Talking to my husband, who left our home
My husband left our home 2 weeks ago with a few bags of clothing. He said he needs Time & space from our home & me. I was in shock. we have been married for 26 years and I have given him everything he could want. He works from home, and doesn't make much money at all, so I have been the bread winner for years. I have never complained about it.
He spends our money and i still don't complain. I have never made him feel less than. He smokes weed daily to keep his sanity as he puts it. He gets anxiety attacks from time to time. He is on thyroid medication for a low thyroid as well.
He has called me every night and texts me most mornings to say hello and see how I am doing. He also says I love you every time and says he misses me.
we met the first time after 4 days, now we are meeting again tonight. However he doesn't say much and can't seem to tell me why he is unhappy. I asked about another women he said NO, I asked if he was IN love with me and he said he thinks so.
I don't know how to handle this, and i don't want to give up on him or our relationship
any thoughts?Noel's response
If you have read the other comments here, and/or read the rest of this website, you will see he acting like many other men at his age.
He may just need some space, as many men and women do at this age. I suggest if you are still supporting him (you mention he is spending your money) while he is living away from you, you might suggest he live on his own dime.
As I have suggested to others, figure out what you want to do with your own life, with or without him, and move ahead with it.
