  • Read "the Book of mom" by Taylor Wilshire. It is a funny novel that offers marriage counseling and insight into marriage. It saved a mom's marriage in our book club.

  • Talk with your husband and see if he wants to save the marriage. If so, then start getting to know one another all over again and fall in love all over again. It can be fun and can strengthen the marriage. There are some great books out there. Check your library to see if they have some. There may even be great online articles that can help.

  • Before you go too much further I think too that counselling for yourself first and then with your husband would be good for you. how to make it work depends on what's happened and what your hopes and needs from a husband are.

  • Go to a marriage class at church. When you start to involve God in your relationships, something magical happens because you do it the way that we were made to do it. It's not going to be easy just because God's in it, but something magical will happen! I don't mean to sound preachy, but for real. I'm married, and if it weren't for the church, we would not be!!
