No matter what age children are it is hard for them when their parents divorce. Even if they are 50 years old. But if you and your husband are already thinking of getting a divorce then things must be pretty tough right now. Just be sure that when you do decide to get a divorce just let them know that it is not their fault.


Any age is appropriate, as long as you get out of there as soon as you possibly can.

A bit more:

If your husband is emotionally abusive to the kids or to you, you need to get out now. To remain in a marriage and subject the children to any form of abuse will cause far, far more damage to them from coming from a broken home. Actually, in this particular situation, I would consider it a "broken home" - I would consider it mending their home life.

Growing up with an abusive parent (verbally, emotionally, physically,etc.) can cause children many problems, both while young and after they are grown. It can result in them having very poor self-esteem, deep seated anger and resentment, etc., and it can also result in them possibly being emotionally abusive to their own children one day.

So please, for yourself and your children, leave your husband now. The longer you stay, the more damage he can cause to all of you.

Is it normal for a child of a verbally abusive father to grow up with the mentality of Honesty Is Not Always If Ever The Best Policy when dealing with authority figures other than his abusive father?

Yes, it is normal with some children who grow up with a verbally abusive father to think that honesty is not always if ever the best police when dealing with authority figures other than his own father because a verbally abusive father has life twisted around in his own mind. A child that is either verbally or physically abused by their father will most likely try to please that father more so than the father. However, there are other children who grow up with verbally abusive fathers who make an extreme effort to be the opposite of their father and when those grown children have children of their own they make sure their children will not have to go through the same thing they went through.

You are 6 months pregnant with your abusive boyfriend's twin boys these will be your first children together you both have no outside children should you stay with him?

Not if he is abusive...physically, mentally, or emotionally. Those boys will eventually get the same treatment from him as you do, he can be the father...but that doesn't mean you can't raise them without him. Get out of that relationship before you or your unborn children are hurt. And if you can't see yourself without least try. It never hurts to try, especially if he is already hurting you.

Can a father lose custody of his children if there is proof that he has a girlfriend before his divorce is final?

It's not likely, as custodial and visitation issues are based upon the welfare of the child or children. If the child or children are not placed in a dangerous, neglectful or abusive situation or are emotionally traumatized due to presence of another person, then it will not be relevant to the court. Any of the noted problems would be based on the evaluation of a trained professional (psychologist, social worker, medical doctor,etc.) not on the testimony of the other parent or other involved persons.

There is no current law prohibiting you from living with a man who is not the father of your children.
