Parents spent the last 10 months and $200K getting divorced. Last week my dad signed the papers, and today he texted to tell me they’ve decided to get back together and make it work. I’m so over it.

Look, I get it but it is really hard ending a relationship after being together for so long. You become so connected and intertwined, it is really hard to split up. Be sympathetic. It’s not a fun thing to go through. I would never wish this on anyone. Plus look at the positives - you don’t have to worry about two sets of holidays ;)

When my parents decided to get divorced after 50+ years of marriage the first thing I said to them was “both of you are old coots who won’t change and can be somewhat unlikable and definite pains in the ass. are you sure you want to do this? The only people I know who could tolerate you for any length of time are each other”. I caught hell but I was right. There is nothing more unsettling then senior citizens who decide they want to get their swerve on but don’t have good sense or good manners and leave a wake of chaos and distraction in their paths more importantly they’re still not divorced and it’s been about six years I refuse to partake in their shenanigans

I’m sorry about your situation OP. My parents have been divorced for many years but still manage to stir all kinds of drama and dysfunction, it’s hard to go though. I found therapy really helped to deal better with this type of situation and to respond in different ways, without being upset all the time. I highly recommend that. Also do you have any siblings? It could be a good time to bond and support each other.

Well maybe going through the divorce process made them realize what they were about to lose and taking for granted before

Just started working in consulting recently so would really appreciate some advice! Any comments as to why consultants work such long hours and under compressed timelines? It seems quite unnecessary, why aren’t projects scoped out with longer timelines to not overwork their staff and not have quick sprints for deliverables? Can’t imagine why anyone wants to actually work this much even at the senior levels, TIA
