Title: "I need help with my marriage on the rocks"  Author: Unknown

I have been separated from my husband for two weeks now, by my stupidity. I left him because I couldn't handle all of the stress that was going on in our marriage and all that around us, including his controlling parents to which we lived under their roof due to financial trouble. I need his forgiveness so bad. I never meant for all of my running away to get this far out of hand. He says that he wants a divorce and nothing can change that. He says it was my decision. He has already separated all of our stuff and given me most of my stuff, he wants to keep my wedding ring and a few things that he thinks should belong to him, but none of them even matter to me.

Only he matters to me. What do I say to him to help him see how serious I am about keeping us together? The last time I went up to his parent's house, where he's at, to get the rest of my stuff, his mother stood over him, I tried to give him a hug, but he was stiff. I want to write him a letter, but don't know where to start. Four days after our breakup he signed up for a date site and put down that he was single and looking for someone. I'm so very broken. How could he do this. How could he forget about God, about me. I've done nothing but keep God in my life closely, where as it looks like he is seeking elsewhere for love. Why? How do I fix this marriage that looks as though it's heading for a major disaster? I need answers and prayers desperately.

A reader says ... I think that you need to find out what God's will in this situation and find peace in knowing that whatever you do from this point on is His will not yours or your husbands. It sounds as if your husband has lost his love for you or that there is too much to overcome at this point, but I don't think that you should try to manipulate or force him back into a relationship with you. There are probably a lot of financial difficulties or children or other reasons for staying married. But you need to find out what the Lord wants you to do so that you both will find peace and eventual happiness. I recommend and lot of fasting and prayer.

A reader says ... I pray that your husband will change his heart. However a husband should not divorce his wife just because she separated for 2 weeks. He doesn't sound very forgiving. You need a loving forgiving husband. So if he divorces you, you may find a better husband. I pray God will bless you and give you wisdom!
