It is a sad fact that, these days, divorce has become so common and the staggering statistics tell us exactly that. According to the American Psychological Association, about 40 to 50% of married couples in the United States end up in divorce – and the rate is even higher for subsequent marriages.

What’s even sadder, however, is when you consider that divorce involves not only the husband and the wife but also the children, if they have any. The young ones are the ones who are most affected and devastated.

This has been accurately captured on pen and paper by an artist who simply goes by the name ‘Mac’. His sad comic about divorce recently went viral on social media and he has even been featured on several websites. Moreover, his piece has also generated a lot of comments from those who both had similar and different experiences in their lives.

Read the comic below and see for yourself:

Here are some reactions from people who related with the comic:

On the other hand, there are also those who took the time to share that they, fortunately, had very different experiences after their parents divorced:

Of course, it should be acknowledged that every divorce is different and the way families handle them can vary from case to case, just like the comments above show us. Needless to say, getting a divorce is definitely a life-changing decision that affects many so every couple should really think hard before even considering it.

As one netizen commented regarding Mac’s heartbreaking comic,

“This should be required reading before having children.”

We really couldn’t help but agree with that.
