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

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

 If a couple is fighting all the time, abuse, addiction or cheating is involved then I think it's best if parents part ways. I do think parents should always try and work it out but I don't think anyone should be shamed in to leaving.

When my mom decided to leave, my life got better!

It depends on the situation. With mine, the father of my oldest son, my first husband was very abusive towards us when he came back from deployment. It was much better to get both of us out of that situation. As much as I tried to act happy for my son, it didn't work, and his behavior showed that he knew something was up, besides just Daddy being a little too rough with him. I am remarried now, and my son has nothing to do with his birth father. He loves his step father so much, and calls him Daddy, he is 4 and made that decision all on his own. Divorce is sometimes the better option.
