Of course, I mean do you THINK it's a factor and is that why it's hard not to feel guilty? In my case, yes, I was divorced. I think it REALLY affected Julie's behavior. When I remarried and moved out of state, she had no friends, was shy, and the drugs started. So I still feel badly about that. I feel I was insensitive to her and we have talked about it. I don't think it made 36 better or worse. He didn't like the divorce, but he was doing horribly before it too. How do you feel about this issue? Today, while reading, it occurred to me that we have very few intact families and, as far as I know, NO intact families where the adult children ended up with criminal leanings. Unless I'm missing somebody (sorry if I am!!!). How many of our own parents divorced? Mine did, but not until I was in my 20s.
