    My husband called me today and said we should separate. It's a big long story and I'll cry if I have to tell it again, but could I have some hugs?

    We talked on the phone all evening. I think we both understand now where the other is coming from. He's on his way back now and we're going to both try to be better. He's going to work on being more reliable and I'm going to try not to nag and yell as much. We're getting a cleaning lady for my sanity's sake.

    Thank you all for your love and support.

    I am sorry to hear of your situation, minkajane. One way or another, if you find the inner strength within you, you will pull through. Especially nowadays, we must be mentally prepared for romantic breakups and understand the consequences of all our courses of action. No romantic relationship, no matter how good or stable it may seem, is guaranteed to last forever.

    I would like to use this opportunity to warn others about marrying very young. These marriages tend to be less stable and lasting. Women are especially vulnerable if they have kids in one of these rocky relationships and are left with the kids. Their risk of poverty is greatly increased. I suggest women wait it out a little more than they'd wish and get married from 24-32. They should generally not have kids until at least a few years of marriage have passed (although this can be tricky for women reaching their mid to late 30s). Before then they can still remain in a very committed relationship. After that they run an increased risk of infertility.

    i actually have noticed more marriages work out where the people were younger. You grow into eachother. When you marry when your older, you're already set into your own habbits, often a big cause of divorces cuz people can't seem to comprimise. Not to say that older marriages don't work, either, but that's just my opinion. I got married at 19, and i couldn't be happier. As did both my grandparents. My parents did, too, and although they divorced, it was 13 years later and it was due to a brain injury. My aunt and uncle married young as well.

    i'm glad that you guys are trying to work at it :)
    cody had a bit of a scare right after we had Leane and contemplated the same thing, but we were able to work through it and are happier now than we were before.
    I really hope the same happens for you. ((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))

    Wow, that's great. Two people that are able to admit their faults and work at making each other happy. I wish all couples could do that.
