should I go or sshould I stay
I've been married for 6 years. The last year there's been numerous fights between my husband and me, mainly about my friends. Also in the past year I discovered that I have no feelings left for my husband accept for feeling sorry for him because I can't give him the love he deserves. Lately I can't even stand him touching me because I feel nothing. I'm thinking about a divorce very strongly at this stage and have already got a plce to rent. The thing making my dicision terribly difficult is the fact that I have a four year old son who loves his father very much. But what if I stay and in ten years time I discover I've thrown my life away to not hurt my son.

Dear marietjie,
Wouldn't it be best to see a mariage counsellor, first, to ensure hat you fully understand how this went wrong, and where the love went, and to see whether the two of you can't sort this out. Divorce should surely only be seriously thought of, in a situation like this, if you have both sincerely worked in marriage counselling and have agreed that it is impossible to put things right.
