Considering Separation

Dear Mothers,

I am struggling in my relationship with my daughter’s father (my husband) and considering separating and perhaps heading toward divorce. I would like to hear from any of you who have separated or divorced about how you told your children about the struggles and how you decided what was most re-emergent for you and your children.

If you ended up divorced, how did you help your children through that? What did you notice about the impacts on them as compared to the impacts you saw while you were still married but in conflict, unhappy, not modeling close, loving, connected partnership?

How did you battle the sexism and male domination in your marriage? What determined whether you stayed or left?

Do you have any thoughts on what is appropriate to tell children at different ages?

Thanks so much.
