Despite announcing their split late last year, NBA star Kobe Bryant and his estranged wife, Vanessa, may not be going through with their divorce after all, TMZ reported earlier this month. But how would a reconciliation affect their two children, Natalia, 9, and Gianna, 6?
Huffington Post staff writer Natasha Burton recently tackled that question and detailed her own experience with parents who had an on-again, off-again marriage. Burton writes of the confusion she felt as she watched her father and stepmother "marry, divorce, reconcile, break up and then get married again." As a teenage bystander to their relationship, she says she couldn't "understand why they didn't just split for good."
Now, with Burton's piece in mind, we want to know: Have your parents split up and gotten back together? Do you want them to? And how did this impact you and the relationship you've had with them as an adult?
