I have a friend her husband left her and the child. He came back because he missed the child.

It might but why would you want to be with someone that doesn't want to be with you?!? My parents seperated when I was 20 years old. I think that was more shocking than if I would've grown up that way. And if you are in an unhappy relationship the kids will realize and have issues. IMO

 At this point I think DH hates me...He has to! He is soo hard on me and I try and try and try to make him happy but he's not happy with me...but I have his 4 month old daughter. So he won't walk away.

No.

Eta: I also don't know why you would want to stay with someone who didn't love you. Both people deserve to have love and support, and i think that a child can usually sense tension between parents. So if they grow up in a household where the parents are not getting along and are just together for the child, they'll think its normal. And IMHO, that's doing them a disservice and setting them up to have not great relationships.

no i don't think it will and people that have children for that reason will be just bringing them into a sad messed up home life.

Yep.  My DH married his ex for the kid and for the kid only.  He stuck it out as long as he could.  And then couldn't stand it anymore. 

Lots of men do.  They feel they will have no other way to see the kids, since women can and do use the kids.

Not always....but it can both ways...some women stay married just for their kids
