An Ugly Divorce

I have avoided writing about Jon and Kate Gosselin. I don't find it to be particularly interesting and more importantly I feel badly for their children.

I haven't any false ideas about marriage. I do not believe that every relationship is made to last and I am not of the opinion that people should stay married just for the children.

Anyhoo, I signed onto CNN and saw that Jon Gosselin says that he despises his wife and decided to give my two cents. I couldn't tell you if she is the worst wife ever or the best. I don't watch their show, but when I read that I got irritated.

Irritated because two adults decided to become reality television stars, decided to chronicle their lives on television. That is all fine and good, but now they are chronicling what appears to be a very ugly divorce on camera.

Now they are placing their children in a terrible position. They shouldn't have to worry about strangers asking if their mom is a bitch or their dad is a jerk. They shouldn't be able to have the end of their parent's marriage immortalized on camera. It is wrong.

My mom loves that show, so the last time we were in the US I watched a bunch of episodes with her- I knew right away they didn't have a great marriage because Kate always treated Jon like her 9th child. But no matter what...how could he say that about her, and in such a public forum? Doesn't he know his kids will read that one day? Terrible, just terrible. He should consider his kids' feelings and keep those thoughts to himself.

That is what bothers me. I don't care how nasty she is, the children don't need to be exposed to that.
