  •  When I was a 16 year old girl (9+ / 0-)

    and my parents had divorced, I was not interested in screwing guys.  I was interested in beating to death the skank who inserted herself into my parents' marriage and was stealing my things on the weeks I did not live at my father's house.  And she would rearrange the kitchen, the furniture, steal food and some of my clothes, some of my brother's things, our video games, etc. for her kids.  This woman was and still is a freaking psychopath, and she's lucky I didn't drive to her house and beat her to death with a baseball bat.  Because I had a lot of fantasies about doing that.

    Divorce and bad marriages can have absolutely terrifying effects on children.  Making them sluts isn't one.

      Don't take it the wrong way though, if I hope for you to find a way to let go of all that anger. Its awful having to deal with that, but you shouldn't have to carry that kind of baggage around.

        I have learned to let go of that anger, because all it did was hurt me.  But as an unstable teenager dealing with that?  Yeah, I had problems resulting my parents' divorce.  But none of it made me want to lay down with boys, which is what I find stupid about this idea that divorce causes sexual promiscuity in teens.

        It's funny, it's like I'm so far removed from those feelings that I can't even believe what I felt/thought at the time.  So believe me when I say, I don't feel those emotions anymore.  ;)
