I panicked and ruined our new marriage

DEAR ABBY: Three weeks after I met my love, he proposed. We got married four months later.

We had not discussed finances, but he knew my income was higher than his. (We are both retired and widowed when we met.)

After nine months of marriage, we got into some financial trouble, and instead of sitting down to discuss it with him, I did what I usually do when I get scared: I frolic.

I asked him to go and seek divorce.

Since then, I have realized that I still love him and want him in the last chapter of my life. I know I hurt him and I want to make up with him, but he’s afraid I’ll ask him to go again. I also love his family and miss them all very much.
