You staying home was a joint decision... meaning he has responsibility for it as well.
I think it was because I felt so awful about the whole thing. I didn't want to have a nasty divorce, which would effect the kids a lot more. I had a lot of guilt for a long time because in reality, I destroyed my family because I couldn't live with how taken for granted I felt. Plus I have this fear of confrontation which allows me to allow others to bully me into whatever it is they want. I'm working on that now though, I've had enough of it lol.
Basically it boils down to me being too weak to stand up for myself, which has been my problem from the day I started school as a little kid.
