Staying Together for the Kids

There are many reasons that couples put off getting a divorce. The most common thing that I hear from clients is that they are staying together for the good of the children. There has been a lot of research concerning the positive and negative affects on children when a couple, who otherwise would get divorced, stay together because they believe its what is best for their children. Sometimes children living in a house with bickering parents can end up with emotional issues far beyond those that they would have had if their parents had decided to divorce. However, deciding to end a marriage is a decision that should not be taken lightly and the fact that there are couples who have discussed their issues and are trying to do the right thing by their children is never a bad thing. Dr. Ruth A. Peters, Ph.D. is a contributor on the TODAY Show and recently wrote an article about the pros and cons regarding staying together for the children.
