I always thought they were too hasty in pulling the first attempt at tackling divorce. Did they really expect kids not to get upset? Divorce is an upsetting thing. Kids have to learn to deal with those feelings too. I don't know, to me it's kind of wimpy to introduce the topic after it's already happened to Abby. It's avoiding all those painful emotions. Kids in real life won't be so lucky. And while divorce is actually happening to them, they're not just going to say "Oh well Abby was happy later on, so everything must be cool!" Divorce is a long, painful process that will last long after the episode ends. It's typical of my issues with the show the way it is now. It's all sanitized and avoiding real feelings.
