DEAR DEIDRE: IF I decide to leave my husband, which I am seriously thinking about, shall I wait until after Christmas for our children’s sake?
I am 31, he’s 33, and our girls are ten and seven. I am so unhappy. He does not respect me and puts me down.

I gave up work to look after the girls and he constantly reminds me I contribute nothing to the family.
When the kids are in bed I avoid being in the same room. Do I have one last family Christmas and then separate?
DEIDRE SAYS: Because it is so close now, I guess it is best to get Christmas out of the way.
But start making plans so you can make a fresh start in the New Year. That in itself will help you cope these last few weeks.
