This is a question I have attempted to address head on in several past posts. But now that I am blogging here less frequently and spending all of my blogging energy on Beauty and the Biker, I wanted to leave a post up for a while that would spark comments and hopefully a vibrant discussion.
So, please chime in with your opinion:
Which is worse?
Being unhappily married or being a single mother?
For you? And finally, for the kids?
My answer – as you all may know – is that it is far easier to be a single mother than to be unhappily married. But, everything is relative. I had an emotionally abusive ex-husband who contributed nothing into the relationship. I also only had one child. From where I was sitting, being away from him was the only viable option toward ever finding happiness. I just knew it would never work between us.
There have been studies which have found that children raised in happy homes are happier, regardless of if those homes are one parent or two parent households.
What about you? What are your thoughts on this?
