    For the sake of children

    This sentence is from a short story I am currently writing. I am wondering if it sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    I begged her not to divorce me for the sake of children, but she was indifferent, as if I were a stranger she suddenly met in the street.

    '... for the sake of the children ...'.

    The 'suddenly' does not work for me. I'd say '... met by chance ...'.
