Can divorce actually be good for your kids?

Posted by   + Show Post

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

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

My parents were miserable towards the end of their marriage and my mom had moved into our sun room put up a curtain and made it a bedroom. I was horrified and to embarrassed to have friends over except a very few who knew what was really going on.

When my mom would start spending weekends with her boyfriend and they were both happier when she wasn't home I started praying they'd just divorce already. When they finally did it was such a huge relief there was mood was so much lighter in both their houses.

I firmly believe its better for a child to see two happy parents apart then to live with two miserable parents in the same house and grow up thinking that's normal and they should settle for that.

I am all for trying to work out your problems first, but when divorce becomes inevitable, staying together for the kids becomes more of a burden for them then a blessing.

Quoting KristenFowles:

 YIKES, I didn't notice my typo..


I'll have to go back and edit that..

Quoting natural_s:


Totally agree with everything you said.

Quoting KristenFowles:

 If you're screaming and fighting in front of your kids all the time.. Yeah, divorce is far better for them.

Even if you don't scream and fight directly in front of them, they can sense the discomfort in the air.  There definitely hits a point were the pain of divorce isn't as strong as the pain of an unhappy home.

Good is probably the wrong word, but I suppose  it can be the lesser of two evils in certain instances.
