  • My parents "stayed together for the kids" as long as they could and we all knew they were miserable and wished from the time I was about 10 they would get a divorce. When I was 16 they did and everyone was much happier, so no I would not stay in an unhappy relationship for the kids.

  • Uh, no. Staying together in a loveless marriage does nothing for the kids. Nothing beneficial, anyway.
