My husband left me and our 3 months old baby

My husband left me three weeks ago. He said he was unhappy and does not love me anymore. I recognized my faults in the relationship but he was not the perfect husband either. I did everything to win him back. Since then I went to counseling to work on myself and took care what needed to be taken care of the household while he was gone. He said that no matter what I do he will not change his mind about the divorce. We have a 3 months old son. What should I do?

I am sorry this is happening Niki. This is going to be a very important time for you to really develop your support network of friends and family. Even if that means picking up stakes and relocating.

I would take your husband at his word and begin the hard work of moving on with your life. You can do that only one little step at a time.

You will need to work with an attorney and be very careful what you share with your husband going forward. Separate finances immediately. There are help groups out there to plug into that will help your rebuilding process.

I wish this wasn't happening to you. The good news is your child is too young to have to experience the feelings of guilt and hurt a divorce causes children but that isn't going to make it easier on you for now.

Make sure you have custody, support, and visitation set through the courts. You will need a family attorney for this.
If he's not bending, then you need to move forward as a single parent, with a co-parenting plan in place. You can do this.
