What’s causing you to stay together?


Perhaps your child is what’s keeping you together with your partner. Maybe you just want to keep the family atmosphere positive so that your child doesn’t suffer, or perhaps you just want to keep your partner happy in hopes that you can mend your deteriorating relationship. While these are commendable things, it’s also important to worry about your own health as well. It doesn’t matter how difficult it might be to let your partner know or to tell your children—they’ll have to deal with it eventually.

Either way, it’s important to give yourself some space and see your relationship with a different pair of eyes to truly understand what’s going on.
