  • I can tell you from experience, the divorce is usually the way to go. I've been through it, and although I'm a bit lonely, I'm no longer afraid I'll get beaten half to death, my kids are safer and happier, and we have a sense of consistency. Kids thrive on that. It's very important. Kids will sense tension and it will affect them in the end. My mom and dad planned to stick it out through their marriage until I (being the youngest child) was 18. It failed on my 16th birthday, and my only reply was "why didn't you end it sooner?"...Just saying...

  • I think I would rather just stay sometimes if you just weather the storm you can find your way back to that happy place that your marriage has fallen out least that's what I believe

  • I would rather try to get help to say I tried every possible thing before I just picked up and left!!! The kids deserve a family and I think so many times ppl just quit without ever really trying to fix the problems of course you have to want to
