To be blunt...too soon to tell brokeninhalf.
You are so early in. You need not making any decisions. I remember a family member telling me not to make any major decisions while I was in such an emotional state. I don't know if this is good advice or poor advice but I took it and today I am glad about that.
Actions, actions, actions. Watch his actions. Do they match up with his words?
And I would suggest IC for him. That will get to the ROOT of why he made this decision. You can do MC at the same time but really, the A is for him to own and investigate.
Keep reading (both check out the Healing Library). Keep posting.
