My husband and I have been married for 9 years and we have a 6 year old son. I have been complaining about the same things for 10 years. He either doesn't want to listen or refuses to recognize what he is doing or not doing and change the behavior. Currently, I'm staying in the relationship so my son has a father. I'm just confused.Answer Question

I dont' know about your situation, but I have always heard that it is not time to end a relationship until you have not feelings left, either of hurt, anger, sadness. When you can imagine yourself leaving him, and you have NO emotion involved, either positive or negative, then it is time.
IMO staying in a relationship just for the kids is more damaging. Kinds know stuff, they are not stupid. Especially at your sons age. I am sure he realized that you guys don't really get along. Sometimes having 2 happy parents, living apart, is better than living in a house with 2 cranky parents who fight all the time.
Do research and learn how to tell your son that you are separating, if you decide to. How you explain divorce is key in how he will handle it. You may want to talk to a child counselor for advice.
