  • Divorce is hard no matter what but definitely harder when children are involved.

  • i think it's harder on whom ever has put more into the relationship, the person who tried more to make it work. the difficultly increases ten-fold when you add kids into the mix, and again, its hardest on which ever parent has invested more into both the marriage and the kids (usually the same one, but sometimes one will put more into the marriage and the other will put more into the kids)

  • Obviously its harder when you have children, but I guess it depends on the situation as far as affecting men or women the most.

  • ditto on the harder if there are kids. As for who it's harder on, that all depends on the individuals. Some ppl are emotionally attached and some ppl are not. Some can see it's for the best and accept it quickly and move on.
