The major reason humans in bad marriages don’t divorce is that their financial stability will be ruined. There are 9 more reasons.
The offspring would suffer.
I would feel guilty leaving my offspring.
I don’t want to leave my house.
I’m too old to walk away now.
I’m scared to be on my own.
I’m worried about being lonely.
I’m hoping things will improve.
If you are hoping things will improve then make it a potential future reality by taking ACTION and really trying TO DO SOMETHING NEW to improve the situation. Improve your relationship skills and job skills by using the internet to gain new useful knowledge about how to solve your family problems. My two evergreen books LOVEALL and HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY may also help the situation and realistically improve your family life. If you are having parenting problems then you and your spouse should read my evergreen book MODERN PARENTING.
I might regret it.
I’m not sure I have the courage to divorce.
If you are constantly arguing about finances or bad spending habits, nagging, complaining, and blaming each other for family difficulties and almost hate each other then staying married for the sake of the offspring is not a good idea. An ongoing addiction to shopping, alcohol, drugs, gambling, or pornography is also a good enough reason to divorce. The offspring will have a very bad opinion of married life with such bad role models as parents and will probably grow up and have the same family or relationship problems in their marriages.
On the other hand if you are not constantly arguing and are just unhappy with poor finances, your boring sex life, or bored in the relationship but both of you love and nurture your offspring then you should stay married for the sake of the offspring because they will feel loved by both parents and an occasional intense argument is not a big enough reason for divorcing.
