do husbands ever return
after 18 years of marriage 2 kids 18 and 4 mu husband who was working away for the past 2 years due to major financial problems decided he could no longer "do this" and said he was not in love with me anymore.
3 months on he still feels confused, he phones every 2 days and we have lengthy conversations.
He sees me as a very close close friend who he can confide in and does not know if he will come back or if his feelings will change.
He is happy to sit in my company but wont drink around me because we will end up in bed! states he still finds me attractive.
Am I losing the "plot" here or is he having a midlife crisis. There is no one else involved, when I ask him about the state of our relationship he says I am cornering him, admits he does miss me at times and is of the belief that he will always be there for me financially. Help feel like I am losing my mind never mind him.
It does sound like a midlife transition. It is common for men to feel confused about things at a time like this.
As to whether he will come back... some do and some don't. I realize that is of little help to you, but that is my observation over the years.
I suggest you maintain your own boundaries, and hang in there. At least he doesn't sound mean, like so many men seem to be in a midlife crisis.
