Staying together because of the children

Follow Us

Are you confused as to whether you should stay or leave your unhappy marriage?  You are not alone; this may be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever have to make.

So many couples stay together in an unhappy marriage because they believe it is in the best interests of their children.  They believe that children are happy in an intact family regardless of the marital conflict going on around them.  

Statistics show that children do better when their parents get divorced compared to living with parents in a constant state of conflict, hostility and uncertainty.  Children need a stable environment where everyone can communicate with each other.

Before determining if you should stay or leave your unhappy marriage, it is important to list the pro’s and con’s for each scenario. Marriage or divorce is a life-long decision that should not be taken lightly or acted upon due to emotions.  If you are considering divorce and don’t know what to do, consult with an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who can listen to your issues, and advise you on what’s best for you and your family at this very stressful time in your life.
