What makes divorce the only option?
No one goes into marriage thinking about how and when they will divorce. In fact, we enter into marriage with the words "Til death do us part" fresh out of our mouths.
So, when is it time to call things quits?
For me there were a few hills to die on that I knew I couldn't get past. Abuse to me or my children was the main one. I thought cheating was another one, but it's different when you are in the situation and you are trying to decide of throwing away a marriage is worth it. Addiction is another one. I knew that I couldn't keep myself or my children around an active addict but I also knew that I would do anything to help if they wanted it.
What would be your hill to die on?
