I Am Married But Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 16,298 People

    I consider myself a strong independent woman,

    but tonight is hard. Not for any reason out of the ordinary. Maybe it's because he is away tonight. Maybe it's because I just made myself a drink. Maybe it's because it the holidays. Maybe it's because I know my life is about to get very difficult once the divorce process starts...

    It's amazing how you can think you are

    so close to someone only to have them grow into a total stranger. Talking to the person you started a family with shouldnt feel awkward.

    It is a strange to be Married

    and yet feel lonely . It is like I am living with a roommate instead of a Friend and a lover. I do not want to leave but I am tired of this lonely feeling . My wife says everything is fine but I do not think so .

    Isn't it ironic that the only person

    who can make you really happy in the same person who makes you sad and lonely.

    So, my wife is a drunk.

    She is on a week long bender. She's been to rehab, we see how effectual that was. I've fought with her, hid her keys because she will drive drunk to get more, I park in the way so she cant leave, she runs into my truck, disabke her car, she walks to the store, called the cops on...

    Wisdom Of Oscar Wilde

    He sums up my marital situation perfectly. "A bore is someone who deprives you of solitude, without providing you with company."

    This morning I wake up

    and he is beside me sleeping away. He only rolls over for a brief moment to tell me he was up till 5 am. And that he expects me to try and keep the kids quiet. I think not, we are currently having a dance party.

    I Asked For A Hug

    This morning, the need to be held was so overwhelming, I didn't think I could bear it. I kept looking at my husband, wondering if I should ask for a hug. There is no physical contact between us for years, and it does my self esteem no good, when I have to ask my own husband to...

    My husband only spends time with friends

    and no time with my baby and me. The time he is home, he is working on the computer and does not like to be bothered at all. As soon as a friend calls to do something, he drops everything and runs to go out with them. You should see the excitement and desperation. I do not mind...

    Make no mistake. I am still married

    and I still feel isolated in my marriage. But things have gotten better. Not because my husband has matured as a person or become compassionate towards me. I got a "promotion" in November of last year. My new work schedule means I spend a lot less time with him. Two days a week...

    Finally got some time to do things I enjoy. Had a nice sleep. All those things. Then my husband comes home.... and while backing into his parking spot, he hit my truck. You know, that big black thing RIGHT THERE. To make it even better, he ripped of a piece of the fiberglass...

    Who ever thought that

    when they got married they would eventually find themselves feeling like the loneliest person on earth? I have too much life left in me and too much love to give to continue down this path.

    I wake up every morning crying.

    I am having trouble accepting that my marriage is sexless. I don't believe in divorce or infidelity. So I know I have to find acceptance. It's just so hard. We never touch, cuddle, there's 2 feet between us every night in bed. I can not even talk about this with him unless I...

    He is gone so often,

    and even when he's here he isn't present, that I have started to forget what it was like to actually miss him. There is a numbness that grew without me noticing over time. Like when your foot falls asleep and you suddenly have to get up for something. You didn't notice it was...

    My story is long but in a nut shell,

    I made a very poor choice when i got married in Sept. I used a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Now I feel like nothing I say is understood. He's all redneck and I'm more music and old movies. Add a 5yo kid and WOW you got a party!

    I am extremely frustrated with my marriage.

    I know that all relationships go through up and downs. But we have been on a down far to long. My husband hasn't said I love you, touched me, or shown any type of affection for over a week now. And I am beginning to not care. That's what is scaring me the most. He can tell. I...

    I've been married 24 yrs this year.

    During this time, I totally devoted my life to being a loyal wife and a good mother. Now that my baby is 17, we finally have time for us. But we have nothing in common. Being total opposites has helped us in the past. We kind of leveled each other out. Now, it's working against...

    Time Wasted

    I married way too young, at the age of 19. I was an insecure, scared child at the time, and all I knew was that I loved this fun-loving guy and I was comfortable and safe with him. So when he proposed, I said yes, even though I knew I wasn't ready. I didn't want to hurt him, and...

    It's one of those lonely nights again.

    As I sit here having a one sided conversation with my husband, I'm getting very little response in return. Then I wonder why I constantly crave communication from someone else. Someone who is 1,000 miles away but always makes me feel special.
