Hi everyone sorry if this might be a long story but it has come and quite a shock to me and i would like some prayers and I hope my husband decides to come back to his family.
March 14th 2011 my husband was depressed pretty much all morning. I had to be at work a little after noontime as I work per diem so i couldn’t call out. I kept asking him all morning if something was bothering him and he kept telling me no everything was fine. Anyways i’m at work and I kept texting him trying to get him to tell me what was wrong and all i got at that point was “We will talk about it when you get home” so i kept on asking and finally he texted me and told me he didn’t want to be married anymore. I was shocked. I knew our marriage wasn’t perfect but i would have never thought in a million years that would have been what he was going to say. He has been depressed for the last 2 years and would never get help for it and then right before Christmas I found out he was planning his own death on a suicide website. He was saying and talking to everyone about how he is mentally unstable and he believes he has bipolar but has not seen anyone to confirm. I confronted him after i found that out and he told me he was so afraid to tell me because he thought i would leave him. He promised me he would seek help but he never did. So when he told me that day he didn’t want to be married i thought he was going through one of his episodes. He now tells me that he is not in love with me anymore is so much happier without me and that he does not want to be with any woman period right now. I am not sure what to do i love him so much and we have a 5 year old daughter together. He filed for Divorce about 2 weeks after he left us. I met with our parish Priest about 1 week after he left and my husband met with him the same day that he filed for Divorce. My husband said that he still wants to visit our Parish Priest together but his mind has not changed because he is so much happier without me. I don’t understand how someone who says he is a Catholic can do something like this to his family who loves him so much. I don’t work only per diem so i am staying with my parents right now and I don’t see any money for our daughter except for 200.00 a month. I only make about 200.00 a month myself so we are living on 400.00 a month. About 1 week ago he just went out and bought a car but yet he can’t even send his daughter a little more money. I have been praying every night for God to touch him and for him to see the light that this is not the way. We both have never been unfaithful to one another so I have no idea how he thinks we cannot reconcile and have a wonderful life together. He just keeps reminding me how happy he is now that he is alone so i have no idea what i should do. I’m trying to not think about him and I am totally strong for our daughter but after she falls asleep at night i can’t help but cry because i miss him so much. We also just went on a little vacation just the 2 of us in early Feb and we had a great time together laughing and just being together. I surprised him with that as well i planned the whole thing so i could do something special for him. I don’t know how in 1 month and 1 week he can go from having fun with me and being in love to not being in love with me anymore. We are a young couple i am 23 and he is 24. Just keep us in your prayers and i hope he will find his way back and realize he cannot be happy without a family. Thanks for letting me talk.
