Would you agree or disagree with the following statement:

"If my ex - spouse had been raised better, the marriage might have survived"

*Disclaimer: The question is intentionally vague; by "raised better", I mean whatever that means to you

Agreed. Only his dad was only mentally/emotionally abusive. Exdh took it farther than that.

I'm guessing your ex didn't see the link between their behaviors and his own?

This. Minus the abusive part. But he was just like all the men in his family. He hopped from bed to bed like they all did and no one taught him it wasn't okay.

Nope, he would have cheated no matter how he was raised.

Maybe. His parents made a lot of mistakes with him, but there is just a narcicistic aspect to him that I don't think any amount of parenting would have changed.

Ha!! Ya still till this day he thinks he's perfect. He turned into a 32 yr old partier, his best friend is a 21 yr old boy who my brother has beaten up lol. So far from ever becoming mature esspecially at a level to realize why I left him.

Did you ex ever acknowledge the link in his father's behavior and his own?
