For the children.: now I am afraid I taught them to put up with to much : that I may have taught them , the children that verbal abuse is okay.

Religious reasons: God doesn't like divorce. I took a vow seriously. Reality... God doesn't expect you to endure mistreatment .

Family reasons: I did not want to be a failure. I did not want to listen to my mother say .." I told you so ".:(

Financial reasons :....... Boy was I naive on this one. My XH had no common sense with. $ . Always blamed me for not having any. $ . But it was nothing for him to charge lots of $ on credit cards then wonder why we had no $.
I am better off $ wise than I was .

Fear of being alone.. Reality. I like my own company. It's peaceful. . It's nice not to have the verbal abuse & drama.


Just some things to ponder. I'm sure many of you could have your own list .
