I Don't Love You Anymore

"I don't love you anymore." Those are really tough words to hear. Laura A. Munson's response to them is must-read stuff for anyone whose once-great marriage has hit a rocky patch in the road.

Munson's article in the NY Times is a great read. While she came to it down a different path, what she did is assume love. She asked herself why her husband would say those words if he still loved her. It took a lot of the horrible sting out of the words and showed her what she needed to do next.

It saved their marriage.

That is an amazing story. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been for her to stick to her guns and let him work thru his own problems.

It did work out for them, but do you recommend this process?
