"divorce"
Jon and Kate, I am a school teacher in Ct. I have seen many children over the last 22 years. Divorce turns those wonderful children into sad and completeley different individuals. Quite honestly, it ruins your children. It feels like a death to them. I also babysit for a friends daughter and son who lost their mom 3 years ago. These children would do anything to have their mom back. This has changed them tremendously. Unfortunately, they can't get their mom back, but Jon and Kate, can't you figure something out for your children? You both say it's all about the children, but it really is all about you. There are marriage councelors that can help save your marriage. A family unit means just that. Family stays together unless there is abuse. Work it out. You are teaching your children bad relationship skills and that it is easy to get out when the going gets tough. Communication is a powerful tool. You are all in this together. Good luck!

1. "RE: divorce"
In some respects I agree with you, however I have two points.

Firstly we do not know if John and Kate have been having counselling away from the camera.

And secondly, to my mind bringing children up in a house where the parents relationship has broken down is much worse than having the parents split up, it keeps them away from the arguments and sniping, and also raises the possibility of a step parent.

Arrrr Cap'n!

LAST EDITED ON 06-24-09 AT 04:56 AM (EST)

As a a kid who's parents should have divorced, I could not agree more. Making each other miserable was what made them happy and the kids knew it and felt it every day.

Jon seems very happy to be free, while it seems Kate finally realized that maybe she is too hard on Jon. They lived for their kids but they forgot about themselves. Kate did not want to hear Jon but Jon did now want to be heard. So both of them are at fault and I feel for the kids because they can get the DVD's later in life and see how it all came apart.

So so sad, and true!! These kids will be living with this forever, and who will be there to pick up the pieces for all eight of them?? How can one or two people, who are so fixated on themselves, possible string themselves out that far-far enough to help THAT many little souls get through this safely and in a healthy way?? SAD SAD SAD!!! I hate what this is doing to those babies! As all of us do.

Have you ever seen the way Kate speaks to Jon?

I have to agree with Starshine. While I would prefer not to have ever divorced, I am sure that I am in a much better relationship now, and that showing my kids this better relationship is better than putting them through years of seeing a broken one.

Marriage councelors? Definitely not magic healers of marriages.

How do you know that they didn’t go to any marriage counseling?

It is in the best interest of children to be raised in a peaceful home filled with love. They deserve to know what a loving adult relationship is like. I find the idea that two miserable people should stay in a miserable relationship for the sake of the “family unit” to be absurd. I agree that people should make a concerted effort to work on their problems and try to save their marriage. But at some point it becomes obvious that some marriages cannot be saved. If the children you know whose parents are divorced are miserable, imagine how much more miserable they would be if they lived in a house with two adults who disliked, or even hated, one another.

Divorce is never easy and I don’t think this was some frivolous decision by J&K. I hope they find happiness.

6. "RE: divorce - AMEN"
Irlaudisi, I could not agree with you more. They each say that this is what "has" to happen and that they were doing their "best" for their children. I'm sorry but that is simply BS. Loving your spouse often is more an act of your will than a feeling. Act out that love and the feelings will follow - I promise, I know.

The only thing in this that would be good for those poor kids is for their parents to be slapped in the face, take responsibility for the reality of their situation and FIX IT. Jon clearly checked out of that marriage long ago and I can't say I blame him - she is often downright verbally abusive on film. HOWEVER, Kate is so frustrated with Jon by his seemingly irresponsible behavior that I can't say I blame her either.

Both are at fault and as you said, are only thinking about themselves. Jon - you may only be 32 but you should have thought about that before you fathered 8 children. Your feelings don't give you the rights to ruin the lives of these human beings.

So frustrated....was once a loyal view but I AM OUT.

7. "For the record:"
Kate is never going to (in her eyes) stoop low enough to venture onto a message board and find out what the common folk think of her. If you want to send a letter to her, you're better off hiring a plane to tow a banner.

Jon might show up, but it'll take a while. Kate wouldn't let him have his own computer, so he'll need a few days to pick something out, figure out a password, think of a name she won't recognize...
