What do I do if my husband is not committed to the marriage?

My husband keeps walking out on me over petty arguments. He says he can’t guarantee he won’t leave me again. Any advice on the right way to deal with an uncommitted husband?

Dear friend,

It sounds like your husband is using this behavior as a matter of control. I suggest that you get some marriage counseling. You don’t mention how long you have been married or if you have any children. His behavior does not sound encouraging regarding the stability of your marriage. See you priest for names of local marriage counselors. You are in our prayers.
