I'm just curious. Would you stay with your SO just because you had a baby together?
Post and run! :)

f**k no, :lol:, if I would have stayed with my oldest daughter's dad, he would be dead and I would be in jail for killing him.

no, especially if he treated me the way your BF treats you.

A child deserves parents who are happy, that doesn't mean they have to be together.

Never, especially if it was your boyfriend.

Probably not, but i'd try to make the relationship work with everything i had before leaving.

It depends... it would make me try a lot harder to make the relationship work than I would if we didn't have a baby and if we both still wanted to make it work I would stay and try (except in the case of abuse) but if he wasn't trying and wouldn't try then no.

Yes I would. There have been times in my 7 year relationship that I've realised that as much as I love SO, the only thing holding us together sometimes were our kids and it makes me try harder to get back on track. I would do almost anything to keep my family together. Relationships can't always be perfect.

I'd never compromise myself for an abusive relationship though. Or a cheating one.

Been there, done that. I'd love to say I wouldn't do it again, but there are days I feel like it's exactly what I'm doing.

No, you stay with someone because you love them and care about them. If you stay and hate each other that isn't good for anyone.
I'd rather have a "broken family" but be civil with my ex and have a great parenting plan worked out then live in a hostile house 24/7.
