Dear Glo­ria

Best - - CONTENTS -

My youngest daugh­ter re­cently went to univer­sity, and last week my hus­band ad­mit­ted he’s been un­happy for years. He was only wait­ing for her to move out to leave me. I feel bereft – I was al­ready dread­ing the house be­ing empty, and the thought of be­ing com­pletely alone is too much to bear. I think the big­gest shock of all is that I had no idea that he was mis­er­able. I don’t know what to do. Karen, Fife I’m afraid that a hus­band want­ing free­dom when the chil­dren are grown is one of the old­est sto­ries around. If you had no idea that he was so un­happy, it’s worth­while try­ing me­di­a­tion. It may help you to get to the root of the prob­lem and why he is mis­er­able, and see if there is any way to save your re­la­tion­ship. Then, at least, you will know the truth and what fu­ture course you have to take. I un­der­stand your

shock but, please be­lieve me when I say that, what­ever the out­come, time is a great healer.
