Can you actually believe someone would do that to a child?

When I was still with my husband, he was playing with my DD Delilah in the playroom. I was in the office (which was on the same level of the house) and I'd just finished up and I was going to make dinner. I walked into the hallway heading towards the stairs, and I saw in the playroom my husband tripped over Delilah and fell on top of her. I went in to help him get up and I picked up my daughter and held her in my arms. He told me the story of how he fell, and I said to her that daddy was sorry and stuff. I asked my husband to tell her he's sorry, but he just walked out. he went to our bedroom and I guess he hurt his knee. he didn't come down until dinner was over. Delilah just sat quietly in the living room watching TV while I was making dinner. I sat Delilah at the table before dinner started and went to my husband to talk to him. He said he didn't wanna talk about it, so I left him alone. This was one of the reasons why I separated from him. He wouldn't say sorry to Delilah. i felt so bad for her. once Delilah was in bed, I went to talk to him again and I saw he was packing a duffel bag. I asked where he was going and he said to a friends house for a while. I didnt ask why he was leaving though. I was just so upset, and I'm still upset to this day. That happened about a year and a half ago.frown minii just needed to vent about it.

There is more to the story. once he came back, i ttalked to him, and he said that his grandmother passed away, and she and him were really close. when he fell, he felt that if he said sorry, he would be killing delilah.

     Wow. I hope he talks to a therapist. It sounds like he needs one.

    There must be more because I don't think tripping and falling on your child calls for divorce...

     That's really sad for your daughter.  I'm a little confused too though.
