Do you think it's a good idea for a woman to file for divorce because the women on Cafemom told her to?

It just seems like most of the time people don't have the whole story...

  • If someone files for divorce because women on CM told her to...she probably isn't mature enough to be married in the first place. Gathering advice or other points of view to help in your decision making is an entirely different story.

  • sure, why else would you file for divorce!?!?

    But seriously, I have to laugh at some of the questions people ask on here, sure you can get ideas and advice but it's up to you to make the final desicion- you can only take cafemom so seriously.

  • hopefully she would take it as advice and not as a regulation to live by. obviously someone would have to want to file for divorce in the first place. that's an awful big step to take for just listening to someone else. even churches can't get people off of drugs just by telling them to.

  • I think if the mom files for divorce after it was suggested by friends online, then she was already headed in that direction! And her friedns advice only boosted her resolve.

  • i often find a number of moms advising to save the marriage. i know a lot of women advise otherwise, but it seems to me a woman knows what is in her heart, and i would hope that she is asking here for a little support for what she knows she has to do. (divorce or work hard to save it)

  • Well, of course not. I would hope that someone wouldn't do that on the recommendation of online friends.

  • Wow, I was just in a post like this last week.
    It did seem like she made up her mind just based on the opinions she was getting from the post. But at the same time ... sometimes victims of emotional abuse need suppport, to be reminded that thay don't deserve to be treated badly.
    I don't think it would a good idea to file for divorce just because a certain person, or a bunch of people told you to. Divorce is a major choice and it should only be considered in very extreme situations and with lots of prayer and counsel.

  • I always give the counseling advice but in the end it is up to her and only her.

  • No, that would be silly.

    Answer by momjoy1027 at 5:30 PM on Jun. 27, 2010

  • Ha, it's the only reason I'd file! (a joke)
    I think they wanted to file and just used the advice they got on here to help them feel better about their choice. They would have done it either way.
