Reader Q + A | Why Do Parents Walk Away From Their Children?

Dear Reader,

Thanks for being brave enough to ask this question! So many of us are nervous or scared to invite "real life" conversations + I applaud you for being the one to get the ball rolling! There are many reasons why parents walk out on their families, but the root of all of these reasons (I believe)  is pain.  Let's think about several different situations that most likely come to mind when you think of an absentee parent

Yesterday, we dealt with some of the things newlyweds tend to go through when starting their lives together. Today I want to talk to you about dealing with a marriage that’s in crisis.

So how do you recover from this point in marriage? How do you repair brokenness? Is it too late?
