Parents Split Up - Totally Unexpected


My parents split up just over 2 months ago which came as a total shock to me, I didn't see it coming at all, as far as I knew they were fine. There were no obvious signs no arguments, no distance or issues that could of put strain on their relationship and they've always supported each other through everything. The night before they broke up they were snuggled on the sofa watching TV together, both happy.

I came home from school to find my mum inconsolable saying that my dad had left, she was too upset to say why. I didn't hear from my dad for more then 12 hours until he called me the next day.

To this day I still don't know why they have broken up and they refuse to speak to each other. I don't know if it's because they are trying to protect me and my younger siblings or what but I feel like I need to know. Not all the details but a plain, simple reason would be nice!

My younger brother who's 13 is rebelling, pushing every boundery possible by skipping school, smoking, getting detentions. I really worried he'll end up getting suspended or worse. Thankfully my little sister who's 11 is adapting really well and is taking it all in her stride, as long as she sees both my parents she's ok.

I'm really trying to be patient with both my parents but my frustration anxiety is getting worse. I was wondering if his was normal? Should I not know why for my own sanity? Or is there anyone here who has separated/divorced parents and like me have no answers? I can't help but feel this will go on forever.
