  • Hi Lexy - I'm so sorry for all that you're trying to deal with right now. I think that you're on the right track trying to keep your family together, instead of jumping into a divorce. If your husband won't go with you for counseling, I would seek out support and counseling for yourself through the army. I believe that they do offer support services for all army families, especially when a family member has been deployed. You're asking some very good questions, and I hope that you can receive the support and answers you need. You're in my prayers Lexy.

  • I guess I'm confused what paper did you get in December that would make him want a divorce?? Just tell him straight out to try counseling and if it doesn't work you will then consent to a divorce. If that's how you feel.

  • I would tell him that you want try counseling if for no other reason than to know why he wants a divorce. Remind him that you have kids and want make what ever happens amicable and honest. he needs to explain why he wants a divorce. The kids need to know to why daddy is wanting this too. At least see if he could write it in a letter. He has a responsability to tell you why he wants an divorce.
