If you are divorced, what would you say is the reason for it?

Sometimes I wonder about the reason for divorces. I know why I would get one and I can't say I haven't thought about it. Is the reason you had then the same reason you would give today?
Do you regret it?

  • I was married 15 years to a ungrateful selfish and unfaithful man. I did everything possible to make things work but it ended up only being one sided. Do I regret it? No. Does he..yes he says he does. Too late!

  • My first husband left me for another woman. I didn't have a say so in the matter. I was 16 and he sent me home and filed for a divorce. My second husband was abusive. I left to save my life and that of my children. I wish he had gotten help but he didn't so I don't regret living in peace. My last husband got addicted to drugs. I gave him a choice. He chose drugs. I did my best to make them all work so I have no regrets about not trying. I did what I had to do to live the peaceful and calm life I want to live. I can't deal with drama and chaos and thought my children deserved better as well. I've since decided marriage isn't for me. I don't regret that decision either. Being alone isn't horrible. Lonely at times, yes but not horrible.

  • I divorced from my first husband because he threw me up against the fridge and then to the couch during a fight. I left him that night and never looked back.

  • I got a divorce from my first husband because he was an alcoholic and was mentally abusive. There was a couple of instances where it turned physical when he would push me down or twist my fingers back. The night he actually raised a fist to hit me, that was when I left. I haven't looked back.

  • Divorcing my husband because of verbal, mental, emotional and physical abuse to me and my son. He is a pathelogical liar too. I can say that I tried so hard to stay in the marriage and work th through it, but just couldn't do it any longer for my benefit as well as my son's.
