Hi there K,

here is your question that you posted:

"karmin i don't know what to do any more my husband has been gone for over a month now he has taken me off the cell phone bill because i had questions he says he doesn't know what he wants if he wants to be married or not if he is in love with me but he says he cares loves worries and will take care of me what does that mean he call once in awhile and we talk i tell him i want him to come home i love him so much i can forgive him for all the things he has done if he will tell me and i don't find out on my own he says he hasn't been with anyone else he has just been thinking trying to decide what he wants i am not sure if this is true or not why want he go to a counslor or something if he really doesn't know what he wants i don't know what to do i ask him what he wants me to do he says he doesn't know i told him i would do what he wanted to make him happy but i am just dieing inside i don't want to be alone for the rest of my life i want him to come home am i just wishful thinking or is he just biding his time to get money put away so he can have what he wants i don't work haven't worked in years since i have been diagnoised with the fybromaliga if i do anything for very long i am in so much pain i hate to take pain pills but i have to sometimes give me advise if you can i don't know if he is lying or not i want to believe him he has my heart and i don't want to let him go what am i suppose to do please help"

K, again, I'm truly sorry for what you're experiencing at present. He doesn't seem to want to change or do anything about this to try and resolve it or perhaps it's that he doesn't know how and is not prepared to deal with it. Your struggles with is very difficult for you and this stress from not knowing what is going on with your marriage cannot be helping you physically nor emotionally. I wonder if you were to try once more, write to him, call him or email him - explain that you're not willing to keep trying and waiting and you need to understand what are his intentions. This is your choice but my question to you would be how long are you willing to wait and sit with this uncertainty regarding his intentions?

Do you really feel that he may be deceiving and lying to you? If you had any feelings that this was the case, you need to start to think about yourself in all of this. It feels very wrong that he is taking such a long time, knowing that you are struggling to come to terms with his lack of response. Your question whether this is the end of your marriage - only you can answer this, but some factors that you may want to bear in mind - do you feel that you have exhausted all aspects? If so, and he's unwilling to try to attend counseling then unfortunately it seems as though he is taking a long separation from you. This doesn't necessarily mean it is over, but it may not look so good in trying to work things out.

K, do try though to contact him once more, if after this you feel you have exhausted all options, you may want to begin to think about what your needs are and what you might need to do. - including counseling for yourself, to enable you to think about your future.

I hope this is helping, please do come back to me for further assistance and support if you need it, I'd rather support you as much as possible and receive a positive rating and I'd be more than happy to continue supporting you until you feel satisfied.

Hello K, based on what you have told me with this new additional information, which I thank you for, it seems as though he is finding ways to detach himself from you but does not know how to actually tell you as he knows it will break your heart.

He should be honest and open with you - he is not. He should at the very least be transparent with you, yet it feels more like he's playing games with you and not keeping you in the loop about any of his comings and goings. You are right to be concerned and your gut instinct is now what you need to start trusting. Believing in yourself is of the utmost importance now. You deserve to be told what is going on yet he claims to not know (then why the secrecy of protecting his passwords and taking you off the phone bill?). It all seems too calculated to me.

K, my observation is that he is playing you but is going about it in a 'nice' way. This could be considered by some as insulting and humiliating. You need to decide now what your next step is. K, you might want to try and seek some professional support face to face with a counselor to try and build your confidence and start to think more about your own needs as I mentioned above. I'm pleased that the physical therapist is searching for this counselor for you, this is important. Your fibromyalgia, your health and your well-being are the most important things to take care of.

Your gut instinct is possibly telling you that this other girl is still involved somehow - and I believe in your gut feeling. In terms of practical support, you will need to seek advice on this. I am truly sorry for what you're going through, but you are strong, I know of people very close to me who suffer with fibromyalgia and it is not easy - if you can deal with this, you can deal with anything God throws at you. Stay strong and believe that you will get through this, as no matter how you do, you WILL get through this.

Whatever happens in the future, remember that you will have done your best to try and convince him to return to you, however your respect and dignity are important too for you so try not to lose sight if he has been playing games with you, then this is not acceptable by any stretch of the imagination.

Start to put things in place now K, it is time to take care of you. You come first. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
