I don't love my husband any more


February 04, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I have been married for 17 years, but now I do not have any feelings for my husband. I don't love him anymore. What should I do?


Dear M.C.,

The question I wish to ask you is this, were you truly ever in love with this man? You have been married to him, but perhaps the love was never really there.

And if you were to say that you were in love, what has caused you to stop loving him?

Is it something he has done, or is it that you are seeing another man who is showing more interest in you and has caused you to cease loving your husband?

Now, please understand that there is a possibility that a woman would turn from her man and genuinely stop loving him if he has been abusing her verbally and physically.

She may stop loving him if he does not support his children and the home in general. She may stop loving him, also, if he doesn't carry out his manly responsibilities, so to speak.

So I ask the question, what is your true story? Have you and your husband, grown apart? What do you believe should happen to make you start loving this man again?

Perhaps what you should do is to discuss this matter with your husband and both of you should make an appointment to see your family counsellor, and after you have spoken to the counsellor, you should be in a better position to know what to do.

Let me hear from you again.
