How do you break the cycle?

Me and my DH love each other but we go through this cycle of getting into a huge over nothing, then one of us leaving and then coming back and this being OK for a while then it starting all over again. It is not good for us or our son. What can we do or should we just end it for good?

  • Yikes.. honey... what can you do?? Counseling!! Do you love him? If you do then counseling may help. If you don't then no amount of counseling will save the marriage. Fighting, breaking up then getting back sounds very adolescent. Something you'd do in high school, because you don't know how to handle a disagreement so you just break up. (I remember doing this many times). Obviously, you're not teens anymore, so are you getting back together out of convenience. I've done that too. You don't really want to be together, so you split up but then you get lonely, or you can't afford it so you fall back into the routine that seems comfortable. You need figure out which one you are and only then can you decide to make it work or end it. Good Luck :)
