    I left him but we might get back together for the reasons above.  Its very confusing and scarey to go through this.  I don't want to be back with him, but I do love him and maybe he will change.  Plus it is so nice to not have to worry so much about how I'm going to pay the rent and buy food.

    I have been with my hubby for 24 years.  We got married super young and had kids right away!  I loved him, but had my doubts back then if the was the right one for me.  I honestly tried to make it work.  But things have really gone downhill over the past 10 years and I'm not so sure if we will last forever.  I mainly stayed for the sake of our kids, money, and because I have had some mental health issues (anxiety, depression) that have been pretty bad at times!!  I still love him somewhat, but my feelings aren't as strong because he hasn't been treating me right for the past couple of years.  Now that our kids are grown, I am really considering parting ways once I get myself established with work, so that I can stand on my own two feet.  What are your reasons?

    I stayed because, mistakenly I believed child from 2 parent homes fared better.

    Then I realized the fighting was doing more damage than than the possible good of staying together.

    Truth be told, EX-, I and the kids are much happier since the divorce.

    a,b & d.

    If and when I am able to financially, I'll overcome the other two. My kids are starting to realize that somethings not right & that breaks my heart. We're all much happier when he's not here.
