My DD just turned one year old. DH and I have been having a very rough time (since before DD was born, but the dynamics of raising a child have certainly put an even greater strain on our relationship) and I contemplate divorce almost daily. Without going into too much detail about our relationship, etc...what I would really like to know is if those of you who are divorced with 2 children had already been contemplating splitting up before DC #2.
I get really sad when I think about my DD not having a brother or sister and sometimes I wonder if I should get pregnant again even though our marriage is not great and I really can not imagine living my whole life with this person. On the other hand, common sense tells me that I shouldn't have another child with a man I am not sure I even love anymore. It doesn't help that I'm heading into the latter part of my thirties with biological clock ticking, etc.
I went to visit a divorce attorney a few months back and she told me divorces with one child are markedly easier than with multiple children. Have you all found this to be true?
I worry about my DD being the only child of likely-to-be divorced parents...I can't help but think life would be so much better for her if she could share her experiences with a sibling.
I would be grateful for any insight and/or shared experiences from you wise mamas out there.
