Why not? It's not like we know this guy's real name and are gonna track down his family based on this story. If he wants to vent, let him.
If this stuff happened 20 years ago then obviously both your parents at some point decided to put it behind them. I can't see a relationship working for 20 years if they kept throwing that shit in each other's faces. What you heard was probably out of spite because they're splitting up now, likely for different reasons. My point is, they put it behind them for 20 years, so you might as well put it behind you also. Your mom and dad didn't suddenly become different people because you learned a couple facts about them from 20 years ago. Also, your mom stayed with you and kept the family together. That's something to be very relieved about.
I would say forget about that stuff because it didn't affect your life then, or for 20 years, so don't let it affect your life now. There is no upside in dwelling on this stuff.
