| | Re: Left a marriage to jump in to a new relationship.
I think you are both right. Some time apart would give her time to clear her mind. Not only are we both dealing with leaving our marriages, her parents are talking about getting a divorce too. That just adds much more un-needed stress on her right now.
I guess I'm scared to give her the space. Scared to be alone, scared she will find someone else who she is more happy with.... It's hard to think that though, because we both gave up so much to be with each other.
I've been doing a lot of reading, and I think one good stance for me to take right now is to hide my emotions and just be strong and supportive for her, to not add any more tension. If she wants some space, I'll give her what she wants and will be there to support her. I hopped that she would like to be with me during a difficult time like this, but maybe that's me rushing in to things some. I think for now, i'm going to not express any of my problems or concerns and focus on helping her deal with her issues without addressing mine.
