seperation
Hi there, I found out that my husband was meeting another woman behind my back for the last 6 months (he says they never slept together). Our marriage has been rocky from the start but the problem is we have 2 small children.
I feel that divorce is too final and I was wondering if anyone else out there is seperated and does it work? my husband is going to stay in JHB and my children and I are going to Durban as most of my support system is there. I am against seperation because while i might remain faithfull to him, he might be messing around with goodness knows who getting goodness knows what. I am so stuck can anyone please help?

Dear brittany,
let's see what our other readers can offer, from their own experiences. Separation may give you a chance to find out what it is like to live without him, but it doesn't actually contribute anything specifically towards solving the problems within the marriage itself. What has been his attitude towards the situation that arose --- does he say that the relationship with the other woman is ended ? Does he say he intends to avoid such entanglements ? And had he any willingness to admit having caused problems, and to be prepared, say with mariage counselling, to work towards solving them ?
