mid life crises
I have been married for 10 years. About a month before my husband turned 35 he became very depressed. He told me he was sick of everything and that he does not know what he wants anymore. He told me that he does not love me but does still have feelings for me. We have two kids. He was also studing for exams so i thought it was stress. I then also found out that he had befriended a girl at work, who was now giving him all the attention he so called needed and wasnt getting from me. No sex involved as far as i have been told. I have tried making life easy for him i have given him all the attention i possibly can, but it feels to me as if he is in his own world. Should i be patient?

Dear Cins
I think you should see a marriage counsellor - going alone is ok if he does not want to go with you. This will help you to handle the situation and will be a support structure for you in a very difficult time.
