Fear of the unknown

Here goes.  How do you tell someone you’ve been married to for 33 years that you want a divorce? I’m afraid of his reaction. I don’t know if we would be able to talk things over rationally or if he would lose it.  Should I be face to face, alone, or have someone with me? Should I leave and have him served with papers? Don’t know where to start.  How did you ladies get through it?
