I remember my kids used to worry. They would ask us when they were little if we would be getting a divorce. Most of their other friends in school had parents who were divorcing and this scared them. I PROMISED our son and daughter that would never happen! Mommy and Daddy love each other VERY much and we're in it for the long haul.
My little son and daughter are now 17 and 14, and mom and dad are still happily married at 20 years. We've had ups & downs, difficult moments and situations at times, but we always stuck by each other and parented our children as a loving team.
I have a good man in my partner and he has the same in me. Best of all...we both realize it.
