Why should she give me a chance?
Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Male
Hi, I'm a 33yr old man, that's in dire need of help. I lied to my "now"-ex-girlfriend about working. We've been broken up for a little over 4 weeks. This is the second time I have lied to her in our 6yr relationship. We have 2 very young children together, one is 5mos, the other is 3yrs,-with autism. I'm just glad that she didn't kick me out, though she did break up w/me. Anyway, I know that I need to somehow prove that I'll never lie to her again, and I know its going to take some time. I've been taking on just about every single houshold chore, plus taking good care of the kids while she's out. When we'er talking about he kids...everthings fine, but if I bring up "us" she turns into satan. She was out of work due to pregnancy, and lost her job because she went over the 12wk limit for pregnancy leave from work. Now that we're both working again, I don't see her much. Every time I ask her for just one final chance. She says: "Why should I give you a last chance"? I honestly don't know what to say to her. I'm trying to be as confident, and optimistic as possible about this, but I'm totally lost without her.
She should give you a chance because you love her, the children would be better off, and two can live cheaper than one.
Remember it's only been a short while and she may change her mind.
Good luck! George
