Have you ever been on the brink of leaving your spouse but because you thought of your kids growing up without both parents and the hurt it would cause them you stayed? Do your kids give you strength to carry on and not give up on your spouse at times? Not because you don't love your spouse but because sometimes trials in a marriage/relationship can be too much to handle and sometimes you just wanna give up. Is this true for you?

For those without children, if you had children and were put in this situation, would you be more inclined to make things work with your spouse for the sake of your kids?

I did this with my first marriage--but it only put off the inevitable for two years. We divorced and both my daughter and I were happier people. I have also had these moments in my current relationship but instead of staying for my daughter's sake I have stayed for my stepson's sake. I admit this time I am glad we have worked through our issues and hope we continue to do so!

My relationship was on the brink right after we had our son. I choose to stick it out because I love my husband and ONLY because I love my husband. As a child who watched parents stay together "for the kids," I can assure you it was not fun for me. If my husband and I couldn't make it work, we would end it and do our best to stay on good terms for our child. We wouldn't force a bad relationship on our son.

What a coincidence I was just thinking earlier today about this. My husband came to me one day and said, I want a divorce. Ironically, it was the same day I had found out I was pregnant. Rather than say anything, I agreed to the divorce then and signed the papers immediately. I wasn't sure if I would terminate the pregnancy, etc. The doctor ended up calling the house and accidentally revealed to him about the pregnancy and he decided he wanted to give us a second chance. However, I had gone through a miscarriage after signing the papers. So, even though I never had children with him, in a way it did and would have made him stay because of the kids. I'm glad that he's not with me solely for the kid though. I guess, life works itself out.

No, but because of the kids, i do take a step back and evaluate our relationship downs before i make any decisions. I do this because i know what a divorce can do to a child, and i want to make sure that we have considered all options before we make any life changing decisions.

No.

I spent my childhood wishing my parents would split. They were miserable and in turn, everybody in the house was miserable.
