Is there anything more self centered than divorcing your spouse for anything other than severe physical abuse?
Ruining the lives of your children just because you're bored is unacceptable and these people should be harshly punished.
The point is that the parents were only "miserable" because the wife was a screeching pig who cared more about her petty feelings than her husband or children.
There's a reason divorce only became a thing after we started pretending women were equal.
First of all, that's not usually true.
Second of all, kids aren't stupid, they still see that their parents don't live with each other, and that will affect them.
Then why did they divorce?
they split up, didn't see it as a big deal, she was the primary breadwinner and his commute was so long that he wasn't there much anyways.
i'd rather have my dad live his life then have to be a factory worker/ stay at home dad or whatever so he could check in on me to make sure i'm not jerking off to videogames 4 hours a day like i was.
