It depends on the situation. In some extreme cases, it can be justified, but it really depends on your circumstances.

No, be woman enough to take your two children

Take your children, don't leave them behind. The best person to take care of children is usually the biological mother of the children. It will be irresponsible for you to leave your children for whatever reason. Yes if you have irreconcilable differences with your husband you can leave him but not the children...

Its not for us to judge you since we do not know all the details here of your situation and why you left.  Its usually bad to leave the kids but if you feel what youi did is in the best interest of your kids, then so be it. But there will always be hard feelings here if someday you try to go back to them so be prepared but now you must live with your decision . Also there is never an easy way of knowing if what you did was the right thing or not but its done so move on and don't look back unless you want to go there.  Good luck

Without knowing your circumstances it is very hard for any of us to judge or indeed, give advice. On the surface it sounds like a bad thing to do, but only you know the reasons that have brought you to this agonising decision.

Let me just tell you about a friend of mine though.
She had what we all thought was the perfect marriage. She seemed really happy and adored her two sons. Then one day she met a man at work and made the decision to leave her husband and children for this man.

Her children no longer speak to her at all, and any cards sent to them are returned unopened. I know for a fact that it is the boy's decision, as they are teenagers and old enough to decide for themselves. My friend had to go to counseling to cope with losing her kids and she begged me at Christmas to find out how they are.

Kids are innocent, whatever has gone wrong with your marriage is not their fault. If you really have to leave them as well as your husband then at least make them understand your reasons and ensure that they know you love them.

If there is any way to stay with your children I think this would be the right thing to do - but as I said, I don't know your circumstances.

If you have a problem that you feel you need to get off your chest, I would recommend speaking to a counsellor or the Samaritans. This is a decision that will change your life and you need to know your options and be clear with your reasons before you make it, there's nothing better than speaking to someone impartial to help you see things in a new light.
