My parents are in the process of getting divorced, and each of them wants me to be on their side of defending each other’s accusation. What position should I take?


Honouring one’s parents is a duty that is enjoined on children and disobeying them is something that is definitely forbidden. You should explain clearly to them that you will continue to honour them and will try hard to be kind to them. Try to reconcile between them but avoid inclining to either party at the expense of the other. You should also remember that the mother’s right to good companionship is three times that of the father, without detracting from the father’s right.
