My husband says he needs space, he says its not that I dont love you I just need space and you always will be part of my heart. What does that mean? Now we are going to have a conversation. What should I ask? I want to know what I need space means, how do I handle this without pushing him away further? If anyone has gone through this and had husband come back please tell me how to handle this. I do not want to be without him, I love him dearly. Thank youAnswer Question

he needs space, he loves you with 'part' of his heart
he is in another relationship already, or close to it
he has already checked out of the one with you
and he does not have the balls to be totally honest
any signs he is cheating?

^^^Many times "experts" will tell you what they think you want to hear. Especially if you are not sitting in front of them paying them for their advice. Especially if they are affiliated with the church in any way, they will tell women who are even in abusive relationships to stay, try to work it out & "trust God". Because they believe in maintaining a marriage, whether it's healthy or not, or in the best interest of the spouses.
What we are giving you is real life experience and, yes in my experience, when a man backs off & claims to want "space", it's because he's too chicken shit to end things & explain what's really going on.
