Question:What if I dont want the divorce

What if I don't want the divorce but my husband does?

Answer:

I was in the same situation, but discovered that once he made up his mind, there was nothing I could do to change it. I am so much better off now - realizing that I don't have to live under his control but that I can do what is best for me. You cannot control anyone, especially someone that no longer wants to be with you. It is one of the hardest steps in the world to take, but you will rediscover yourself in time.
