Re: My Wife is separating from me - Day one
Well, that's day one. Something I forgot to say, when my wife officially left last night, at the point of saying, I am going, she hesitated when all I said was Ok. This hesitation seemed to last for ever.
What was she looking for? Was she expecting me to break down and cry, beg her to stay or was she wanting me to wish her good luck? I don't know but she didn't get whatever she was looking for.
Today, she came to see the kids. She started to remind me of things that needed to be done, such as washing, ironing etc. I politely reminded her that those tasks were my responsibility, not hers, I said that I would make mistakes but I would learn from them. I told her I did not want her doing any organising in my home and that her only purpose for being here was to see the kids.
I don't think my stance is going down well. Believe me, I still love my wife but I am not about to make this easy for her.
Also bought some new clothes today and will be cooking dinner for my Mum tomorrow.
It's still difficult though and I have a long journey ahead.
