My husband is wanting to leave for a couple of weeks. Is it wrong to have misgivings about this?
My husband is 56. I'm 41. We have been married for 15 years. He has 5 kids, I have 2. They are all grow & only one @ home, my son who is almost 19. My husband has come to realize he is going through MLC. That knowledge & acceptances has given him more of a peace of mind cause now he knows what he has been going through is normal. Whereas before he felt like he was going crazy.
Before then he was ready to just take off. Wrecking my nerves & sense of security. I love my husband & I don't want to lose him. He has always had more freedom than most men. This could be the best time in our marriage with our kids being grow if He will allow it. Now he wants to leave home for a couple of weeks & stay with his oldest son who is 37 & recently single. He says he wants to do this to sort things out. Should I over-react cause I have misgivings about this? Or should I be patient & give him the time he needs?
But what if he stays away longer? I don't think I could handle that to well. O'mercy. This website has helped me to understand what he is going through but I'm still nervous about his instability. Noel's response
I think it is probably a good thing to let him spend some time with his son and 'sort things out' in his mind. A couple of weeks is not an inordinately long time.
