    When is the right time to leave a marriage that is very toxic.

      Assuming that neither partner has become totally insane yet, time it to maximize the best tax and other financial consequences.

      As soon as you realise it is toxic.

      Immediately.  What does delay achieve? 

      The longer you wait, the older you get, and therefore the harder it will be to find a new partner.

      The longer you wait, the more pain and stress you cause yourself, which is not good for your health.

      If you're delaying because you don't want to hurt your partner - it won't do any good.  It will hurt exactly the same now, or in one year, or in five years. 

      There are only two valid reasons for delay. One is to give yourself time to plan an orderly exit.  The other is where there are children involved - which doesn't necessarily mean you have to stay, it just means you have to work out what's best for them.

    It's the same as the right time to stop ingesting poison.  Toxic equals poison.
