My Divorce Story – By Marty F:
Why wife has just announced after 10 years of faithful marriage and fatherhood “I just don’t love you anymore”. I am absolutely reeling from this and feel that my whole world is crashing around me.
She seems very resolute and I can’t understand why she is reluctant to even try to turn things round for say 6 months – with no guarantees. Is there anything I can do to motivate her genuinely try?
I am saying to her that the consequences are so grave for me, the children, our financial security etc that it must be worth a pause before leaping into the unknown.
This seems so sensible to me but she id not convinced. She has reluctantly agreed to come to relate but only to “get them to convince me its over”.
Obviously I will always have an obligation to the children but about my wife? It all seems so unfair when I simply want to love and care for her as my wife. Any comments gratefully received.
