  • Lisa – I’m 44 now and my parents got divorced when I was 6-years-old. I still have trauma from what happened.
  • Lisa – I have been divorced and I know that it affected my children greatly. (05:29)
  • Ann – I was in a marriage where I was in danger I had had to leave. My children didn’t know their father was hurting me.
  • Julie – I thought my parents were going to get a divorce when I saw that my husband’s family get divorced. We vowed never to get divorced. It was hard watching him with what he was going through as an adult.
  • Jacquelyn – I had been fornicating with my boyfriend and now that I don’t want to have sex with him he is upset with me. What should I do? (26:54)
  • Del – My wife and I stayed married and we had 12 children, all still in the faith. My wife recently passed away but I wanted people to know that some people do make it work.
  • Jodi – I am an adult child of divorce and I am currently married but my husband left for another woman and the general devastation is really coming through. I would encourage people to not normalize the effects of divorce.
  • Nicole – I was on drugs when I met my boyfriend, but when I became Catholic I tried to stay in the state of grace and now my boyfriend is trying to get the sacraments. He agreed to give up sex with me so we can be chaste through Lent.
