did you reconcile after a separation?
My husband and I are separating, I am leaving the home once DD is done school at the end of June. We have had problems on and off for years and have done marriage counseling and things change for a while but always go back to the same. He doesn't take are financial situation seriously and we have started fighting all the time and even in front of DD. He also never follows through on what he says there are other issues that I really don't want to get into but there is a lot.
I don't like who I am becoming and I don't want to end up hating him. I am hoping that a separation will force him to grow up and learn to follow through on what he says and mean what he says. I told him that six months a year down the road if he decides he wants to work on it and shows that things have changed that I am willing to try again but we are going to start of slowly. Or it could be that all the things that have been happening are his way of showing he doesn't want to be with me.
I am scared I have never been on my own. My big question is how many of you have reconciled after a separation and how did you know the other person was serious about changing?
