Daughter and husband separating

Last night, I got a phone call from my daughter.  She said her husband told her he was dome and he gathered some of his stuff and left.  He said he would be back today to get the rest.  They have 3 children 13. 12, and 8.  She is going to cosmotology school, he works on the railroad.  They have been married 15 years.  This really bothers me, being a Minister and Pastor.  Their marriage has been rocky but, I never thought it would come to this.
 
It's about 4:45A here and I couldn't sleep so, I got up.  This is very sad.   I hate it for my grandkids.  They are all great kids and straight A students in school.

I am sorry to hear this is happening to your family, PeeWee. I am a child of divorce and it was rough as an 8 year old to have that life back in 1970, but as I look back on it, I see it would have been worse for my folks to \"stick it out\" in a loveless marriage. It will be a very difficult adjustment, but if things have been rocky all along, after the grieving process everyone will go through, maybe they can all be happier. That is my prayer for you all is that whatever happens, it will get easier and all of you can find peace in it.

Im so sorry to hear about this as well Peewee.. perhaps a break will do some good.. I agree as well though that if there is strife in the marriage it can have a really negative effect on the children, especially if the couple have stopped trying to make it work.. May God bless you and your family with some peace and healing..x

I\'m so sorry Pee Wee. I know how much this bothers you and hurts you for the grandkids especially. I do agree though, if things have been \' rocky \' for some time now, and there has been alot of fighting around the kids, that certainly is not good. I will keep your family in my prayers. Love you Pee Wee.

i am glad your grandkids have you in their lives. it will help them to have you as a stable male influence in their lives. i came from a divorced home but stuck it out in a bad marriage for the sake of my kids, however, i am not sure me doing that was really the best for them. they still have suffered growing up in a dysfunctional home even though we didn\'t fight or argue. i can see the damage that was done to them in their adult lives trying to relate to their spouses. so it is hard either way on kids.
