This article is a reflection of being a selfish woman. Anyone can get a divorce and take the easy road. We all can do it by ourselves men included but that’s not the design for marriage. Seek Christ

Meh, debatable. If the father isn't a good person, or never even wanted responsibility for the child (use protection folks!) then a divorce isn't that bad for a child. It goes vice versa too. But we have to remember that a child needs BOTH parents, so sooner or later, it will find a role model to fill those missing gaps.

I totally agree, this is a selfish women! This is evident as the article gives little consideration to the emotional impact on her daughter and husband. It’s all about her !

In the article you mention “We can be with our child and not be worried about every single penny. Of course, this is only if you have a good husband”. Is there any wonder your marriage failed if this is your perception of a “good husband”.

Lol, get over your one-sided, closed-minded viewpoints! “...Take the easy road...,” “...”little consideration to the emotional impact on her daughter?”

Huh. So I suppose, in your expert opinions, the clearly superior alternative (i.e. the one which a person with an outstanding emotional intelligence quotient, such as yourselves, would have chosen,) would have been to stay together, having her grow up in a home with two admittedly depressed, unhappy parents, having this be her view of what a “marriage” is? Of what it looks like when two people “love” one another? Yes... I can clearly see how that would have been a much healthier decision for her, than the two complete, happy, healthy parents she has now.

Alas, ignorance is bliss...as long as you pretend it is. Get off your high horses, and go look in a mirror. Perhaps you could start by being honest with yourselves. If you find that too painful, at least have it in you not to take out your own frustrations, deflecting onto others.

I can relate to the woman who wrote this article. All our married life it has been me who has had to conform to my husbands wishes, be it in regard to children, money, work and my own appearance. Always responsible for meals, always having to be on duty even when I was ill. Life was so much easier and everybody so relaxed on the occasions he went away for his job. Marriage is not all it's supposed to be, quite often. And now, my reward for not bailing out is that I am now my husband's carer, as he has multiple medical issues, as well as increasing dementia. Now in a worse trap than ever, unable to have any social life or get away for any length of time. My children and I would have been so much better off had I taken a different course, but of course that would have been selfish, wouldn't it?
