“That was amazing.. what a beautiful reaction. Mom had a wonderful voice, too.

Nothing like the reaction my son had to my singing voice early on. He hated it (and mine isn't great, but not that bad!!). My rendition of "Happy Birthday" made him cry, and not in a good way :(”

“Agree with you, you should look for those ways to help each other. Yes.

After 50 years of age and three children - so I might hazard a guess that she was married 20, 25 30 years - I would think that she gave it more than a few chances. I presume, of course.

But my last statement indicated that if that doesn't work, you are under no obligation to stay. One person cannot carry a bad marriage, and should not be expected to.”

“Dear David,

You have gracefully stood up for humans and the validity of emotions that should not have to be justified, yet are constantly judged and attacked.

Yours was a valiant post, yet I regret the situation you were in. No one deserves that, and that you recognized your worth and made a stand for your own life and sanity, too, is commendable.

Best of luck to you, sir. and as you say... Peace and blessings.”

“No. It is tough for all children to accept and understand the impact of divorce. But pile on top of this the fact that the children come from dysfunctional families (it is near impossible to have a functional family with an alcoholic in it), the situation is amplified. They likely already were dealing with depression and trust issues (comes with the dysfunction) and would not recognize a "healthy" move as it was being made.

No matter, if this indeed was the situation, it was a healthy move, and the children can hopefully get the help they need to cope and to mature into fully functioning adults.”

“I don't know about that. She mentions her husband's drinking as a major contributing factor.

"I declared my independence from someone whose drinking was ruining not just his life, but our entire family"...

If a man had said that of his alcoholic and destructive wife, I would not consider it selfish and irresponsible for him to need to extricate himself from such a situation.

I am making a presumption here - for both men and women - that there were numerous attempts to help the spouse overcome the destructive habit. Typically, I think there is. But if all efforts fail, I think a valid choice is to leave.”

“I cannot agree with your reasoning at all. There is one and only one culprit here, and that is the one who assaulted the boy.”

Lynette Davis on Oct 18, 2013 at 23:13:13

“And you have the right to disagree. Do you or have you, yourself, had any children in the public, private, or parochial school systems? Have you known of any parents present in a school and leaving their child alone with a school principal while they just stood idly by outside the door? I have not. I have had three sons in both public and parochial schools and never once have I known of any parents while in the school leaving their children alone with a principal for disciplinary or any purposes, or even to praise the child for a commendable act. Yes, the principal bears blame for his egregious and perverse act, but the question still remains as to why the parents left the child alone. To give them the benefit of a doubt, maybe they had to take a phone call.”
