I was bluffing when I booked my husband a flat viewing – my plan back fired | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: AS a wake-up call to my husband when I got fed up with him, I arranged a one-bedroomed flat viewing for him – but he put down a full deposit with no hesitation.

We’ve got two children who are hard work.

My elder son is six and has special educational needs. The other is a year old and looks like he is going the same way.

My husband has a fast-food business, which is his world. When he is not there, he is on his phone or the PlayStation.

When we have a day out, he never engages with the children, often sneaking off to the over-18s section of arcades, leaving me with them.

I’m 36 and on depression medication.

My husband is 39. He says I’m unstable and nobody else will want me.
Now he’s talking about a moving-in date.

DEIDRE SAYS:  That’s it then – he’s planning to go.

You deserve better than being gaslighted like this. Being a single parent is hard work but would it feel any different from the support you’re getting now?

You need to talk about the fact he’s not being a responsible dad and that he can’t leave it all to you. It is having an impact on your mental health.

Find a moment to ask whether he is really going to take this flat and give up on his wife and children so easily.

Find help through a counsellor at tavistockrelationships.org (020 7380 1975), even if you go alone.

My Relationship MOT support pack may help you both.
