First of all, I'm so sorry to hear about that... if they are it's because they think its the best option for all of you and you'll have to understand because you love them and want the best for them right? Getting divorced doesn't mean they don't love you or will stop caring about you, it just means they don't feel well living with each other again. It is not your fault! If it makes you feel sad or anxious you can try talk to one of us listeners or even a therapist :)

You don't need to do anything. Your parents' divorce is between them. Every divorce is different and I can't tell you how this one will turn out. Sometimes parents stay on good terms with each other. Sometimes it's a screaming match every time they're in the room together. Either way, your parents are adults and it's not your responsibility to sort out the problems between them. Hopefully you'll be able to continue having a normal relationship with both of them and they won't let the problems between them spill over into your life or especially not try to drag you into them directly, but if they do, you aren't under any obligation to take a side or try to fix their relationship. It's not *your* job to take care of *them*.
