Ok, this is a pretty heavy question. I have been in a very negative marriage since the beginning but have put my need for respect and honesty aside to stay married and raise children. My kids are young but I think that I may be not doing them any favors by staying in a bad relationship. We have done the counselling thing a few times and it hasn't worked. Has anyone been there before out there? Do you just stay until the kids are older and more independent? Or do you end the relationship and deprive the kids of having their dad fulltime?
