Relationships are a lot of work and having children makes it even more so. When you and your partner "take a break" and separate, but then get together again, how likely is it that you'll be able to go the distance this time around? At first I'm assuming all will be well, but then old habits are likely to start creeping back if I'm thinking correctly.
I understand wanting to work things out for the sake of the kids, but then again I feel that it could ultimately cause much more damage than actually splitting. When is enough enough?
When do you know it's time to call it quits? Also, is it usually (I know situations will vary) the man or woman who ends it?

If old habits are likely to start creeping back, then take a preventive measure so that you/him will try to be more self-conscious about it. Try to get the bottom of the problem and think of how to solve it together, there's no such things as a perfect relationship without developing trust/communication/understanding between/of each other. Things might be going okay at first, but soon problems will come up if you don't have a good base. It's like you don't expect a building to be stable if it doesn't have good support1

When you can't think of anything that you like about your spouse and all of your good memories are over shadowed by bad ones.
Don't ever try to work things out just for the kids sake it needs to be for the sake of each other.
