Even though I am a strong advocate for marriage I feel that its totally unacceptable to stay any marriage or relationship just for the sake of the children. Time is something that none of us have for long and the longer one spends in a wasted marriage or relationship is the more bitter or unhappy they will become. After time you or your spouse may start cheating, followed by becoming abusive and loosing concentration while raising the children or while doing ones job. Staying in these types of marriages or relationships can cause some serious harm to their mental or physical health and can even cause some to loose their jobs. For those who choose to stay in these type of relationships, I have a warning, stay at your own risk! You are not only risking your own health or life but also effecting the lives of your children. Why? Because even children these days, are smart enough to know when there is a problem with their mother, father or some man or woman that they don't care for! Sometimes a parents unhappiness, stress or misery rubs off on the children and what their parents are feeling many times rubs off on them.
I and the staff at Q&A With Chuck, highly recommend that you leave or find a way to get out of this very dangerous situation as soon as possible! No financial, material, lust or even for the children, should outweigh a persons health, life, sanity or happiness. For those who would may argue that these things, are enough to stay in a relationship or marriage. I would say to them, that children adjust, life is precious and we all live only once. Most people who have live long happy lives, have less stress in them and most of them always live their lives to the fullest. There should be a time in every man or woman's life, where a line should be drawn. Everyone must choose to be happy or unhappy and the choice is only theirs to make. I always have drawn my line to my happiness, my mental or physical health and well being. I wouldn't never stay at any job or be in any type of relationship, if I wasn't happy! Why? Because my time is precious! The old saying is the longer you stay in a bad relationship, marriage or stressful job the harder it will be for you to let go. The question is, where do you draw your line? When is Enough really Enough or when will you finally have had Enough courage, guts, will or desire to finally let go? Write in, then express your thoughts or opinions on the subject.
Have a blessed day,
