When do you know it is time to leave a relationship?

How did you know that it was truly time to leave your Significant other, the father of your child for good? I’m really struggling with the right answer and want only what’s best for my one year old son.

When you start questioning it !! Find out your reason why you feel you want to leave. And if it’s want you feel is best , sometimes it’s better for children having both parents apart than together

Some relationships hit rough patches and you may not be as excited or happy to be together. My husband and I have been together for 10 years and have hit a couple but we always pull out of it and we both still love each other and want to make it work when we get into those funks. If you love him but are not IN love with him then I would say that’s when it is time to walk away. It’s not fair to him or you if you’re just going through the motions. And i know you want what’s best for your baby but if the parents aren’t happy they generally aren’t either.

I was 3years in a relationship with the father of my son, before I got pregnant. When I had my son I started living with him under one roof and that is when it hit me. He was not a good father, he did not help with anythimg, didn’t buy anything, he started to abuse me before my son. My son was then 10 months old.
I did not want my son to become someone like him or grow up is such a territory.
If you start questioning it, then it is time to leave… Go with your gut feelings

Like the other comments, once you’re asking yourself this question, it’s time. Just because you have a child together, doesn’t mean you have to stay if you’re unhappy. Took me way too long to finally accept that.

A million people could tell you to leave and you’ll only leave when your ready (when you cannot take anymore) sad but true :heart:

I would really think about your reasoning. Marriages aren’t always rainbows and butterflies. It takes effort. It takes devotion. If he’s not physically beating you or hurting you, try counseling. You have to fight for what you want. Figure out how to love each other in your own love languages. Start dating again. Make a date night here and there so you get time together just the two of you. Send flirty texts. It’s so sad to see so many people throw their marriages away because they’re temporarily unhappy in that moment.

Relationships take work. They take compromise. They require both partners to give. Sometimes you’re going to give 90% while you’re partner gives 10%. Sometimes you’ll be the one giving 10% while you’re partner gives 90%.
Relationships require honest communication. They require empathy and compassion. They require you to try to really understand your partner.
It means stepping back. Not nagging but opening up to ask for what you need because no one is a mind reader.
That is the true nature of EVERY relationship.
It won’t always feel new. Honeymoon phases fade and give way to real world issues.

With all that relationships take there are times its going to be easier to walk away. There are going to be times when the grass looks greener on the other side.

There’s no time frame to walk away from a typical/normal relationship.
There’s time to walk away if you’re being cheated on or abused.
There’s time to walk away if you guys just can’t get it together.
There’s time to walk away if you feel like cheating.

Otherwise, there’s no set “time” its completely up to you. No one can force you to stay in a relationship you don’t want to be in but you.
