Someone from Nashville posted a whisper, which reads "When I was single, I'd tell people that if I was unhappy in a marriage, I'd just leave. Now that I'm unhappily married, for some reason it's too hard for me to just leave. "
I have lots of friends in unhappy marriages for the sake of "keeping their family together" You can be married a long time but an unhappy marriage is not a successful marriage. It just confuses your children about what they should expect out of their own relationships someday. What is worse than your unhappy marriage? Watching your child suffer through what they were taught by watching you.
