Where to from here?
Hi , and l'm really sorry about the sitch. l know how hard it is especially with the kids right not, went through it myself . Although l didn't leave although we did break up in the end but l was also going through similar to your hub for a few years before.
Anyway being male and through similar, l think right now first of all let him have this time . l know if l would've just taken it when l really needed it , l think l would've got things back into perspective with some proper alone time and l might've been able to start over with x. Yaknow l could imagine how hard this is for you and of course l can't say it'd be the sane for your hub, but l'm just thinking it might be a maybe, if he just takes some time out to get his bearings.
Sorry l can't suggest more but hopefully some others will drop in and help if possible,
Hang in there.
I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. I think in trying times such as these it's best to let some time pass before you do anything. Focus on your children and getting through the day. You don't know why your husband has left, he may be depressed for reasons even unknown to himself. He'll make contact when he has found his barrings again. But it's so important that you don't loose yours over this for your children and yourself. Stay strong.
