That's even harder on the kids when parents stay together, as kids figure things pretty quickly.

Staying married doesn't mean you're good coparents any more than splitting up means you are bad ones. My oldest daughter's father and I have been divorced over a decade and we coparent very well together. Better than my son's father and I did when we were married.

I'm a child of divorced parents. The best thing they did for us was get divorced. My mother was a much better person once she left my dad. What does no longer have interest mean? If it is just sexual interest but everything else is fine then you might want to look into therapy first.

Other people's opinions of what a couple should or shouldn't do (in-laws, friends, cultural imperatives) aggravate and extremely private and intimate problem. The question of how you feel; or what you want to do; is utterly irrelevant. The courts and the consequences of your actions will dictate you're outcome, and neither will care about either of you or the welfare of your children.

Since the question was not about an abusive relationship, stay together. Learn what commitment means and focus on the relationship. If you do that, love reconnects and rebuilds, love grows over time, long past the glow of first attraction.

Staying together in a toxic relationship and having a miserable life 24 hours a day simply mean there is no reason to stay together child or not. In our state, the minor child will go with mom unless a compelling set of circumstances exist. If anything you do is wrong and anything you don't do is wrong as well, Such a life together is not worth the mental agony. It's time to move on.
