true divorces are common today, but still lot of us stick to a ridulcous marriage for the sake of children.

its better to seperate .... as children r crushed in the daily fights. but i dont have the courage to divorce.

& telling a small innocent child is v difficult.... my son says \" papa papa\" all day !!!

Nowadays divorce has become very common. People think they can just get married and divorced as and when they feel like it. No one realises what effect this has on the poor children. What about those people who have gotten married four and five times?

I agree that we should think of our children before we dod anything. But if your marriage is truly bad, would you want to continue? How do you think your children feel when they see you fighting constantly?

The worst part is when the parents drag their children into their problems. People think that they will win if they turn their children against the spouse. What they do not realise is that in the end, it is the child who is affected. Forcing him to choose between his parents is extremely traumatic.

I agree that talking to children about divorce is the right step to take. I know people who have tried to hide it from their children but they did not know that the children already knew everything about it. Your children should know about the situation from you. They should not have to find out from someone else.
