Do men return to their family when they waken from a MLC fog?
(Seneca Falls, NY)
My husband of 34 years left our family fir another woman six months ago. I have been to a counselor and went through all the details of his behavior leading up to this. She gave me some articles to read that talked about the behavior of a man going through this. I could have written it myself, from the all about me attitude to the "I love you but I am not in live with you" speech. It has been six months and he has very little contact with me and absolutely no contact with our children and grandchildren. It's like he drew a line, stepped across and hasn't looked back. Everything is totally out of his character. My heart if hearts tells me he is going to realize what he has list once the fog clears and want his family back. Has anyone ever had this happen? If so, how long did it take? I am willing to wait and I keep assuring him that my love for him is unconditional and the door to our home remains open. I will not give up 38 years and the live of my life without fighting. Comments, experiences, etc strongly encouraged.
Some men realize they made a mistake and want to return to the family. Others don't. It sounds as though you are doing what you can to leave the door open, while still moving forward with your own life.
