This Affects Everyone
Separation and divorce affects everyone in a family. Some (breakups) are better than others because all parties are determined to make it as painless as possible. These are the people that will remain friends decades later.
There are other people, however, that are hell-bent on making life as miserable for their former partners as they can, dragging the whole family--children, parents, extended family and friends--into their nastiness. They do everything to try to destroy what little goodness is left in any ties to the other. They go about their lives to embarrass or disparage others; they lie blatantly. In the meanwhile, everything they say and do about others is the reflection of who they are.
Standing on the sidelines, party to the disgusting display of everything that can be evil in another human being, without being able to do anything but offer support where one can, has to be one of the hardest things to do in life. It is also just as difficult to refrain from spewing out retaliatory venom.
All one can do is hope and pray that truth and justice will prevail, and trust that karma will take care of the rest of it.
