I'm wondering especially how 35 and 45 year old people would answer this question. Did you have a friend whose parents went through divorce? Do you think that affected you? How? What did you see that perhaps changed your view of marriage, your dedication to your own relationships, or your fear of relationships? Were there secrets you felt you had to keep? How did the actions of the people you saw affect you? Of course, no matter what age you are or what age you were when you witnessed divorce OUTSIDE of your own family, I'd like to know what you saw and felt and how you it affected you.
