Son and husband got into it and now husband says he’s done…..

by Rod Smith

“A few nights ago my teenager and husband got in a shouting match. It was getting very threatening and I stepped in to stop it. They would not back down. My son went to his room and my husband started packing his clothes. My husband told me that he doesn’t love me and wants to move on. The argument had nothing to do with me but it was where we are in our marriage. He has given up and decided that life would be better without me and his child arguing. He really meant it when he said that he doesn’t love me, that he doesn’t need me and wants to move on. I am devastated. I never thought he did not love me. I don’t want my family to know what is going on, they would turn against him and there would be no chance of reconciliation. What should I do?”

The first thing I’d suggest both of you do, while it might be impossible considering the recent event, is that you both assure your son that it is not his behavior that is causing the problems between his parents. Allowing your family to support you at this time is probably a good idea. I’d suggest your family know more than you think they do.
