As I posted before my husband and I are seperated, but because of a job but also because he is going through some sort of depression and major confussion.
I am not sure if we will reconcile. I would like it if we did. He left on the pretence of a job and career advancement which did not pan out. He did get a job abut not the one he went there for. He is trying to come back but because of debt can not come back without a job.
Anyway the children are used to him being away as he has been apart a great deal of thier lives. My oldest is starting to put two and two together.
Should I sit her down and tell her DAD may never come back to live with us, or should I keep pretending everything is alright in the hope that we will reconcile?
she internalizes everything and I do not want to upset her but I do not want to lie to her either.
i would be completely honest with the kids. they are much stronger than we give them credit for and they also know more than we think about what's going on around them. They are smart little people. You should sit them down, and explain things, maybe give them hope that things could work out but it might be awhile. Only my opinion.........
