Does anyone else have facebook friends who post things about how horrible it is for kids to come from a "broken home"? I hate it! My kids are happier now than they ever were, they are stable (dad sees them at our house or his moms house with me there about once a month) and they are thriving. Our home is not broken, it's just different.

Yes, I know people who do that. And I always use this comment: 

 

My home is NOT broken. It WAS broken, when I was still with my ex, and because I agree with you that children should not grow up in broken homes, I left my ex. Now my children live in a happy, healthy, WHOLE and UNBROKEN home, and their lives are much better. 

 

I get a few who want to argue, but most seem to realize that even if they disagree with me, continuing with a personal insult toward my home and my family (which is what they'd be doing if they continued) is the surest way to lose a friend and make yourself look like an ass, so they let it drop.

as opposed to when my ex lived at my home and was a complete toad to myself and my family? LOL so that was a complete home? i am often surprised what people will endure to keep up appearances.

i'll take my chances with the so-called broken home i have. it's all in how it is phrased. don't let them upset you.
