A letter from a reader:
I have been a long-time reader of Recipe Rifle and now the Spike and I was wondering if the lovely Spike community would be able to give me some advice?
My husband of 21 years has just told me he is going to move out and I just don’t know how to begin to deal with this and face a scary new future on my own (at the age of 52). Up until this year there was no question we wouldn’t grow old together. Our son is in his final year of school and about to go into an assessment period so we think we might wait a few weeks before telling him.
I don’t know. Is this wise? I don’t want my husband to go but he’s clearly made up his mind so are we better just getting on with it?
And then what do I do?? I have some wonderful friends supporting me but they can only do so much, can’t they? Most of it is up to me I think.
Do I need to say more?
