My husband and I have been together for 11 years, married for 8. We have one child together 9 years old. 2 months ago he told me he wanted out. He said he wanted a divorce, that he has felt this way for the last 5 or 6 years. He also said that he loves me, but he's not in love with me, and doesn't know if he ever was. He even went as far as to say he never wanted to marry me, because we married young at 20 and 21. We fought all the time, he felt like I tried to be his mother instead of his wife, which has created a lot of anger and resentment towards me from him. He's also said that he hates me or has hate towards me.

You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
