i read a post that a man is deciding to leave his wife and his son... this is so heartbreaking... because I went through same situation before but by God's love our marriage was saved from total destruction. I hope this man change his mind and never leave his wife... because I know there is just something in their relationship that only GOD could fix...

I hope you are right about that. I don't know why this man has decided to leave his family, it may be something major or not. With that being said you are right God can fix it, however if the spouse is unwilling God will not impose His will. Are you able to provide a link to that discussion so I can further understand the situation? I would like to know the circumstances of why he is leaving. I left my ex because of a life threatening situation.

your situation is understandable... but his reasons are not. I assume this man just want to be happy I understand that as well but he can be happy still especially if his staying with his family. here's the link I hope we could help him. because he's really asking for options of getting separated. but i think in his situation separation is not an option. thanks so much http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2755433.aspx

thanks for sharing the link. I read it and responded to it as best I knew how, however I didn't see his response to you before I responded. I think maybe his wife is going thru post mortum. I could be wrong on that because I don't know how old the child is. Anyway I will pray for the family.

I also hope he will have a change of heart. Whatever their problem is, I hope they try to give their marriage one more chance and try again. I hate to hear couples separating, especially if they have young kids. Of course there are certain circumstances that I would suggest separation despite them having young children just because that option will be the lesser evil. For example, if the man is a wife-beater.
