My whole life has been surrounded by unhappy marriages that have stayed together for the kids or money or what not and i just don't think that's right either but neither is getting married on the fly just because you can get divorced easily. so what do you think the circumstance woudl have to be for you to get a divorce?

My whole life has been surrounded by people divorcing as well but you should try and turn this in to a positive thing for yourself. At least you know for sure what kind of marriage you don't want to have. I think i am like you and will put alot of thought into it before marrying someone but I think I would probably getting married for life, the person I was marrying would have to be my best friend and I wouldn't want to have one of those fiesty relationships cos they just aren't good for the kids. I would love to say that I would never file for divorce but I do not think I would keep myself in an unhappy marriage due to it. I don't think youc an really form a true opinion til you are in a marriage yourself.

One is cheating. I cant really forgive my husband to cheat on me and once is enough, I wont tolerate him. Thats the one of the circumstances i will ge a divorce. And also physical and mental and emotional abuse.

I personally would not stay in an unhappy marrage for any reason, people say they stay for the kids, but it only hurts them more in the long run. I am willing to work to make my marrage work, but there are 2 things there is no recovering from in my book: cheating and Abuse.

thanks for the response. My parents stayed together (unhappily) "for the kids" and i agree, it only hurts the kids because, like me, i've never seen a Happy marriage, so its been hard for me to find a good relationship partly because of the things the i learned in childhood.
