Hi, first time poster on this board but I'm anticipating a separation in my marriage (requested by me b/c DH doesn't get the point that we have to work on our marriage).
I want to give you Hope, if that's what you're looking for. I have a friend whose husband didn't say anything to her - he just up and left the house and didn't come back. They had a DD at the time, maybe 1 yrs old or so. He wasn't sure he loved her anymore and wasn't sure if he wanted to be a father (a little late, I know) and it lasted around 4 months I think. She prayed for him the whole time that he would figure out what he truely wanted and she prayed for his happiness as well knowing full well that he may not choose his family. After working on their marriage while living in seperate places, he did decide to come back and figured out that he did love his family. It's been 3 or 4 years now since then and they are stronger as a married couple and stronger in their faith due to this life trial. They've had another child in the mean time and are expecting their 3rd baby.
I guess the key to this story is that you and your H actually have to work on it while seperated. That is IF you want to stay married. Go to counciling or if it's not covered, go to your church and ask to talk with a pastor.
