Are your parents divorced? Do you remember the moment you realized their divorce was real?
Not necessarily when they told you they were getting divorced, but when it truly hit home — when you thought, “Life is different now, and it’s always going to be different.” Tell us the story of that moment: What happened, where were you, and how did you feel?
