Divorce is no Big Deal? Amy Poehler on Divorce

Unfortunately, two years ago Amy Poehler’s marriage ended. I found her description of divorce accurate and sad. “Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then Amy-Poehler--tv-guide-webtossing the whole thing up in the air.” “The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”1   My heart goes out to Amy and all those who have walked the divorce road, but from the perspective of children of divorce, her poignant comment is incomplete.

Divorced Parents arguing ACDA full description of a divorce from the perspective of the Adult Child of Divorce would read, “Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air.” “The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.” Then we watch Mom and Dad  take turns jumping up and down on the stuff on the blanket. 

Most adults with divorced parents are deeply aware of the truth of this. Hopefully those who believe divorce is no big deal would take a good close look at the picture Amy’s adjusted quote paints. Millions of yet-to-be children of divorce hope their parents will take this image to heart, and give their marriage a second look and a real second effort to save it.
