I didn’t want a divorce. In fact, I would have done anything within my power to save my marriage and keep my family intact. Over the years, I’ve taken some grief for that attitude from those who haven’t been in my situation and are rather flippant about how they would react if they had been in my situation.
- My children deserved the best life had to offer, they didn’t deserve the negative impact of a divorce.
- An intact family is the best for all children. My children were too good to be left by their father.
- They deserved to grow up knowing their father would fight to keep their family intact, not walk away from their family. I promised both my children when they were born that I would do what needed to be done to keep them from physical and emotional harm.
