Divorce Causes: Does Having Children Put A Strain On Marriage?

Does having children put a strain on marriage?

On Thursday's episode of "The Ricki Lake Show," a mother of two admitted she's so tired from raising her children that she's "lost love" for her husband and her kids. It's gotten so bad, she says she even fantasizes about having weekends to herself if she and her spouse were to divorce.

"My marriage is falling apart," the woman says in the clip above. "I'm not seeing the precious things in my children, I'm not having fun with them."
