Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I believe that your husband is correct. Christmas is a very exciting time for a 12 year old. You need to put your feelings aside about seeing your husband when you come home and think about your daughter. Try to enjoy Christmas for her. Tell her that you really want her to enjoy Christmas and that's why we are not acting on our decision until after the holidays.
is there an "easy" way to tell her? should he do it or I (since I already did but he doens't know.

I understand how hard it must be for you to come home and see him there when things are the way they are between you, but try and think of your daughter at this time. Think to yourself --- that's one of my Christmas presents to her.
Oh, I just saw what you wrote --- hold on a sec.
okay you just made me cry but it will be my gift to her thank you very much
I'm not sure I understand. You already told her that you're leaving
Oh, you are bringing tears to my eyes, too!
told her that her fahter is leaving and we're separating. her and I will stay in the house. Yea, this is a difficult time for me. I do not love him anymore but the rejection is a killer!!
Exactly! She's only 12. You are her mommy but no matter how you feel, that is her daddy.
yea, she loves him a lot and i will try to foster that as best I can for her. I just need to get ME through this after the holidays. We're been toegther 20 years, will be a big adjustment to me.
I am sure it is a killer. Just hang in there over Christmas for her.
I will. Thank you for your advice, I will certainly wait till after christmas. Hope you enjoy your holidays.
I could only imagine how hard it must be for you.
Brutal. But life goes on. I just need to keep her a happy child. She is very perky and Christmas is her faviorte holiday and I want to keep it that way for her . Saying that myself I guess I already know I have to wait to tell her. Thanks agian
You try to enjoy them, too even though it will be very hard.
