Couples loses child then separates


Recommended Posts

A couple who are friends of mine separated after 20+ years of marriage.


They have 3 children all of them adults now.


In 2000 they lost one of their children to cancer. The boy was aged only 8.


It was a tragedy and all the friends felt for this couple so much.


Now they have separated. They were so close to each other.


How can cancer do this to someone? Keep destroying lives after it's taken one already??

I know of others this has happened to. I guess I don't know the inside story, but I can see how cancer or the death of a child can be extremely stressful, and that the two people can easily wind up neglecting their marriage while taking care of the child, or by the stress of the death, taking it out on each other and blaming each other perhaps.
