwlerDuder

Do you think people end up on reddit without being depressed


-Z-3-R-0-

I ended up here originally because I wanted a place to share horror stories I wrote, and originally thought r/teenagers was cringe af lmao


fermentedmillk

must be nice lol


thejexorcist

I didn’t think they did, until my mom got sick. I kind of thought my dad would be one of those dudes who just leaves or half asses everything, but he even learned how to do her hair and makeup for her. Eventually he figured out her wig. It was surprisingly sweet and he loved her a lot more than I thought.


cyberpeachy420

awwww


Lower_Ad4146

I don’t even know my dad. All I know is he has another kid so I would assume no


fermentedmillk

do u think ur life would be better if you knew ur dad ?


Lower_Ad4146

Yeah tbh. I’m living in a house with all girls, 4 sisters and my mom so it’s kinda rough and I really wish I knew him


fermentedmillk

understandable, hope one day u get to know him


UngusBungus_

Hey there sport. I’m not your dad


foomy45

I grew up with my dad and it was extremely rough, really wish he hadn't been a part of my childhood. Sorry for your situation but just wanted to say the grass isn't always greener on the other side.


amogus_obssesed_Gal

I hope they do


skatingduckie

no not at all my mom lives in california and me and my dad live in pennsylvania


fermentedmillk

do u visit her ?


skatingduckie

no she's not a very good person


fermentedmillk

ahhh understandable


Praveenaaa29

Yeah they had an arranged marriage and love each other a lot idk how they do it 😭


fermentedmillk

i mean good for them, it all worked out lmao😭


Panic_x3

damn that's lucky, my parents had an arranged marriage too and they got divorced after 24 whole years of marriage. I think my dad loved my mom but she never loved him back :/


kassiopaia

How awful, wasting 24 years of each other's life's.


Alternative-Payment3

Tbh i have never met anyone irl that has had any relatives nor do i have any relatives myself who have suffered divorce And most people here have arranged marriages


[deleted]

Same dude my parents had an arranged marriage and they were absolutely in love with each other


ForEmbarassingConfes

My parents had an arranged marriage and they are fighting most of the time. I think they would divorce if there wasn't such a stigma attached to divorce in their culture. (I say "their" because we migrated to another country/I was born in a western country and I don't feel native to my parents' country).


[deleted]

No


fermentedmillk

real


SmolFluffyEevee

No they are divorced


ralseiperson

Oh definitely not


PrivatePickle109

I don't even know. They're constantly arguing but I don't think they'll divorce because of the bible or something...


universalsalsa

They love eachother but I don't think they're in love with eachother. I don't know if that makes sense.


fermentedmillk

makes perfect sense


universalsalsa

they fight all the time. Sometimes it get really bad and me and my sister are just there in the background while my mom's threatening divorce. They never showed signs of being all lovey dovey and in love but I know they love eachother and want the best for eachother. Damn that sounded depressing.


fermentedmillk

same, although mine don’t scream and get into physical altercations as much anymore i still hear them argue over everything


eggfriedricelover

Haven't seen my father for a few days now because of his job and my mother nearly left us about a month ago 😌 Thankfully grandparents exist and things have already calmed down a bit.


fermentedmillk

happy ur grandparents came in clutch 🤞🏽


Shermanvc25

Well I my parents divorced and my Dad died in the army so


Jamless_universe

Occasionally


Swag_katt

Average divorced parents child: 😁 Average dysfunctional family child: 😐


fermentedmillk

true, but both child’s could be in misery too😍


Iron_Kerman

No, no they dont.


Username100816

Yeah 🗿


fermentedmillk

wonderful 🥳


UngusBungus_

They play and stuff so yeah. But I still get scared when they argue


fermentedmillk

understandable, arguing doesn’t always mean they hate each other hopefully they learn to work through disagreements more effectively


DrSake_

Nah lol


Real_Sharkbyte

My parents only had me and since have not been in bed but my parents hate each other to the bone but hold together for me but I am almost certain they will divorce when I leave the house


Sufficient_Beach9682

they don’t sleep in the same bedroom and never say i love you. granted, they don’t say i love you to anyone (including me) 22 years and going on strong! 😭


MysticWombat

But we love you! ❤️


Sufficient_Beach9682

ty love you too ❤️


fermentedmillk

idk, if i were married i’d want to sleep in separate rooms but maybe they’re just not good at showing affection lol


Sufficient_Beach9682

i wouldn’t 🥺 i would wanna cuddle


fermentedmillk

that’s why you would just visit each other’s rooms, i just think that’s ideal because being in each other’s space all the time seems exhausting


Soda_Addict_XD

They are divorced and are fucking other people so something tells me that they ding have strong feelings for eachother, not sure what it is just a gut feeling


Thy_leader

Yeah they do


fermentedmillk

nice 🥳


gladRussiancloud

Come on, of course no, they don't. I don't know how but they often argue and at the same time they have many dialogues about everything every single day in warm atmosphere, play cards, watch the news every evening and discuss them and so on. But their arguments make me really sad and mad. I want more good moments less bad ones


fermentedmillk

understandable, same here kinda


gladRussiancloud

Help, please. I'm new here. So... How to make it so that the age under the nickname is visible?


fermentedmillk
