Dear Carolyn: My husband is leaving me because he’s in love with someone else. I’m 29 weeks pregnant, we have a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old, and we just moved to a different state a few months ago. Now I’m in a new state without friends or family, pregnant and abandoned by my husband, trying to explain to my children why daddy won’t come home anymore.

I’m just shattered. I have no one to turn to right now, and my friends and family are all in a completely different state. I want to move back but how would that even work? I’m not even sure my old job would rehire me since I trained my replacement, and I’m pregnant, I don’t even know how I’d begin a job search.

Please tell me it gets better, because I’m reeling and I don’t know what to do. — Reeling
