When my sons, Jacob and Isaac, were just 3 and 1, my husband and I separated.
As a child of a divorce, I'd always sworn that I'd never put my kids through that -- yet as it turned out, living paycheck to paycheck and trying to do our own growing up while raising a family proved to be too great a strain on our marriage: It bent, cracked, and finally broke.
I felt like a flake -- not a strong, capable mother who was going teach her children to succeed despite the obstacles ahead.
When I was married, we were just like all the other families: our own tiny self-sufficient universe.
Even if my husband and I didn't get along, we were both still deeply invested in the minutiae of running our family.
