S wrote to me about her story. Her last sentence explains the feelings so many women and children go through. Like so many women in these situations, S is blaming herself for her husband’s feeling of misery. Doing this lessens who we are inside and wounds us deeply in regions that cannot be reached or defined. S please know, this is not your fault. A man who leaves his pregnant wife because she makes him miserable needs to be prayed for. Wedding vows do not include the phrase, “For better or worse until she makes you miserable.” You are a valuable and wonderful person and deserve to be treated as such. I have not heard from S since, but hope to one day.
Please join me in praying for S and her family but leaving your comments below.
God Bless you S…
My husband is leaving me while I’m pregnant. We have been married for two years. He has a 5 year old from a previous marriage. He has him every other weekend for 4 days. I have known and love his son since he was a baby. Now we’re expecting one of our own, a daughter, and he wants nothing to do with her. He is a loving father to his son, one of the many reasons why I fell in love with him. He has been nothing but a good husband to me, so loving, caring, and supportive. Last year this time, he has expressed that he does not want to be married. He felt like he wants to do more in life and being married made him feel like it’s holding him back. He runs a business that is doing very well but he is the type of person that wants more. He is very driven and competitive to the point that it is scary at times. I have always supported him of his dreams of expanding his business. We got over this struggle in our marriage last year which also almost ended up in divorce. Now, out of the blue, after months of bliss and excitement for our upcoming child, he wants to get out of our marriage for the same reasons he had the last time. He said I forced him into this life of having a child so I could tie him down. So he decided to leave me while I’m in my last trimester. He even said that he would give up his rights as a father to make it easy for me and our baby. I feel so betrayed and most of all, CONFUSED. One day we are a happy family, next day I wake up and it’s gone. He’s already filed for divorce and I have no clue where to go from here. I don’t understand why he would fight so hard to get custody for his son but so willing to give up his rights for his daughter. I didn’t see this coming at all. He said I make his miserable and unhappy. I am so lost……
