I met my wife a little over one year ago. We hit it off immediately and I asked her to marry me 3 months later. We were then married 5 months after that. We didnt necessarily see this as too fast as we were in love, we both wanted kids, and we were in our mid 30s. Two months ago we found out we were pregnant. Happy times. Then last month my wife informed me she was no longer physically attracted to me and that she could not stay in this marriage. She said it was nothing I did, I was pretty much perfect except for this issue. We are each others best friend and we are always laughing together (at least we did ). She is going to move out next month to a house her parents bought for her. She will file for divorce sometime after the baby is born. This is where I stand now. Ive been wallowing in this for a month now. I have great family and friends for support and I think I am doing quite well considering the circumstances. However that does not mean I am eager to accept this situation. She wants to continue to be my friend and she wants me actively involved once the baby is born. I want to be the best father possible, but I just dont know how this is going to work, as far as me moving on. Some background she will deny it now, but she definitely had a physical attraction towards me at least until our wedding day. Im not sure when it disappeared. And as far as physical appearances, I am in great shape physically and I consider myself to be handsome. I told her I think she is confusing infatuation and attraction. Most peoples reaction to this story is that she was just looking for a baby all along. Once she got it, she had no use for me. On the surface I can see why people think this, but she is not that diabolical. Also, she could have gotten pregnant before going to the trouble of getting married if she would have stopped taking the pill. How would I have known? Sorry this is so long. I could write a bunch more
