Heather I am the LAST person who should be giving relationship advice... ( two failed marriages ). But on this one I think I can help. I think the break could be a good idea as long as it doesn't go on to long. I know for a fact a cooling off period would have saved both my marriages. We just never took one. Just don't let the break go to long or you might not get back to where you were. Whats to long? I don't know. LOL. A couple weeks maybe? Who knows. But sounds like you do need a cooling off period, both of you. Let each of you see what you are missing out on by not being together. Sounds like you might be coming to grips with that faster than he is. Which is okay, just don't give in on everything to get him back. It takes two to tango. He has made mistakes too, I'm sure. And who knows, it the time you're apart you might realize that there are better fish out there. My mom always used to tell my sister,..... you have to kiss alot of frogs to find that prince.
