How to make this work?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
H and I just separated a few days ago and although we are getting along really well, I don't know how to get what I need out of this. Our kids are really young (1 and 3) so they still really need both of us a lot of the time. I don't know how to get the space I need from H and still put the kids first. I don't want to be married to him anymore, but it just kills me to think of the kids not being able to see either of us all the time. I have not been getting the space I need to get my head straightened out. He's a good person and a good dad, but we are a terrible match and we are past the point that counselling would help (I'm planning to get some on my own, though). I am just done and don't want to make it work. I'm a really peaceful person and am this conflict just cuts me to the core, and am dealing with a lot of guilt about being "the bad guy" in this. Anyway, I'm just looking for some advice from you mamas who have been there. Thanks

(((sending hugs))) you seem really mature, and if he's a good dad you should be able to figure things out. Transitions take time...

i have no advice because i'm a failure at what you're trying to do.
but if you both have your babies best interests in mind you will do the right thing.

good luck
