Do you think divorce can actually be good for your kids? 

Do you think couples should avoid divorce when they have young kids?

I think if the couple is fighting all the time and it's affecting their kids, then yes, it's best. But if they are able to hide it and be happy for their kids or work it out, then being in a stable household is best.

I agree

Quoting mydarlingsofia:

I think if parents are better parents apart/away from each other then yes divorce is better for kids.  Seeing parents fight and mistreat each other, being miserable but staying married is not good for kids at all.

Co-parenting even when divorced can lead to happy emotionally healthy kids

I think it was in my situation. I didn't want DD going through all the arguing and me being unhappy all the time

when i was growing up my parents faught non stop my home life was hell. I remember asking my dad if he can divorce my mom for my christmas present. They are still together to this day and still fight. I personally think that if parents cant get along then yes they should get divorced. It is in my opion and experence worse for a child to grow up in a home with fighting all the time.

Personally it was better for my kids that me & the EX got divorced ..... I saw the kids do a major Exhale when the EX moved out and we are go much happier family with two households.... Because both mom & dad are a lot happier people without all the tension . JMO

Yes, it can be. A child has a better chance at life hve 2 hapy homes, rather then one that is full of hostility and resentment.

I think it depends on the situation. If their abuse going on then yes, its way better for the children.

Yes, it can be good if the relationship is abusive... Including verbally.
