Divorce is so sad for children

The parents of one of the friends of my daughters are divorcing.
After witnessing many terrible rows, she also has to witness her family being split up.
And even worse: she has to make a choice between her parents, where to live.

My girls are almost in tears when they tell it.
They care deeply for their friend and seeing her this way really touches them.

We take our time to talk about all sorts of subjects related to marriage and responsibility for the wellbeing of other people.
All good plans for the rest of the afternoon are forgotten, and it's nearly dinnertime when we end our conversation with the wish to be real friends and that the girl can come here anytime to talk or just be at ease.
