What is the impact of a long-term relationship between a parent and their children on the relationship?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from F.J.V. v. W.K.S., 2019 BCCA 67 (CanLII):

In my view, it was in the best interests of the children to have their parents avoid a ten-week trial over parenting issues: see Stonier v. Stonier, 2004 BCCA 307 at para. 31. Children are generally adversely affected by continuing conflict between their parents, and tensions are usually increased during a trial. As well, counsel for the respondent explained to the judge on January 7 that the trial was going to be costly and that the respondent had to make a decision whether she was going to be able to afford to raise the children.
