“My wife and I have been separated for about 3 months. My wife has filed for divorce and I am awaiting receipt of the papers. As a soon-to-be ex-husband, I am grappling with bitterness over the divorce and the fact that my wife is apparently very easily moving through her decision to end our marriage. I’m trying to come to grips with knowing that one day my wife will be with someone else. How does God want me to behave toward her during this time, and how do I stay honoring to God amidst these feelings of anger and frustration. I don’t want to get divorced.”
“How can my husband and I get on the same page as far as finances and budgeting? I take care of the bills. I tell him how much money we have, when we need to watch our spending and things like that but he doesn’t seem to listen. Then when there’s not enough in our bank account, I let him know about it sometimes in not such a nice way and he then questions why we have a money short-fall, and blames me. I’ve tried everything I know to get him to work with me to pay off our debts and work within a budget, and I’m just getting nowhere. Every time we talk about finances it turns into World War 3. Do you have any ideas as to what or how I can do this?”
“My self-esteem is suffering to say the least. My boyfriend of 3 years recently broke up with me. He said it was because he is no longer attracted to me. I know it was the best thing for both of us, but now I feel like no one will ever be attracted to me again. What can I do to get past the hurt?”
