What would you do?

If you are unhappy in your marriage and know that you want to leave but don't have the $$ too would you stay until you had the means to support yourself and your children? Would you leave anyways?

  • No, as long as my husband wasn't abusive to me or the kids. I think work is needed to make a marriage work.

  • This is a very hard decision. If he is violent or you are afraid of him? if that is the case I would just leave now, if you are just not happy for other reason but you can stay without fearing for your life or your kids well being I would try to stay and save some money. But that is just my opinion without having much information. Good luck and I hope you can be happy soon

  • I'd leave after I had a legal separation where I could establish that my husband would pay child support and alimony so that I could get myself on my feet.....

  • No one can really answer that question for you honey. You have to make the decision for yourself and your children. I understand what it is like to be in a bad marriage and want to go. But not be able to money wise. I chose to stay, which was a mistake!!! and it only made it worse when i did go. I wish you strength and courage momma.

  • Stay until you have a way to support yourself....unless there is abuse then you can go to a shelter and they can help you back on your feet
