Personal Narrative: Divorce

Divorce is a legal action between married people, they terminate their marriage relationship, it is also called a dissolution of a marriage. I had a very close and important person in my life go through divorce. It is something that is horrifying to see someone go through special when that person is a family member, like my sister. For this assignment, I sat down with her and interviewed her. It was painful and there were definably tears. I had never sat down with her and discussed everything. When she went through this we all just tried to get passed it as fast as we could, including herself.

She was 2 months pregnant when they got married, and just at the end of the 9th month of pregnancy they split up. I had so many questions for my sister, questions that I had never asked her. For example, why? Why did you stay with him, even when he was just an asshole to you? And all he did was blame you for being pregnant?

My mother and I got to experience the birth of the baby. I remember that day, my sister called her ex-husband and told him that the baby had been born.

She said that the reason why it ended was because he was always listening to his mother, she did not want to let him go. She did not want my sister to take him from her, that’s how she described it to me. She said that his mother was always in between and the worse part was that she would manipulate him. She also told me that they were just too young for everything, having a baby, then getting married, and moving away from home, it was more than what they could have
