But remember to be keep calm and not be emotional while stating your true intentions. Choose a much appropriate environment that will place you two in a relaxing mood so as to make communication of the message and its subsequent receipt effective as much as possible.

Once you’ve managed to tell your husband all there is to be said, be sure to detach yourself from him if the news was not taken well by him. By so speaking, he may have his reservations regarding what you’ve told him and some men might try to seek answers from you by being violent and utilizing threats. He will feel hurt at most, crashed, and even broken down into pieces emotionally and physically.
