An acquaintance of mine just wrote to our mom's group and said that her dh wants to just be friends. He said they can be best friends and that nothing will change between them as far as getting along. She has a son who is autistic and another younger child. She has no job, and has to find a job at night so that she can be home during the day with her autistic son. I was floored that he just came home and said he wanted to be friends. He already is not very supportive to her in caring for their autistic son, and now she's got no job and two children. I can't imagine what it would feel like to have that happen one day. They have had a rough year financially, and I guess he just couldn't take the struggle any longer. Anyway, just wanted to share this so that people can keep her in their thoughts. I'm afraid she has a long road ahead of her.
