“DEAR ABBY: I have wanted to write you for some time and never had the courage, but now I really need some advice, so here goes:
I married “Wyatt” five years ago. I have two children from a previous marriage, a 20-year-old (not living at home) and a 17-year-old son who has just left because of my husband. I love my children dearly, and I did love Wyatt. But every hurtful, spiteful, mean thing he has said to them has slowly chipped away at any feelings that I had for him. Abby, I want to leave my husband and get an apartment for myself and my son. How do I do it? How do I tell him I want out without starting a war?”
I know you didn’t write this, but you could have.
I wish you did.
