Divorced from

parental support

Sir: What an outrageous suggestion in "Eighteen is a dangerous age" (Tabloid, 25 July) that parents should put off getting divorced until their child is in his or her "second or third deep relationship" - and this even after they have left home!

This is clearly a case of swapping one life for another. After I left home (at just 18) the atmosphere between my parents was so rancid that I could not form a stable, supportive relationship with either of them until they got divorced - in their seventies.
