Marriage problems!!!
Hi there, i'm in need of some good advice, i don't know who to talk to about this.
I have been married for 5 years and have a son of 4.
My wife has just told me last night that she doesn't know if she loves me anymore.
The worst part is that wev'e been married all this time and she has now decided after all this time to tell me she married me, because she was pregnant. She also has said she wants to stay together for our son and doesn't want to dissapoint her parents with news of our problems. So i'm stuck with all this bad news and i don't know what's the next step.
Am i supposed to live with her and wait for her to decide when she's had enough, am i gonna wait for her to tell me one day she's found another man, or watch the woman i love and keep a distance, as i don't know whether i can touch her or not.
Please, i need some help.

It surly sounds as if she has been unfair not to admit this before now, and to do so in a rather unhelpful way. Shouldn't the two of you become involved in marriage counselling, to better understand yourselves, each other, and the situation ? This step doesn't require you two to stay together, but at least then, if you do decide to split, it can be on more rational grounds, and with a better capacity in each of you to avoid reaching such a situation again, and managing a less bitter and damaging parting this time.
