Sad Day

I know men around the globe are rejoicing, however divorce is ugly, sad, complicated, and terrible, and I am heartbroken to see that Jon & Kate are splitting up. I cannot imagine the stress of having 8 children coupled with cameras constantly taping, heightened paparazzi and the effect it has on a family or a couple. At the end of the day I am sure they will do what is best for those kids. It's difficult for me to understand, but sometimes the best parents don't make the best couple.

I don't claim to have a professional opinion on their marriage; however as one of the 10 million viewers that tune in to watch their family week to week, we are given not only a glimpse but practically an invitation into their household. The speculation surrounding the collapse of their marriage is nobody's business but their own. Their family, and children specifically, warmed so many hearts that it is difficult to just let it go. I certainly hope the media respects this time for them as they work out what will come next for them and that they can move on with their lives.
