I`m not saying staying for the kids is right, I`m just saying truth should be outed on this subject.
Kids NEVER take their parents splitting without some serious long lasting emotional turmoil
I`ll add a caveat to this eariel post of mine.
The experiences I`ve been involved with concerning children of divorce were all personal and familial.
However, as That_Girl has said they also involved fatherly abandonment.
She is undoubtedly right that this is a more serious harm than the actual divorce itself and may be coloring my view due to personal involvement.
