Hey Jen! A new song you can add to this list is, "Don't Give Up" by Sanctus Real. It is off their new "The Face of Love" album (GREAT album, by the way). It was written as a letter to one of their friends who had decided to get a divorce.

Maybe this doesn't necessarily fit the "Children of Divorce" soundtrack, but it's a great song against divorce in general and will hopefully be used by God to grab the attention of those on the verge of giving up on love.

Two Beds and a Coffee Machine by Savage Garden.
Actually, the entire "Affirmation" album was about Darren Hayes' divorce...

I have been greatly encouraged by "Lead of Love" by Caedmon's Call and "What is Not Love" by Derek Webb on his "I See Things Upsidedown" album. That album really helped me get through my parents' divorce. And Shawn McDonald's "Perfectly Done" off his "Ripen" CD. He wrote it in response to a crying girl because he didn't know what to do or say, God love him! Lately, Paul Simon's "American Tune" has been on my heart.

That's such a good idea if you want your children to overcome the traumatic process of divorce. There should be a song that can be used as a therapy.

I find that "Stay" by Safetysuit is comforting through my parents divorce....

It is normal even for divorced people to doubt and question couples on the verge of divorcing. Separation usually connotes negative views because it is - divorce is a fruit of a failed marriage. However, with better understanding of the situation, people will understand divorce and accept it as what it is. It may be the fault of the other or both, but divorce is for the best in this case. And at last nice song for offcourse divorce.

"Someday But Not Today" by Nightmare of You.
it's about children of divorce not being able to give in to love because they're afraid it will end badly.
