I don't like validation posts, but...

My brother came over yesterday to announce that he and my sister-in-law are getting a divorce. My mother, in the midst of her reaction, was worried that I didn't seem to react enough. I didn't cry, I wasn't angry, my parents and my brother were calm.

This also wasn't really unexpected -- my folks and I have been noticing the signs for the past 6 months to a year. My brother and his wife will remain friends, and they have no kids. I love them both, but they're grownups, and this isn't the end of the world.

So was sitting there quietly okay, TQC? Or was my mother right?
