He Stopped Loving Me

He Stopped Loving Me www.herviewfromhome.com
Written by Her View From Home

It has been almost one month since my husband finally broke down and told me he couldn’t do this anymore. This, as in, our life, marriage, home, the suburbs. I have been waiting for years for him to do this, but holding on to hope and love that we would reconnect and rediscover how we fell in love.

It turns out that marriage is not for him.

The responsibility, the pressure, the vulnerability. He stopped turning to me when times got too rough. He stopped turning to me when he needed support and help. He just stopped. Loving me. Wanting me.

The pain is overwhelming. It takes my breath away. Those first 2 weeks I couldn’t breathe. I helped him divide our things. I watched him prepare to move out. I am preparing to sell our home that we just bought 6 months ago. The pain is constant. I feel like I will never be normal again. My heart is so damaged and broken.

Then I remember. God loves me. My two boys love me. My family and friends love me. I don’t know why this is happening to me. Why I must endure this pain and suffering. Yet, deep in my heart, I know God has a plan for my life. That is separation and divorce is just a part of what HE has in store for me. I am strong because He loves me. I am surviving because He is carrying me. I will get through because I have my Lord by my side.

  • Wow. This is my greatest fear. Marriage is such a fragile thing, I don’t care who you are or how much you “follow the Lord”. My husband is my best friend and worst enemy. There is so much trust there, but I know trust can’t be trusted no matter the source.

  • I’m so sorry – been there, done that. It’s not easy, but you have the right frame of mind. God is there! Family and friends are there and you are not alone.

  • Hugs. Been here. It is a hurt like no other. But, it will get easier. Keep leaning on the love of God and family. It will carry you on the worst of days.

  • I am where you are right now. My husband left me and our daughter. I have been praying for him faithfully everyday that God would soften his heart and make him the man husband and father He wants him to be. I have also been praying the prayer of Hosea to bring my husband home. My husband has asked to reconcile and come home. I keep praying for Gods guidance and peace as I wait. My husband and I have talked every day since I have started praying. There have been bumps but I hold to Gods promise “that no man shall separate what God has joined together.” I pray your husband will have a softened heart and come home. Stay strong!
