  • I stayed for a long time for my kids. Until my 4 year old starting telling his dad to "quit yelling at mommy" - I thought it was better for me to stay until that point. Now, I wish I had gotten out much, much sooner!

  • No, I would get out, the kids will get over it eventually. I'm not married, but thought I give my opinion.

  • I certainly am. I've tried to put up with problems in my marriage for over three years and nothing is getting better. Yet I'm still here because of the kids and because I have no income of my own to leave.

  • It took me a year of mental anguish on whether to do it or not and I'm in the middle of a divorce now and I am glad I made this decision for many reasons.
