My husband left me on Monday saying he needed space. He is staying with his friend. He has been meeting our son on an evening for about hour and I have seen him both times when I collected our son. Both times he’s cuddled me and cried and said I love you to me. Then tells me to text him?? When I do text him he hardly replies or replies with the least amount of words. He tells me he’s unsure how he feels and just needs space on his own. I’m so upset and frustrated cos I just don’t know what to do for the best. He tells me one thing face to face then something else via text. Please someone help me I’m going insane. I literally have broken down and cannot function.
I felt the same when my wife left me 6 months ago so I think I can sympathize. It was the worst time of my life. It’s probably not much help to say at the moment it just needs time but there are many people who have had experiences similar to yours on here and I found it a great comfort.
Hi. Right for what its worth, my advice if he has said he wants space give him it, i know its very difficult but it really is the only way. My wife kept telling me she needed space and i didnt listen and now we are at a stage where there (for her at least) there is no way back. I hope it works out for you
