  • Even if you're a mature adult, your parents' marriage can feel like a security blanket.

Philanthropists, public health advocates, and businesspeople Bill and Melinda Gates announced Monday that they are splitting up after 27 years of marriage.

Their three children are adults - Phoebe, 18, Rory, 21, and Jeniffer, 25 - but that doesn't mean their parents' divorce won't be challenging, experts say.

‘Planning Meals In Advance With The iTrackBites App Was Crucial In My 80-Lb. Weight Loss’

  ‘Planning Meals In Advance With The iTrackBites App Was Crucial In My 80-Lb. Weight Loss’ Dr. Anthony Fauci tells TODAY that “there are some states that are pulling back now, I believe more prematurely than they should, on the public health measures … there is a risk that you are going to rebound” and warns, “it really is going to be a race between the virus and a potential surge.” He also weighs in on new research suggesting that schoolchildren may be as safe distanced 3 feet apart as they are at 6 feet.

People may assume that divorced parents' adult kids are better able to handle a split than young kids, but Rachel Sussman, a relationships therapist in New York City, said a parents' divorce after a long-term marriage, no matter what age, is upsetting and challenging.

"I think there's an element of shock and surprise for kids of any age," Sussman told Insider.

Although a parents' divorce may be painful, Sussman said there are steps you can take to navigate your way through the experience.

Even if y0u're a mature adult, a parental divorce is shocking

Sussman said it's OK for us all to admit to ourselves that, even as mature adults, the world is a scary, hard place, and sometimes you may rely on your family unit - and your parents' marriage - for a sense of security.

One Major Side Effect of Eating Processed Meat, New Study Says

  One Major Side Effect of Eating Processed Meat, New Study Says A new study may cause you to put down the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, or at least encourage you to eat it less often.New research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that regularly eating processed meat can increase your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The global study collected information from the diets and health outcomes of more than 134,000 people from 21 countries, of which spanned across five continents.

In adulthood, we get jobs, pay bills, and create our own schedules, but when you're with your parents, you can revert back to being a child; being looked-after.

"There's a dynamic with even adults that when they're with their parents, they can feel a little childlike and they want to be cared for by their parents," Sussman said.

But a parental divorce can leave you feeling unstable.

"It feels like that last security blanket is being ripped out from under them," Sussman said.

Ways to cope when your parents get a divorce

It is shocking, but there are ways to recover and adapt, according to Sussman.

Sussman said clients she sees in her practice go through different stages of emotions: shock, sadness, anger, and acceptance. She advises people to articulate these feelings to their parents in the moment, to avoid lasting emotional damage.

Sussman also recommended going to a therapist who will provide an outlet to discuss your feelings, and creating a support system of friends.

A parental divorce can also lead to resiliency. If your parents had an amicable divorce and left the marriage in a happier, better place, Sussman said it may help you to navigate your own relationships and potential breakups in the future.

If you're parents had a nasty divorce, Sussman said, that doesn't mean it has to be a weight you will carry for the rest of your life.

"Maybe aspects of your life are changing, but that doesn't mean you can't still have a great life and a great relationship with both parents."
