my parents have been married for 25 years and my parents never had a love relationship bc it was an arranged marriage so it was more about being comfortable with one another. anyways, recently my dad had been staying out later at work, spending more time with his friends, and sleeping on the sofa at nites (and i know hes not having an affair or anything)..at first, i didnt think anything of it until my mom cried to me about it about 3 days ago. since my mom and dad dont have much communication b/w them, i confronted my father last nite and asked why he wasnt coming home, etc. he basically told me he was thinking of divorcing my mom bc he was unhappy and felt like he would literally die if he stayed with her. and i was totally crushed when i heard this. at around 3am this morning, i heard my mom begging my dad to sleep in the bedroom and he was pushing her away telling her he couldnt stay with her, etc. and my mom freaked out and started sobbing bc this whole thing really did seem to come out of nowhere. i tried reasoning with my dad about this, but he seems like this is the only way. he basically said he feels stressed coming home and he just wants to be alone and be peaceful. now i dont know what to do..im totally crushed and upset..everytime i come home i cry and my mom was one of those dependent wives, so if my dad really does leave, i dont know what that would do to her. right now, i hate my dad, i feel like hes being ridiculously insensitive about this..he decided to tell me all this 2 wks before my 21st bday and right before my last yr of college..i dont know how my mom would take care of herself or anything. divorce is definitely an unknown and somewhat taboo topic in the indian culture, bc once u get arranged with someone, u stay with them forever; so this feels especially hard for me, bc i never wouldve thought this would happen in a million years. im sorry that this is so long..i just wanted to vent and get it out.
