I have thought about sending this letter for quite a while.

My husband and I are not long married. We didn't have the easiest dating relationship and I have probably put up with things that others wouldn't. He is a good, caring man but is quite closed off and does not talk to anyone about feelings or events, and there have been many different things over the years which have tested us as a couple, including illness and fertility issues.H

is best friend took his life through suicide and this has had a significant impact on our relationship. I can see he is heartbroken.
