  • just do it. grab a quiet moment without the kids, and just tell him. sometimes both parties hang on endlessly for whatever reason, waiting (hoping?) for the other to start the process. no one wants a divorce..but it happens. just tell him.

  • Sit down with him, tell him how you're feeling, give him a chance to say what he feels, and talk about it. It's a huge change in both of your lives, and your children, so you're going to have to be gentle about it. Keep your children at the front of your mind through the whole process, always remember it will be much easier if you both keep the best interests of the children in mind. GL

  • Have you tried talking to him about how you feel? Marriage counseling? Working together?

  • I don't think there is a way to tell him without hurting him.but you don't have to be mean.I'd just be honest with him about how you feel.Tell him what you wrote here.

  • "[Insert husband's name], I don't think there's anything left for us anymore. We're just going through the motions and I think that we should get a divorce." Be honest, be direct, and stand up for your feelings.
