i have been in a marrige for 30 years my husband got into a fight with one of my sons and he ended up arrested but now none of my kids talk to me because they say i should have left my husband . what should i do.

Hey Anon, 

Naww, we won’t take the responsibility of this decision away from you.

In our opinion, if we tell you what you should do and you do it; your life, your husband’s life, and the lives of your children could possibly change for generations and generations. All we have to base our decision on is:

1)You’ve been married for 30 years

2) Husband fought with son and got arrested

3) Kids won’t talk to you

Just 3 things!

In our opinion, seeking counseling wouldn’t be a bad idea. Find a therapist you feel comfortable explaining the details of your situation too. One who can adequately provide care without giving advice or taking the responsibility of the decision away from you.

Hope this helps,

-Twins
