    My husband has left after 23 years together, we have 2 teenage children and I’m scared. Our marriage wasn’t perfect, he made mistakes, I thought I’d forgiven him but our sex life took a down turn and he has basically said “he can’t live without it” . I wanted to feel safe and secure, he says he can’t promise that. I don’t even know how to start making a new life for myself. I have a job, with some work friends but other than that my marriage was everything. I suppose I’m just looking for reassurance from people who have been through this.

    It gets better, so I’m told! It’s one step forward…My sister says baby steps. It’s hard to see it but there is life after this. You need to be there for your two kids. Message me if you want.

    Thanks for your reply! It’s just tough right now. Baby steps, one foot in front of the other, that’s about all I can manage.

    Hi SD,

    Im going through pretty much exactly the same, I started a topic on it. Its such a horrible feeling of doom. Its just difficult as we’re under so much stress & trauma. Like lots of mini earthquake going off inside!  My wife took the kids, and emptied the house pretty much.  Stay strong, and reach out if needed.
