Oh, Jeff, if it hangs in the air when you talk to them it's b/c they are HURTING for you and don't know how to make you feel better, not b/c they are ashamed at you b/c your marriage ended.

You don't have anything to feel embarrassed for. You behaved honorably.

So go home so your mom can fix you your favorite foods and your dad can let you know how proud he is of you.

There's no better place to lick your wounds than home...w/ the two people in the world who couldn't love you more.
