Have an opinion?
My parents had a long and bitter divorce. On one side, I'm glad that they finalized the split, but on the other: I wish they'd never gotten married in the first place.
I wanted mine to divorce since ages.They just don't work together.
I think it's better to be divorced than miserably married to someone just for the title.
I feel divorce is like a necessary evil at times.I've a friend whose parents fought each day, sometimes threatening one another with knives and cleavers, always screaming at each other to go to hell. For my friend and her younger sister, it really felt like hell.I know how some people hate divorce, that it ruins the family. But to be honest, there is no "family" for my friend. Family means screaming matches and furniture being hurled by her parents at each other all day.In the end, children do want to see their parents happy. And if it takes a divorce to make them happy, then so be it. Sometimes relationships just do not work out, no matter how hard both parties try. Forcing to be with each other just because of the childrens' sake sometimes could hurt the children even more.
I picked "neutral" bc it depends from which way you see it. If you want a divorce you're most likely no longer happy w/ your partner & have already tried to resolve what ever problems you've been having & it hasn't gotten better, so why remain in that relationship? Divorce. If you have kids of course you may think staying is better for them, BUT if you guys are constantly arguining more then having "fun" as a family, then WHY keep your children in that. Divorce. Not everyone will EVER be pleased w/ your decision BUT do what's best for YOU!
I truly believe that if I love someone enough that we can overcome any obstacle. I'd like to marry someone who believes the same... that being said, I know that there are just some connections that are toxic and decay over time. These toxic match ups should be severed for the sake of a sane, healthy life, but I would divorce my wife ONLY if all other options were explored. I would feel a personal failure on my part if the marriage ended. I know it wouldn't be my fault, but I would still think it was. I don't like to give up.
Some people marry without giving it much thought and then end up divorcing because they didn’t give the committments of marriage much thought. There are however people who have given it their everything to make it work and it still didn’t work out. In that case I’m completely supporting the idea of a divorce. Better giving each other a chance at a good life with someone else than making each others life more difficult by staying together when there is no fuel left to make it work.
A lot of people do that
My mom forced herself to remain married to my father until my brother and I were out of high school. In a lot of ways I wish she would have divorced him years earlier and taken me to live with her. daddy dearest was verbally abusive to both her and I. So yeah, it depends on the reason for the divorce.
I hate it worst then death. Oh it makes me angry. I grew up from a divorced family so I got some unresolved issues lol.. but it's still very dumb. You waste years of waiting to figure out if you see a future together if they are the one, then another year planning the wedding all the details to much to put down here, buying the ring and gathering your folks. You finally say "I do" (just to say I won't). You spend so much of your time loving each other for some years, all that effort. And then you give up. !!! If it were me after all that I would fight for my marriage no matter what, but it's more complicated then that right? Or So they say
It's to easy to get one. It is like the couple is not even trying. As soon as a problem comes up they get a divorce instead of fixing and saving the relationship. It's also not good for children seeing their dad getting out of their life (women always get the kids even when they not a great mother)
Women don’t always get the kids. That’s an obvious lie.
Divorce is neccessary sometimes when couples don't have or lose the chemistry and spark they once had. However, I really think that most people just don't filter enough before they get married. I think you should spend at least 3 years with someone before getting married. Relationships that last over 3 years usually have long lasting marriages.
I voted b. Divorcing at the moment - kids involved.The children are a lot happier now we are separated - the atmosphere was toxic in the shared house. They are calmer and more relaxed.Divorce is an awful situation to get in to, but sometimes it's better than the alternative.
I see divorce as the last option. I mean, when people marry they have in mind to spend a life together, so it's sad when things got so bad that people can't fix it.It's still necessary in some cases like infidelity or abusive spouse.
Divorce law is a scam by which the lesser earner is usually enriched for nothing other than being married to someone more successful.
No that only happens when guys marry gold diggers. I’m happy that happens to them.
I work in the legal field. You are misinformed. It happens all the time to men and women who are make more than their spouses, and approximately half of marriages end in divorce. I know men and women who are kicking down $3000 or more per month to an ex in perpetuity.
No I’m not, I know what I’m talking about. Like I said it’s called gold diggers, and people put themselves in that position so I don’t care.
Yes, you are. I am literally in the industry.
I think too many people throw away marriages without much thought these days; but if it works for you, go for it.
It’s usually sad when two people get divorced, but there are definitely exceptions.I voted B.
It's useful for example if a husband was raping his wife or hitting her
I feel if you are open to divorce you shouldn’t get married.
It does if you think about it random girl.
Exactly. So you shouldn’t get married if you are open to it in my opinion. Pretty straight forward.
I have positive feelings about it, though I hope I never have to have one.
It's a no win scenario if children are involved. Hurt feelings, custody battles, and the simply not understanding what's going on is the worst.
I don’t agree but ok
I hate the idea of divorce. It can hurt people and destroy lives.
It's necessary sometimes if the relationship does not do you any good e. g abuse, infidelity etc
It's WAY too easy to get these days.Divorce courts still favour women.Yes, sometimes it's necessary, when a trouble is TRULY having problems.
Women play the system better, it doesn’t “favor” women tho
Divorce sucks, but sometimes it's the best option.
it sucks if the couple already have kids
I'm sorry about your mom
No I don’t care
I hate divorce. Divorce destroys families.
Actually it helps a lot of families
Uh how about removing the toxic relationship out of the family? And the people who are divorcing finally get to be happy?
They can separate if things are going sour til they fix it, but to permanently break up the family unit is horrible.
That’s your opinion.
You see there is this thing call "the rule"... the macro, broad sweeping trend of how thing almost always turn out. Then there is the "exception" to the rule... the rare, micro level aberrations that occur very seldom.The exception doesn't negate the rule. Divorce damages a LOT more than it ever helps. Exceptions do not negate the rule. It doesn't help a "LOT" of families. Any it does are just aberrations and definitely not typical. Way to go straight to a micro example to try and negate the macro fact.
More with the exception and micro.
There’s also a thing called Stfu. Which I wish you would do. It does help a lot of families.
I have neutral feelings about divorce
It is 100% preventable; it is caused by marriage.
