18. I was so happy when my parents divoreced I had a dress picked out to go to court in!
Of course I never went to court but I was in 3rd grade and remember feeling happy that I wouldnt have to live with my abusive and mean father. He beat us and my mother and was angry at her for backk when I didnt know anybetter for staying with him too long!

He pulled several stunts after the divorce though like not paying childsupport, using the corrupt crooked "justice" system of south texas to take us away from our mom for a bit (no we didnt stay with him, we got dumped on grandmas porch)

He is having a reverse midlife crisis and is trying to get involved in our lives and buy us things. I think that he is genuinely sorry he messed up part of our lives and think that he just was not cut out to be a father. I think it would be the enlightened thing to forgive him but I am not at that point yet
