Your kids are getting older, and you've found that they are having a harder time with the custody plan you have in place. Today, they went to school, for example, and the custody plan said that they'd come home and you'd be able to take care of them. Then, your tween called and said they wanted to go to their other parent's house and that their friend was having a sleep over nearby.
When there are disputes over child custody, those disputes can turn nasty. One parent might try to take their child without permission. Another might refuse visitation against court orders.
You have a family member who can no longer care for themselves. You want to help, but you're not sure what you can do.
Divorces are complex and difficult times in people's lives. Even if a person is happy to go through the divorce and to move on, it can be hard to take on the extra costs of living alone and the expense of a divorce.

You and your husband started out as business partners. It wasn't until after you'd worked together for a long time that you realized you loved being together and got married.
It can be scary to think about a child being taken from your custody by another parent. Perhaps they don't have custody and only get supervised visits, or maybe they do receive custody but have made comments that made you think that you one day wouldn't see your child again.
