My children are 7 and 9. What are age appropriate responses shall we separate? How do I protect them and their sense of safety and security?
I know it will backfire to be too honest as my spouse won’t take responsibility for his actions causing the end of our marriage. Instead, he will blame me saying Mommy doesn’t want to be married anymore, not me”
I expect a lot of behavioural immature responses from him, so how do I keep my head up? Protect my kids? Respect the age appropriate needs?
I was thinking along the lines of stating that married couples make promises and some of those promises have been broken. When that happens sometimes Mommy’s and Daddy’s chose to be friends instead of being married.
I have no idea and he will never agree with anything I suggest. In fact, I find it absolutely impossible to have a normal
Mature conversation about the status of our marriage at all. In fact, right now I am suffering from day 3 of the silent treatment by sharing my opinion about our marriage.
I would like to suggest a separation after Christmas but know that won’t come easy. He will make it difficult but also mix it up
With a bunch of love bombing and promises.
Me: BS, 41 / Him: SAWH, 43
