What do you feel about divorce?

what ever you answer is tell me why you gave the answere you gave.

I think divorce is unfortunate and although I advocate counselling and couples/family therapy to perhaps avoid divorce, sometimes divorce really is the best answer. If one partner is not willing to make the necessary accomodations or is perhaps abusive and unwilling to admit this and change, the spouse (as well as any children) should not suffer just to "preserve the marriage". At that point, I don't even know if could be considered a marriage beyond the "title". Regardless of the outcome, the people involved (children and adults alike) should seek help in adjusting to pre and post divorce proceedings. Children are particularly vulnerable, and they need to know that it is not their fault, and that both parents still love them and are there to care for and parent them. (This, of course, is dependant upon the stability and suitability of both parents to be involved in a child's life.)
