I'm curious to know...
Would you stay in an unhappy marriage for your children, or would you get a divorce??

I would not stay in an unhappy marriage for the sake of the children. In the long run, they will pick up the "vibes" and it will affect them.  I have seen it first hand.  I left my first husband when my dd was five.  I do believe either way the children are affected, but better to be in a happy home than an unhappy one.

I absolutely agree with this.

Quoting lovegrandbaby:

I wouldn't stay.  Seeing us in an unhappy marriage would break the kids' hearts.  They've even told me that if I am ever unhappy with their Daddy to just let him go.  2 girls want to stay with me, 2 girls want to stay with their Daddy.  My son would end up going with me.  I really wouldn't want to break them up, but that's what they want.  I hope to not have to split up our family.
