Dating my husband during separation

Then, one day and seemingly out of the blue, the partner who has detached from the relationship announces that he or she is leaving and that there is no possibility of further discussion; no ambivalence to play on; no possibility of salvaging things.It’s particularly devastating when this occurs because the partner who is left has no time to prepare or anticipate and grieve the end of the relationship, and because the magnitude of the loss is tremendous, involving not only the loss of a sexual partner, but also a confidant and intimate friend, and often a house or a car or a standard of living. You become the best husband you can be and start showing that man to your wife.There is a dangerous storm coming – the biggest one in years.One partner in the relationship loses the attachment to the relationship, while the other partner does not.Often, this happens silently, without any fanfare or obvious signs, and the partner who remains attached to the relationship doesn’t know what is happening.

It is nearly impossible to describe the depth of pain you feel when you suffer a loss.

Occasionally in my practice there is a couple I am working with that are “stuck” and if they continue to stay together they will definitely hurt their chances of perpetual marital bliss.

Objective: To address the ambivalence about the marriage from one or both partners.

I thought we were going through a slump, that it was normal.
