    Hi everyone.

    I have an 18 month old son and unfortunately I have become very unhappy in my marriage. There is no physical or mental connection anymore and I have reached the decision I would like to separate from my husband.


    Does anyone have experience of what to do when you first leave? It’s a scary step but I need to live my life and so does my son.


    Thanks for reading.

    I was there. My son was 2 years when I decided to separate. It’s hard.

    what I would say is to talk to your partner about  it, maybe try counselling if you both feel it could work. We talked but didn’t do the counselling, maybe I was afraid of what I may have to say.

    but it is hard. Is he a good dad? I guilt myself still over the choice I made – not being with my son 24/7 hurts. There are ups and there are downs. Suppose xmas may be a down! But do what you need to do as ultimately it is yours and your kids life. I think exploring the issues with your partner first and seeing what you can do is the best piece of advice – it may not work but it may lead to a better separation. One thing I would say is that my lad is fine, happy and settled.
