Some children can be seriously influenced by their parents' divorce. How severe they are affected depends on many things, ranging from their age to the manner in which the parents divorce each other.
However, the BEST thing you can do for your children is to NOT have your divorce. You can stop your divorce no matter the situation.
Some children are affected badly because they lose faith in relationships. They may feel that marriage is not worth the risk, as they do not want to end up unhappily. Others have major commitment issues. Some other children do not seem to be affected by it either, but end up having smaller versions of these same issues.
All in all, divorce affects all children in one way or another.
So how do we help this situation?
Don't get a divorce. It may seem like it's impossible to stop, but tons of couples get back together and stop divorces every single day.
Even if one person cheated, or if you argue all the time, it's really possible to stop your divorce. Do it for your children. Simply because children, affected by divorce, can grow up not being as faithful in the act of marriage.
How to Stop Your Divorce
One of the keys to stopping your divorce is identifying the problem. Why is the divorce happening? If you answer with "we argue a lot," or "there's no love left," or "he/she cheated," then you have not found the right problem.
Most people never find out what really caused their divorce, but the people that DO find out end up SOLVING IT. And you can too.
