My husband asked for a divorce Thurs. He had a horrible day at work and had been drinking. I packed everything Fri. and took our 5 month old daughter and left. I have been talking to his sister and she feels that he regrets it. That it was only in anger and more of a cry for help. I went and talked with him today and now I wonder if divorce is what we need, or if there is still a chance. What I proposed was living apart, and marriage therapy. I asked no expectations and offered no promises. He agreed to that part. I really want this marriage to work but I am afraid to get my hopes up. I know a lot of our problems were mine and the fact that I lost myself in our relationship. I dont plan on sitting around waiting for him to decide. I am getting a job, hobbies, raising our baby, and learning to put me at the top of my list again. (With our baby first, of course!) My question is, Is it truly possible to work things out and have a better marriage, or is it better to just give up and move on. He says a part of him still loves me and misses me. He just hates what our relationship became. Do second chances with husbands actually work out?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
