Every married has its own problems, which is just normal. Constant communication and being open to suggestions is a way to patch things up. But if their differences can no longer be solved by holding on together, then it is best if they separate ways. Because eventually, 2 parents constant bickering and fights is worse than having 2 separate parents who manage to be civil, then eventually friendly to each other.

I agree....if you find out that your problems are impossible to solve perhaps it's better to go in separate ways...the kids will have a tough time, no doubt. But as you said, i doubt that seeing two people that cannot longer be together is better for them...in fact it could be worse, because they might assume that that's the normal relationship between a father and a mother and they might apply that themselves in their future relationships.

If they are friendly to each other,it will give the child a good situation.There are a big problem for raising the children alone by mother or father.

As much as I wish for parents to stay together they should not stay together if they are going to injure the kids mentally. Sometimes it's just better to separate.

Kids will be hurt with parents divorce.That is why so many couple live together withou love.It seems no good way to do that.

it's best that they seperate for the sake of the children instead of the remaining together.the things like constant fighting and yelling only create an unhealthy enviornment of tension and strain and interfere with the mental and social growth of the children and also decreases the love of their children for them.

They can do that.If they are not happy during living together,they should divorce rather than remain together for the sake of the children.An unhappy childhood produces emotionally disturbed adults.A married coupl's first duty,is to think of their children's happiness.
