Feel trapped in a relationship I don't want to be in because

Feel trapped in a relationship I don't want to be in because I don't want our son to be in a broken family as I came from one. I wish we could be friends but I know it would kill me if he met someone else. I feel selfish and guilty but I don't know what to do. We are supposed to be trying marriage counselling soon and I just don't see the point. Sorry for the rant just needed to get it out. Any advice good or bad would be appreciated. Thankyou.

I'm definitely not saying give up on a savable relationship. I love love, loving, being yourself with someone u enjoy is one of the best things in the world. And even being pregnant can change a lot. Don't give up if it is what you want.

It sounds like you aren't ready. Just don't rush things. Take your time. Try to make the environment for your baby as positive as it can be in the meantime. Have some rules in place and do your best to stick to them.

I hope this question doesn't offend you... what will your life with your baby look like outside of this relationship? Does the negative stuff you don't want for your son go away after leaving your husband?

Counselling sounds like a solid step in the right direction as long as you are both honest and open to it. Do you do personal counselling for your own mental health?

Are you happy with yourself? Do you love yourself? Until you can say yes to these questions (for the most part anyway), I'm not sure the answer to any other question is going to be reliable.

You can do this... one day at a time.
