My husband and I have been separated, though not legally, for 2 years. He took a job in another state and I didn't want to go. The marriage was not going well and I wasn't willing to leave my entire family and support system. My daughter was 7 months old when he left. For the last 2 years he has been a good father considering the circumstances. I took her there to visit as much as possible. He came here. They speak on the phone etc. He wanted me to move there and I agreed to give it a try. It lasted a week before I moved back. Now he won't speak to me or her. I know he is angry with me, but I'm so disappointed that he won't speak to her. I told him before I left that I would continue to do anything and everything to help their relationship. She's only 2.5 now so it's a bit more difficult since she can't travel alone. He wants nothing to do with her. I don't know what to do. I can't force him to see her and speak to her. I know that he thinks he is punishing me. Perhaps he thinks I'll move back. Any advice? It has been almost a month since I left. I'm just so sad for her. I know that she has never really been use to living with her father so it's not difficult for her. It probably doesn't seem any different. Eventually she will notice. I just wish I could do something to change his mind.
