Default Patron Saint of Children of Divorced Parents

My parents have been divorced for 15 years (I'm 18 now) and every once in awhile (like today) for various reasons it still bothers me. I was wondering if there is a patron saint of children of divorced parents. A google search gave me St. Eugene de Mazenod, the patron saint of dysfunctional families. Is there a more specific patron I should of which I should know? St. Eugene's feast day is my birthday which I do not believe to be a coincidence. Shall I stick with St. Eugene or do a combo of him and someone else?

I would also be interested in information about this. While my parents were married until the death of my father, unfortunately, my children will have to grow up as coming from a broken home.

Pax Christi,

While they aren't specifically saints for broken homes, I have always thought the idea of praying to Our Lady and St. Joseph, to the Holy Family as an excellent idea in such a situation. I also come from a broken family so I know how hard it can be. Pray to St. Joseph and Our Lady to take on the role of parents that is missing in your own human parents and so to help you grow well despite your broken background.
