I am the classic product of the 'broken home'. However, as the 'Innocent Bystander' makes clear, my home was not merely broken, it was destroyed. Once my mother threatened suicide if my father should leave, he recruited me and my sister to make my mother's life a living hell. That way, SHE would leave and he would be free to pursue another man's wife. My sister and I were too young to know better. This was the very least of his sins. Children should not be involved in adult games.
