Have you ever stayed with anyone out of guilt or obligation?

Sometimes we stay with someone out of love and sometimes it is because of guilt or obligation. Have you ever stayed with someone you did not love?

I stayed with my ex husband a long time after I stopped loving him. It was because I felt obligated to since we had two children together. I realized I didn't want my daughters to grow up thinking that they deserved to settle and not be happy and decided that it was best for all of us to go our separate ways. I'm really glad I made that decision, but after sticking with him for at least two years while I didn't feel love toward him, it was time.

Hmm.. yes... kind of.

I still loved him, but I wasn't happy. I stayed with him for a little while because I was afraid that he would hurt himself if I left.

I was put in a position many years ago where I felt obligated to be with someone I loved but wasn't in love with. In the end he was hurt, I was hurt, and a third party was hurt whom was the cause of all of it. I haven't seen the other man in years nor have we talked. I still love him but he was in love with me and wouldn't take no as an answer. He broke my trust and almost my marriage.

Yes. I stayed, and our lives changed. I fell in love with him again.

Definitely! My first husband--he was my daughter's father and I really did not want to hurt or disillusion my child...in the end, she was already disillusioned by the indifference, fighting and ignoring my ex and I did to each other far more than if I would have just left!! (She talked to me about it a few months ago.)

Yes, my ex-husband. He held me emotionally hostage and used my empathy to train me to place his feelings before my own, so that I thought suicide was the only way to get out of being with him so I wouldn't have to see him being hurt if I left him.

Thank God I woke up while I was standing on the bridge. Decided losing my life to spare his feelings was ridiculous.
