I stayed in a marriage where I had felt wrongly treated for two reasons: I loved him and prayed it would get better for me and my children.

When my parents had fought I was always terrified of divorce and in my mind I would never be able to live with either of them.

I assumed my children would feel the same.

Eventually things got so bad that it came to a breaking point. My children said they understood and they were not babies, but they they suffered terribly as a result.

Try as I did there was no way to be amicable from either side.

If I had to do it again I would either have left when they were much smaller or not at all. My children didnt deserve to suffer simply because I was not happy.
