I havebeen lurking in this forum for the past week and I feel as though I need to share my story. My husband asked for a divorce this past Thursday and I am completely devasted. We have been married for 9 years (our anniversary was this past wednesday) and been together for 12.5 years. He says that he still loves me and there is not much he dislikes about me but we have nothing in common and we are not happy (he is not happy). We have 2 children 4 years and 11 months. We are still living together and will be until he leaves for Iraq again in January. We talked again last night and he just does not see the point in prolonging a marriage that does not work, he did say that if after he comes back from Iraq if he feels differently then he would consider therapy but he does not think that his feelings are going to change. We have had our ups and downs but I always thought that was part of marriage. I just don't see how I am going to be able to live with him and put on a front for the kids for the next 5 months. It tears me apart every day that I am with him. We can't afford at this time for him to move out and we are not going to file until after he comes back from Iraq. I just feel so lost and angry and devastated. If anyone could give me any advice on how to live with him for th next couple of months I sure would appreciat it.
