My father is leaving my mother for a younger woman of my age

Hello, my father just announced he is divorcing my mother for a younger woman . She is 39 , the same age as me. My parents have been married for 40 years. I work for my father's company. please advise on how to prevent this from happening.


Noel's response

I don't think there is anything I can suggest that will prevent it from happening. I know it is very painful for you, and you might have a conversation with your father to let him know, using 'I statements', how his action is making you feel.

What effect his action has on what kind of relationship you want to have in the future is up to you.
