    No..... I divorced my first Husband, life with him was unhappy.... I couldn't be the parent I wanted to be in that state.... Being a single parent was hard but not as hard as living with him.... Life wasn't good for me or my son !!!!!!!!

    Nope i don't if your miserable you children will be too. i was happier when i was alone, i think the children and I did a better job with out my husband being drunk and spilling beer all over the house. and besides we could have people over when we were alone and couldn't when he was there. god i miss those days.

    We do stay together for the kids.

    We separated for a short time a while back and it nearly tore up my kids. I'm not talking about minor things- it made one suicidal, another one physically ill. So. . . . we're together for at least 6 more years- when dd will graduate HS.

    Now, it's not an abusive relationship or anything like that- so we can live together under the same roof.

    Life is too short to stay in an unhealthy relationship just for the kids. Like it was said above - if you are unhappy the kids will see and feel it and it will make life for them unhappy too.

    It took me too many years to figure this one out - now there is no looking back...

    I do believe in staying together for the sake of the kids, if no abuse is in the relationship. As a Christian, I trust God to help me in this department. I have been so angry with my dh, I could have left on the spot! As soon as I asked God to help me love my dh, I was able to forgive him and my heart changed toward him.
