My husband has unilateraly decided to separate. We had an awful argument about a week ago. At one point during the argument he leaned into me and called me a fu**ing B*tch. I slapped him. I'm pretty sure I shocked the hell out of him, but it just happened. Now before I get all the lectures, please know that I completely admit that I was wrong. There is never a reason to hit or slap, even if one feels like they're provoked. I apologized, but that wasn't enough. He decided that "that was it" and he left. He made a huge scene about it...carrying his clothes on hangers out to his truck and loading up personal belongings. My kids were of course confused. They asked him what he was doing and he told them that "mommy slapped me and I'm leaving". Regardless of (admittingly) my mistake, I don't think he should have put the children in the middle. Anyway, he left and I stayed with the kids. He hasn't asked to see the kids (4 and 8) and only calls me to get basic information (bank info, bill info, etc.). He doesn't at all appear to be phased by our separation. In 1 week, he has separated our car insurance, cell phone bills, etc. All of course leading me to believe that he believes this to be a more permanent situation. I am absolutely devastated and he acts like he doesn't have a care in the world. Is there any hope for us? Does his behavior truly reflect his long term desire? I am so hurt I don't even know what to do. Worse yet, I don't have the first clue what to tell my kids. How will I get through this? What do I do?
