Divorce isn’t something to  be thrown around lightly. Know what you’re doing before you do it.

It’s one of the hardest questions you’ll ever struggle with answering.

“How do I know when I should file for divorce?”

You definitely don’t want to file before you need to, but you also don’t know how to respond if your spouse threatens divorce.

How should you react? What should you do? Can you put off a looming threat of divorce? And when should you use it as a “wake-up call”?

    Hello my husband and I are going through some very difficult times. I have a major shopping addiction . In 2011 i filed for bankruptcy which my husband paid the lawyers for and he never seem to have gotten over that. He has had several DUI and i have stuck by him through all of him and my support never waiver. In 2017 i excepted a new job and everything was my reality of perfect and suddenly i was laid off and i battled depression and my addiction came back into play. Recently my husband has been having an affair via text message which i have discover and he said he cut the relationship off once he was confronted but i recently saw message from the young lady that he’s still talking with. I asked you if he has stop talking to her and he says to me have you stop shopping which i have. Should i be worried that after being together for 19 years and married for 3 and 1/2 years that my marriage is over, neither one of us are good communicator

    Hello sweetheart. You are clearly seeing things very lucidly from both sides, you acknowledge your own addiction and mental issues – neither one of which is you fault – but requires work to overcome or to keep at bay a day at a time. You also say that neither one of you are a good communicator but -in my opinion, based on your message- you are a GREAT communicator, and observe things objectively. You clearly love him and he loves you, having supported each other through some extremely difficult issues, your shopping addiction and his alcohol issues/alcoholism. These issues alone are a lot to deal with, and, in my opinion, need to be addressed first and foremost. You can only work on YOURSELF. Help yourself, treat yourself kindly, do as much self-care as you can. Join a support group. Join a yoga group or start doing it at home on a REGULAR basis. Try meditation. Eat a clean diet. Do not consume alcohol or drugs, make sure you get enough sleep and moderate exercise Seek professional help, if you cannot stop any addictive behavior on your own (most likely, we cannot, addiction is a disease). Then, and only then, should you concentrate on your marriage. Two sick people together leads nowhere. You cannot change another person. Good luck!
