Reason for staying in marriage…

Many times the divorce rate is lower when the wife stays at home because she can’t support herself and her children financially on her own.  She is trapped in the marriage for monetary reasons.  I have personally known stay-at-home moms who stay in a marriage they are unhappy with because they can’t afford to leave.

Kids. Anyone can find a couch to crash on.

Oh, so when you’re unhappy with you’re marriage the only solution is to leave.

That has to be the most “Let them eat cake” answer I’ve seen on here yet. Do you have the slightest idea what you’re talking about? Okay, Toadman, My friend needs to get herself and her three kids out of her abusive marriage. Can they crash on your couch? Also, since she doesn’t work, it’ll need to be for as long as it takes her to find a childcare solution, get a full time job, find an apartment that will rent to her with less than six months employment history (but it has to be in a safe place; remember the kids), and earn her first month’s paycheck. Two months, I’m guessing, If she’s a little lucky. Of course, she has no money and no income, so while she’s there, do you think you could feed her and the kids? Hopefully no other expenses will come up among the four of them in that time…

Well same for men.. If Men leave the women she takes all the money. If women want to be equal to men in the work place and at home then make them pay spousal support. Never happen.
