Many couples are choosing to stay in an abusive/ toxic marriage for the sake of their children. They even tell themselves that we are sacrificing for the sake of our kids. I'm sorry to say that it's a cop out. Because abuse will damage a child far more than a divorce or break up. If you truly love your child, you must put an end to abuse. Seek help. Get therapy. Or inform family and enlist their help. The long lasting effects of abuse will destroy generations.
