My husband has been talking (texting, talking, sending pictures/video) for over three years now with this one lady.  He says they are just friends and he only talks with her because I dont seem to get him.  He has done the EFT program and has said he has realized that he is no longer in love with me.  I said you seem to be going through a mid life crisis and he said he is having a mid life awaking.

We have a ton of financial problems and he now works in another city and comes back to the house over the weekend to be with the kids.  The kids (13 and 19) are hurt, confused and don't want to see him.  He hardly ever reaches out to communicate with them, he says I tried and let a couple messages.  He says he has sacrafits everything, living in a small room, alone all the time just to make money for the family. He was fired from his last job and couldn't find work nearby.  He said I didn't give him any support (sex) when he was jobless and such.  (2ysagonow)

It has been 10 months since he has informed me of his feelings, and I am a roller coaster of emotions.  My 13yo has been making BAD decisions and I am trying my best.

Rhonda Bennett, M.A.

Thank you for contacting me. I''m sorry for what you''re going through. The question you have to ask yourself is are you better off with or without your husband. He has obviously distanced himself from you and has a relationship with another woman; whether it''s just emotional or sexual, he is not doing anything to make your marriage work.

You need to have a serious talk with him about the future of your marriage. Living in a loveless marriage is not a good example to set for your children. If your husband is not open to marriage counseling, then you have some choices to make.

I do online, live counseling at Please contact me there if you would like to talk further. I know you''re hurting. Let me help you sort things out. My summer rate is only $2.25 per minute. If you remind me of your letter entitled "Just Friends", I will give you a discounted rate of $2.00 per minute.

Rhonda Bennett, M.A.
