Don't really know just where to post this since the boards are many and seem to address similar issues, but:
Having recently closed out a unhappy marriage of over twenty years which ended with terminal illness,
it's my opinion that if any people are maintaining their marriage with a cheating spouse simply to give the appearance to their children of being in a healthy relationship, you are only fooling yourself.
If one or both spouses are only going through the motions, it is not working. All you are doing is
creating expectations for your children of any relationship they may have of just being the same, for them.
Just an illusion.
If one of you isn't happy, there is no way the other one will be,either.
