I know this isn't the answer you want but I don't think you can stop them. All you can really do is let them know how you feel about it and be there for both of them. Mentally, and physically. Let them know right off the bat that you WILL NOT pick sides between them and that you love them both equally. Sometimes, people don't know each other as well as they thought they did and they just, I dunno... fall out of love I guess. But everybody deserves to be happy, and nobody should have to stick around in a miserable relationship to make someone else happy. It just isn't fair to them. Regardless, divorces suck. Trust me I know. And it's terrible for the kids to go through as well as the parents. Often it's worse for the kids. All you can do is try to soldier on and deal with the fallout the best that you can. It won't be easy, but it does get better. With time. I'm so sorry for you. Stay strong<3

You dont. You need to accept the fact. I know it is very difficult and you might need to cry but there is no way to undo what your parents want. If they want it it means they are not right for each other. It is best to let it all out now.
I'm sorry, but that's not up to you. If things aren't working out, it's not because of you, it's because their relationship itself is flawed. But, being a perfect little angel could make everything less stressful and then you couldn't possibly have a strain on their relationship.
If they really want to you really can't stop. It might help that you have a sit down and no one is allowed to talk while another is talking that way amendments can be made therefor making your parents think twice about the divorce. If that doesn't work there is nothing you can really do about it. I really hope that it works out for you. But try to understand that it is not your choice wether the divorce is done. I'm sorry for what happened.
