I am wondering how many mothers out there with kids with ASD have at least somewhat "good" marriages? My marriage is pretty much dead and one reason it has died is because of my husband's insensitivity toward my son and me. I worry so much about his future and would cry to my husband and say, " I worry that nobody will take care of him if something happens to me or when I die someday. " So I try to get my 14 year old stepson to understand autism and really try to get him close to his brother. My husband says, "Well, Mario (my stepson) may be out of the state and not be able to help him." My husband is so insensitive toward my feelings and my autistic son. How am I suppose to feel love for a man who is so insensitive to my feelings? Yet, the thought of divorce scares me because all of my 3 kids: 5 year old autistic son, 16 month old baby girl, and 14 year old stepson all cling to me and need me because their father shows the same insensitivity toward their feelings as well. In a dream world, I would divorce this man. I am so unhappy. What do I do?
