Re: husband said he is falling out of love
My wife told me a few months back that she's not happy with the marriage anymore. I found out later that she had already found interest in another man prior to revealing this information. A few weeks after that, I found out that she fell in love with this other man.
She claims that this new man and I share her love equally, but I know in my heart that's not true.
Anyway, how did I handle it?
First, I cried a lot. I got depressed, and I could not sleep. I lost 20 pounds in two months (probably the best thing that happened with this experience). Then I started to be practical about it.
I still love her, and I went with the cliche that says, if you love someone set them free... blah, blah...
It's natural to be confused and hurt. By the time you accept the reality that your love is unrequited, and you can swallow your pride and move on, you will be on your way to healing yourself emotionally.
Good luck and be strong. You will definitely need it.
