Hey bud, what your parents do has nothing to do with your actions, suicide is NOT the answer. We all have our faults, and we all fail in life at some point, but ending your life is a sad way to try and correct what happened, and in this case it's not even you that failed. Dont project the sins of someone else, even your parents, onto yourself, it's not your fault. My grandfather committed suicide, I was about 6 or 7 at the time. It still haunts me to this day when I think about it. If you start thinking about that please think about others in your life that will be affected by that decision and imagine what they will go through afterwards. Seek help, talk to someone, your life is precious and not to be wasted. I'm sorry you're going through this, I'm sure it's terrible to see your parents struggle. I'm praying for you.

Thanks, I feel so upset right now. I feel like i'll never be happy. My parents divorced when was very young and i never had a father figure for 8 years. When my mom found my stepdad they were in love and i actually had a father figure. It felt nice. But yesterday my mom found out that my dad Did the deed with other women. My mother was so upset she started yelling at my Dad and started hitting them. The worst part is that they had a baby. Now I think were back to the phase were It was just me my mom and my siblings, and a baby to take care of.

You have every right to be upset friend...people do really dumb stuff sometimes, and they dont think about others. Sounds like you've had it rough for a while, but I will say that your story inspires me to be a better husband and father to my wife and daughter. Us dads aren't all bad and I encourage you to hang in there and be there for your mom so she has a good man in her life too. Some day when you're a dad and husband, remember how important it is to be the anchor for your family and how much grief it can cause when its forsaken. This is a good time for you to take notes and set your own example of how a man should be there for his family. You've got great potential, own it son! Let me know if I can help, even if it's a simple prayer for you.

Can I make a recommendation? Welcome your half sibling without any reservations. They did nothing wrong and you may find it helps you cope.

My wife's second husband cheated on her and then after they divorced, he married the woman he cheated with. Well she died this year and while none of us will mourn her, we are still friendly with him. (Did I mention the woman was my wife's brother's ex?) There children involved and everyone gets together for important functions now and then and we rather it not be an episode of Cops.

And when it comes to cheating, the myth that we are meant to find our soulmate and live forever together and never look at another is just that. I have several women in my life that I would like to sleep with because I am attracted to them just like I was to my wife 24 years ago. I don't do anything about it because I treasure my wife, but some don't have that control because we males are hard wired to try and spread our genetic information. It's nature and sometimes it wins.

And not every marriage is meant to last. My parents are at 60 years, but I know few couples that last that long. Especially a marriage based on sex. Sex is great, but I rather spend a day walking around a museum with my wife and get more from it. My brother's ex dumped him after two kids for an old flame and he dumped her shortly after. My sister and her husband split over where to retire. He has moved back to PR and she stayed in New York. We are still very good friends and he visits my parents, but they simply didn't love each other anymore.It happens. The important lesson here, none of it happened because of the children. Now be strong for your mother. She needs you more than ever right now.

My parents divorced when I was in my mid-20’s, as did my wife’s. We were out of our houses by that point, so it wasn’t quite as destabilizing as the situation faced by a lot of kids, but it was still shocking and made us question a lot about our lives. Like: How long had our parents been out of love, did they only stay together because of us, could we have done anything to keep them together.

Neither of our moms are perfect (of course, no one is), I think we both ended up blaming our dads more than anyone. We still see our Dads on occasion, but not as frequently as before, and in my wife’s case for sure she is still dealing with feelings of betrayal.

Neither of us knows for a fact if physical cheating was involved in either case (in her dad’s case, there was at least an emotional affair), but it wouldn’t surprise us to learn that it had.

It gets better with time. What once felt like an open bleeding wound has healed over somewhat and is now just a dull pain that surfaces much less frequently. A scar we will always carry — but no one gets through life unscathed.

What do you mean it was 'weird'
reply
4 ups, 6m
The reasons vary
Sometimes it's because they're unhappy with their partner
Other times it's because they fell for the seduction of another
I may never know why your dad did it
But all I know is that it's not your fault and you shouldn't hurt yourself because of this
Your father lost control and gave in to the tricks of the devil
We can't help you physically but we can give words of advice and prayers
Don't give up, bud
You're strong and we can make it through this

Feels for you dude. My suggestion hate the B word of a woman who would try to seduce a married man. Then tell your stepfather that he disappointed and hurt you and never speak to him

What your father did was horrible. I hate it when parents divorce, because they don’t know the damage that it could cause. Just save your go***amn relationship before things go south.

I think the main reason people cheat is boredom. They want action and adrenaline. Maybe it’s because they don’t like the relationship they were in.

I don’t really know for sure, as I never cheated before.

You are an amazing person. Sending you many virtual hugs!

reply
0 ups, 6m
yeah, I just thought you ment a long weekend as if you-wanted-it-to-be-over, long. not-really-frustrating-becuase-my-parents-cheated long
(sorry I think I'm overreacting)
but to answer your question. normally people do it becuase either there bored of the one they have, or they feel that they want a quick break or a simple answer Drugs.
a second way to answer this. listen to Thparky, he gives the best advice.

The world seems broken if you look at it through a cracked lens

It's all about what kind of lens you see the world through
