I wanted to let you all know I am still hanging in there. Alex had his first day of school Wednesday, 4th grade, he is getting so big! Tuesday night he had a break down over his father. He sobbed and cried until he was sick. He said he was too sad to go to school. I stayed home from work so I could go to school with him and talk to his teachers. He did fine but this is so very hard on him.
I also called his counselor, he sees a behavioral therapist

Ok, I have prayed and cried myself sick the last few days knowing that if Robert didn't realize what he was doing, come to his senses and seek help that I would have to see an attorney to protect my ability to provide for Alex.
I called a family friend who is an attorney and she gave me insight as to how to think spiritually as well as legally. She said in order for me to protect us and our home and Robert if he is indeed having a mental breakdown

Thank you all for your support and prayers. I really need the support. I have told the family what Robert has decided. He has been avoiding them. I have also told them that I will not seek a divorce because I don't believe in it. They are all supportive and willing to help in any way.

Lyn, I too am sorry! But, I see wisdom in your way of thinking and looking at the situation. After all, it is HIM who does not want to stay married. Not you!
As difficult as it may be, the only real answer just may be to GIVE HIM HIS FREEDOM! That's what he wants. I say, LET HIM HAVE IT. But, I would consult a lawyer, since he is obligated by law to pay you child support and perhaps even alimony. He is the deserter and the neglectful one in the

Ok, I have a heavy heart today I finally managed to have a conversation with Robert last night and he once again told me he was unhappy and didn't want to be married any more.
This time was not as bad nor such a shock. I can understand him questioning his feelings but he steadfastly refuses to continue counseling. He says he is tired of people telling him how he feels when he knows how it is. He had also been taking some anti depressant
