I am 48 years old and I am scared. My wife and I have been together for 7 years, married for 3 1/2 years. My wife recently told me she wanted a divorce. She said she was tired of taking care of me and she has tried repeatedly to tell me she wasn't happy. I love her so much. I guess I was being selfish and failed to listen. Now my world is ending.

You had to try to remind her? How sad is that? You don’t need to TRY to remind someone who loves you. The best thing for you is to try to make good memories with your child. Be the best you can be with him/her. It’s soooo hard I know , but you MUST close the book on your spouse. If we don’t our children will suffer even more because they’ll grow up thinking it’s ok to stay in a loveless marriage. All you can do now is DON’T talk bad about your wife and or problems you have in you and your wife’s relationship. Ever heard the term “Kill-’em with kindness”? Well that’s exactly what you must do. I can’t stress enough let’s put the past behind us as much as possible!
I’m actually only crying once a day now. Which is good for me. Time will heal our wounds.

We don't fight or argue and we plan to remain amicable. Our main focus now is our son. I can see someday in the future us being friends. Not the kind that hang out together but ones that still care about each other somewhere inside just not enough to be together. I don't have anything bad to say about her to him. She is a great mother. All of the raw pain and agony I feel at the loss of my marriage, my home, my car, and everything else connected will pass as time goes by.
