For the child/children’s sake which is the better situation details inside?
Which is a better situation for the child/children?
Option one: Having a mother and father who are civil with each other, they don’t screech and yell and insult each other but passion and love has gone out of their relationship. They function to run the house but rarely speak to another if it is unnecessary. No caressing, show of affection or anything such as that; they are basically room mates that share the same room and bed.
Option two: Having a mom and pop that are separated or divorced and living apart, who insult or dump on each other to the children about the other. When they come within 50yrd of each other it is full on war, yelling, cussing, insulting, etc. When alone with the kids they are belittling the other parent.
Overall which is the better situation for the child growing up?
disclaimer There will be pleasant times in either situation so think years out not just the day or week. If you can’t imagine which because you have never been in or believe you never will be in a similar situation please just pass the question. It is OK TO GUESS. It is an opinion question; no one would know for sure how a situation like that would turn out because of the variables.
