I want to leave my husband but I worry about what'll happen to my business

DEAR DEIDRE: I WANT to end my marriage but worry about what will happen to my business if I divorce my husband.

I’m 47 and he is 49. We have been together for 20 years but there is no cuddling or kissing these days and no affection. He only wants sex, with no thought about my needs.

I started my own cleaning company a decade ago and it has been a huge success.

I’ve worked hard to get the business up and running again after lockdown ended – without any help from my husband.

I don’t think I can carry on as we are and we’ve been distant for years.

He always promises to change if I complain but that never lasts long.

Before you go ahead, try talking one last time. If you tell him what you are planning, it might just give him the jolt he needs to make permanent changes.
