Laura Munson's husband told her, "'I don't love you anymore. I'm not sure I ever did.' Her response? 'I don't buy it,' and then she gave her husband six months to sort out his issues." The result landed her a book deal. Read more here.


What would you do if your husband ever said that to you?

Oh ouch!
I guess we would talk & see why he felt that way.
See if counseling, gertting help was an option.
If he wanted out .. then that's what we would do.
I mean even if I loved him .. it's his choice you know :).

If my husband said that to me, my initial reaction would be something very unladylike, lol, but once I determined he was

Honestly...the first thing I'd likely do is dot his eye for being such an insensitive jerk!


Then....I'd probably say nearly the same thing the author did....I think I would say...."I dont buy it...I dont beleive that all the passion, joy, sacrifice, hard work, laughter and happy tears on your part (and our part) were all part of some passing trend and not true love".


I think I would tell him that before I allowed him to terminate the life we worked so hard to build, the life he so regulary claimed to love that he needed to seek counseling to understand the whys and hows of his new feelings. And that after time in counseling, if he could show me how everything we felt...and everything we built together was based on something other than true love he could go on his way to other things with my blessing.

I'd say some not so nice words, I'm sure after I found out he wasn't joking. I would also try counseling and do what I could on my end.

This happened to my aunt actually. They were together 10 years and her partner sat up one morning and said "I don't love you and I don't know if I ever did." Completely left field. The partner was interested in someone else and my aunt told her that this other person was just playing games with her. A few months after that conversation, her SO called and tried to gain her back, telling her that the other woman was playing games with her. I don't know what steps they took but they split up and have been for over 5 years.

because I think it takes two to keep a marriage going.
Certainly does to make it work :)
