I have been married for ten years, having gotten married at the age of 19. My wife and I have grown into two entirely different people over the years. We don’t make each other happy anymore. We don’t have any common interests, we disagree on the way to raise our five-year-old daughter, and quite frankly, I’ve fallen out of love with her. I asked her to attend therapy, but she only agreed to one session. She called this morning and said that she would rather die than live without me, and I can’t handle that on top of the emotions I’m feeling. I’m trying to protect our child and do what’s best for her — and for me too. Any suggestions?
My husband and I just split up after only one year of marriage. We were together for seven years and have two children together. Our mothers didn’t like our mates and interfered in our marriage. We had a stupid argument one night, and he moved back in with his mother. I still love him very much, but he won’t speak to me. I want the fighting to stop and for him to come home. What can I do to bring him back to us?
My now-ex-husband had an affair while I was pregnant with our second child. Given the choice between her and us, he chose her. Now he wants to leave our precious babies (ages 3 and 1) in her care during visitation. I despise this girl. She also just turned 19. My husband and I are 36. Please help me. How do I deal with this?
I have been divorced for three years now, and am in a new relationship with a woman I met at the office. We have known each other for almost two years now, and I am really enjoying life for a change. My girlfriend is also divorced. There is a 13-year age difference between us, which doesn’t matter to us. It’s rare for us to have a disagreement about anything, but when we do, we sit down and talk about it. Between us, we have five children aging from four to 15 years. We live in separate apartment buildings across from one another. We’ve talked about moving in together this fall, but I’m worried about how some of the children might react to this. I think that if the situation is dealt with properly, we can make it all work. I truly do love her and would like our relationship to move on to the next step. What do you think?
