My husband has left our home three times. Once October 2002 for 3 days, then in May 2003 for 2 weeks and now he left on September 9 taking all his belongings this time as well as putting a restraing order against me so that I may not contact him. We are expecting a baby January 21, 2004 & have a 9 month old daughter. We are expecting again January 21, 2004. I have two daughters from a previous marriage that love my husband as their own Daddy. There has been infidelity in our marriage on both our parts. I have repented & changed my ways & have been 100% faithful to my husband since my infidelity. My husband has been unfaithful as recent as June of this year. I have reason to believe that there may be another woman involved in this recent split. We do have problems that I want to work through. I do not want to give up on my marriage. I love my husband & desperately want my family reunited. I am severly depressed through this seperation. There is also a man who represents himself as a servant of God (he is a pastor & my husband's friend) who has been encouraging my husband to seek divorce instead of restore our marriage. I believe he is also the person who advised my husband to seek the restraining order. Please, pray for our family. Pray that God changes my husbands heart & restores our marriage. Pray that God will strengthen our marriage & make us better parents & spouses to eachother. Also, please pray that the influence of this "Pastor" is bound & that Satan may not use him to destroy our marriage.

Thank you,

Candi

I am so terribly sorry, deary. Even though times are tough, you need to be there for your children. I will pray for you, and I hope that you find some solice in all this chaos. I think your husband getting a restraining order against you is taking it to the extreme. You should get a good lawyer - he can be in some serious trouble for just abondoning you and your children, which is ludicris anyway. Your pastor encouraging him to leave you is even more insane - what could your pastor possibly have to gain from your husband leaving, other than getting himself into trouble? I dont know the whole story, but something just doesnt sound right.

I believe that you will come out of this better and stronger. Just think about whats best for you and your children right now. Good luck and hugs.
