Break up for good already!!!

Anonymous

Did you ever know a couple who are so messed up? Fighting, involving their children in their problems, constantly "breaking up" then deciding to try again?

We do, and it's beyond irritating! It's family, and it makes it very uncomfortable knowing they were planning a divorce, but are now joining us for holidays again.

It makes me want to scream "get a divorce already!" every time I see them. It's pathetic.

Yes, dh and I are back and forth now. It is frustrating but I know we can work things out.

Yes, I do.. I wish they would stay broken up because they are toxic to each other, but they stay together.. To each their own. I don't have to be around it so I don't care. If they want to be miserable, so be it.

yes I do, you just have to limit your time with them until everything mellows out.

I really don't give a shit what 2 adults do... until it impacts children. The kids don't know what in the hell is going on and it can be very freightening... stop screwing up your kids!

I don't know your situation. I do know of a couple in my DH's family. It's literally been about 10 years of fighting, breaking up, getting back and lots of drama. Drama even on family vacation. It's to the point, no one wants to hear it anymore.

I had a friend in a relationship like this too. They're still together as well.

Yes! Sad thing is, neither of them want their kids.

I would agree, except that she uses their son to hurt her DH. It's really sad. He's a teen and she's so mean to him.

I don't think there is an "until" with them. It just never ends.

The situation is very toxic for their kids. And he says he wants to work it out because he doesn't want to move his son around. The one child they had together gets it the worst. Sad and pathetic excuse.

Yes the only difference is they don't involve their kids in their problems. The wife says she is just waiting for him to die so she can get his life insurance. She says it's easier then leaving with four kids.
