Even if it just thanking them for taking out the trash or making the bed. Debbie your comment "It's far harder on your spouse's heart if you've led her to believe that you will be coming back fully committed to the marriage," why is it in a world of women wanting equality I find that more often than not, that most articles written by women, I feel they are only concerned about one side of the relationship, Does the guy not get a broken heart also.
shouldn't it have been "It's far harder on your spouse's heart if you've led her/him to believe that you will be coming back fully committed to the marriage," why couldn't it have easily been the her coming back to the marriage fully committed.
This option is especially challenging if the bond between the two of you has been weakened by a betrayed trust.
And the next thing i know one morning in route to work, trying to buy breakfast with my check card and it did not work.
I get to work and the bank account is empty, try to call the house, no answer, so i leave work to find all my clothes on the front porch, along with alot of other stuff.

This separation can be done at any time and, indeed, is being done by more and more couples.
