I think Stellar Flare looks way hotter with the tie on her, but Starlight doesn't do a bad job

Trixie: "Mommy can I have some Cider & Cookies?"
Starlight: "I dare you to call me that again!"
Trixie: "Only in Private" 
Starlight: *eyebrows raised*

So I gotta ask, being older now, have they ruined their kids' lives because of this?

To be fair, we're all genetic fusions of our parents. That sounds pretty weird when I say it like that.

It's a fact of life, you eventually become your parents...

But I guess you could blame it on the toxic magical potions waste dump on the other side of  Sires Hollow... the point where route 63 starts...

What they don't know do to the divorce is that they have the same parents.

Them becoming each other's parents, and Trixie's parents essentially never being around has me wondering if they could just turn Trixie into a foal and raise her as their kid...

Can that be a thing? Is that legal?

Yeah. I was thinking the same thing during 'The Parent Map'. Sunburst and Firelight are both romantics obsessed with the past, knowledge and books. Starlight and Stellar are both ambitious, career-minded women who like to control the people and environment around them.

They should both see a therapist. This relationship is not healthy =p

If Sun and Star have turned into each others parents does that mean Trixie will take after Star's mother, Sun's father, and her own father, and just vanish in a puff of smoke?

As I've said elsewhere, the biggest merit of "The Parent Map" as an episode is showing the parental dysfunction Starlight and Sunburst had to deal with growing up vs. the generally good parents of the Mane Six. Starlight turning into unscrupulous villain and Sunburst going into social isolation is at least partly explained by the behaviors we see in that episode from the respective parents.
