He wants to separate to re-evaluate

As the title says.

We have been married 5 years, together for 8 and have 2 DC 2 & 10 months.

He said he loves me but he’s not been happy for 6 months but doesn’t know why. Thinks we have grown apart, admits he’s needing help for depression and is seeing a GP today.

I went away for 4 days to my mums to leave him to have space. When we returned he said he missed kids but didn’t miss me much. Said it was nice for him to do what he wanted without having to check in etc

Said he wanted to separate to re-evaluate what he wants in life, as in our marriage, home, work and says he doesn’t know what he wants in any aspect of his life

I start a new job on Monday with the civil service . And after 6 months of probation period I’m hoping I’d be allow to transfer to my hometown if we didn’t stay together.

My head is just such a mess... I’m angry that he’s walking out on us and upset that I’m not enough for him ..

Sorry you are going through this, IMO depression doesn’t make a person say things like that, your self esteem will be destroyed if you are not careful, try and put yourself first, a return to your home town might make you feel stronger.

I'm sorry to say that I think he may well have someone else waiting in the wings. flowers

Very likely there’s another woman. Try posting on the relationships board.
