I understand, convenience, going through the motions, that's where I'm at in my relationship as well.
I have taken a step back at my marriage and thought, "what's my daughter learning about relationships by observing us?" That question to myself was the reason that I started instigating arguments with my husband, I did not want her to see her mom as a doormat and thus become one later in life. I know that my choice is not right and I'm still not setting a good example for her.
On the flip side, what does a child learn from a loveless relationship?I would suspect that they end up like me, having never observed love between my parents and now I'm incapable of showing love in my marriage and now have problems of my own.
I guess what I'm saying with my rambling is that if you're staying in it for the kids then really consider what you are teaching your kids by the example you're setting for them in your marriage.
