        he's not. He knows I would take him back (probably, but I might be angry if it came to him asking for that). So, yes, we're in limbo but we see each other all the time! He works constantly, travels too, and his spare time he is at our house doing stuff with the kids or going out to dinner with me. I know, it seems strange.

            stronger, joined a great exercise class, met a nice group of friends who are so supportive and fun to be with, and I actually don't mind that he wants to be around. And if I do meet someone else, I will explore that. However, I'm not actively looking, but if it happened that would be nice. He would just have to realize that I'm not there anymore. We do a lot for each other. He is always there if we need him, very involved with the kids and their needs, we always ask each other if we need something from the supermarket, etc. It's weird, but friendly. I think he just needed a break - it's weakness, but I guess some people are weaker than others. Been married 22 yrs. by the way.
