I also see that in more cases fathers will get the bad rap, that once they've left they're gone, no second, or third chances. but mothers seem to be given many more chances.
This, definitely, especially the latter. There are a lot of people who confuse a man wanting out of an unhealthy marriage/wanting to be away from an unhealthy wife with wanting to be away from the whole family.
