Spanish Tennis Champion Rafael Nadal has written his autobiography.  According to the article “Hard Blow – Grown Ups of Divorce” his parents announced that they were splitting in 2009.  Rafa would have been about 23 years old.

Adults whose parents have split up are much more outspoken.  They seem to be able to talk about their situations without being chided as manipulative or needing a “pity party.”

The article articulates many feelings that young children of divorce probably feel but can’t express.  I’m very happy when people like this speak out.
