“My wife and I are not happy in our marriage. Should we raise our kids first before separating?”

Relationships aren’t easy! There’s a reason divorce rates are still fairly high and one of the biggest concerns parents have is how divorce or separation will effect their children. This week’s Tips On Teens question touches on this topic. Here it is:

“My wife and I are not happy in our marriage. We argue all the time and I can’t take it much longer. The only reason we haven’t separated yet is because of our kids. We both agreed a few years back that we should raise our kids first before separating but I don’t think either of us will make it. Our youngest is only 9. I’m worried a separation or divorce will scar our kids. What is your professional opinion?”
