What does the rest of the year hold for me? I was born Apr. 2 1974,my husband on July 1 1975.
We have been married for 22 years but he has cheated numerous times lately last year with his co-worker. I am ready to give up but for the sake of the kids I have given him lots of chances. Do I need to hold on or can I just give up on the relationship? I don't see any effort on his part to change at all. Please any advice would be quite appreciated. Thank you and God bless.

Actually there's no need holding on to this relationship. Just think straight on this and figure out if it's possible for him to come back on earth. I believe your kids would understand and support you.
Answered by Aprilette from PHILIPPINES | Jul. 06, 2017 21:48

Thanks Cathy, I appreciate your quick response. May I know if I will get a good job this year since my previous job contract just ended last month. I plan to go a friend's wedding in Australia by November, would this be a good move? At least the travel would do me some good and might help to take my mind off my martial problems. Lastly we just made a down payment on a new house this month and we plan to move in next month. Would that be good time? If not, can you suggest other dates? Thank you so much for your help. Take care and God bless.
Answered by Cathy from USA | Jul. 07, 2017 01:34

Aprilette, Your career luck is a fall-rise pattern. You may meet some difficulties at first, but at last you will get what you want. Remember to think through what's your true wish and then make the right choice.
Taking a travel in November is a good choice. You may leave on November 3rd, 8th, 9th, 23rd, 24th or 30th.
Moving into new house on 8th, 17th, 20th, 21st, 29th in August is auspicious.
