How to find the courage to leave my husband if I can’t see any good future together?

Question

Hello! I have a little 3 year old son who is very autistic (he gets anxious all the time, doesn’t talk properly still, gets scared of strangers.) My son is very close to his father, but he (my husband) spends his free time somewhere else but home. He pretends to be working overtime, but I don’t believe it because sometimes he can be gone until midnight and at the end of the month his salary isn’t different than normal. He doesn’t even want to explain anything. I am financially independent from him as I work from home, but I am afraid if I divorce him it will be too difficult for our son. What would you do in this situation? I see no future with my husband and it gets worse every day, but I can’t find the courage to leave him. Please help me to make a right decision!

  1. Your son won’t be happy if you are not! Do what your heart tells you. It’s never too late to begin a new life!

  2. I agree that it looks like you have no future together. I don’t know the whole story but I think to divorce would be for the best…

  3. It might be just a bad period in your life. Don’t rush to divorce, it makes sense to find a good therapist and see if you can save your relationship.

  4. I think that you should speak to your husband. Maybe he is very stressed and that’s why doesn’t want to go home early after work. You can’t blame him without any proof and divorce just because of your prejudice. You should try to understand each other, because you son needs both of you. Good luck!

  5. I am going to share with you my experience… So I broke up with my husband when my daughter was 2 month old! I didn’t work at that moment but I honestly started feeling better when he left. My mother helped me with everything and then eventually I got a part time job.  Just do whatever you feel would make you happier!

  6. I am very grateful for everyone for your answers, though they are very different. I need to think about everything, but thank you for your support anyway! Hugs to everyone!
