A man can be a bad husband but a good father to his children. Today, I saw a male patient who has a heart attack and needs bypass surgery, whose wife left him but their children are stuck with him. When I asked the children the reason why, they simply smiled and said, our mom was okey but our father was not just good. The couple still see each other but not as enemies or either friends. If it’s the only way to keep peace in the family, sometimes couples are better off away from each other.
