Is the answer always D-I-V-O-R-C-E???

Personally I have very FEW things that i would say are divorce worthy and even then its a case by case sort of thing. Reading here though it seems like everyone is almost waiting for their man to slip up on something stupid just to say divorce. I was married once and it didn't go so great but it seems like people go through husbands like they do jobs. What would you say is and is not a divorce issue.

  • Divorce is not always the answer, but when you are unhappy in a relationship for whatever reason, either you work it out or split.

  • If he cheated on me or was mentaly or physacly abusive to me or our child. Other then that work it out!

  • Physical/sexual abuse are pretty much the only grounds for divorce IMO.

  • Adultery, abuse, those would be about it. Abuse is pretty broad, emotional, physical, sexual, all that. Other problems? We work those out.

  • Abuse or cheating is the only way I would leave, most problems can be worked out if both people are willing but sometimes one of the people is not willing to work on it.

  • I go by the three A's- Abuse, Adultery, and Addiction. My husband and I have had our shares of ups and downs. There have been a few times, I just want to call it quits but we stick through it and somehow we make it through.

  • Abuse and cheating are the only reason I would ever say divorce.

    Answer by dancinintherain at 8:15 PM on Oct. 28, 2010

  • I wouldn't stay with someone who cheated on me, mentally or physically abused my children or myself. Of course, there are other reasons people get divorces that are just as valid. I took my vows and meant them but you better believe I'm not so old fashioned that I wouldn't leave if I felt like I was living in a miserable hell, just so I could say I didn't walk away! People deserve to be happy and to raise children in a happy environment, if your marriage isn't one, you either need to fix it or walk away.

  • cheating or abuse would be my deal breaker most likely

    Answer by meagan678 at 8:25 PM on Oct. 28, 2010

  • abuse, addiction. Anything else we can work out. We said from the beginning divorce is not an option
