 What are valid grounds for divorcein your opinion? What would be enough for you to call it quits? (whether you are married, single, or thinking about it -or been there done that!)

^^^im with her. If s/he has cheated, you reconciled and they do it again then there is no 'let's try again'. Also if a hand is raised in anger I'm out the door.

My parents were married for close to 21 years when they divorced. My mom cheated once, my dad supposedly cheated too. It was then that I found out my dad had never intended on marrying my mom until she became pregnant with me. Even then he refused to leave bc he didn't want to leave me or some crap like that.

If you cheat or break trust too many times your butt should be out the door.

According to my Mom..and I quote her only bc I honestly havent thought about divorce myself (only been married 8 mths) the 3 A's are the ONLY reason for divorce

Abuse, Adultery or Alcoholism

well, if you're just not happy with the person I guess. I mean, I totally understand the whole "keeping it together for the kids" but is that really fair to them? or you? in my opinion, a kid these days would be 200% more understanding and appreciative of 2 happy homes then having to deal with 1 unhappy home..  if you're just not in love with the person the way you use to be, don't kid yourself or your Significant other, cuz you can't pretend forever :[

I'll agree with 2 of the A's.. I see alcoholism as a disease and for "sickness and health"  I guess I would do my best to try to  help them, but if they aren't willing to sober up I might be done, depends on how bad the problem is.
