You may get many different answers on this.
IMO, I think when you're in a situation that is not healthy, one where there is abuse (of any kind) of where kids are learning behaviors that are not good and a parent or both parents, prove they aren't going to change etc, I think its best people do NOT stay for the kids. I know that people do what they feel is best at the time. However, I have seen many situations where couples stay together for the kids, and as the kids get older or once they are grown they have far more issues than with kids whose parents might have divorced.
Don't get me wrong, I think if whether people stay or get divorced, its going to effect the kids regardless, I just have seen in my experience it effects them more from people staying together. They learn what goes on in the environment. And then sometimes what the learned carries over into their adulthood.
