I believe I would always love my kid unconditionally no matter what. It is not that my child has done anything special to make me love him more than my husband. The kid came from my body. I am his mother. We are related by blood. My husband and I are linked by a piece of paper. No matter what happens in the world, my kid will forever be my kid. But, my husband may not be my husband forever.

While I do not doubt his love for me and our family now, I just want to be mentally prepared for the day when he doesn’t love me anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised. I would be able to cope. I still have my kid.

I blame him for making me feel this way. If he had never threatened me with the D word, I would never have created this shield to protect myself. While I understand people can only make you feel a certain way if you allow them to, I can’t help but feel insecure. With all my heart, I hope this is a passing phase as I still love him very much.

While I do not doubt his love for me and our family now, I just want to be mentally prepared for the day when he doesn’t love me anymore.
