Q&A: Rebuilding our broken marriage

Question: My husband left me six months ago. He said he just can’t be married any longer.

But what they often fail to consider is whether their expectations were realistic in the first place.  Marital bliss is a common dream when people are dating. In those early stages of romance, they can’t imagine feeling discontent with their spouse or their conversations not stretching into the wee hours of the night. And disagreements? What disagreements? But once you’re married, those expectations usually hit a speed bump. There’s the monotony
