I Am Unhappily Married

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,905 People

    Sometimes I find myself parked outside the

    house, car turned off, just sitting in the car. And I'll sit like this sometimes for 45 minutes. It's like I know the concept of individuality, the idea of "me", has to be left by the front door. I seriously do not want to go inside.

    My husband has become a complete ***.

    He comes home from work, eats and right after, he gets his laptop and puts on his earbuds and is "gone" for the rest of the night. OR, he falls asleep on the couch, either way, I am left alone. We have grown apart so much over the years that he is a complete stranger to me and...

    Last night was rough.

    I don't know why he had to lose his cool the way he did. I damn well know I didn't deserve any of his frustrations from work being taken out on me. He was practically finding things to be angry about and completely shot down any efforts I've put in this week. Everything I say...

    It makes me sad how so many years spent

    together just ceases to exist. Separate rooms, barely words spoken, polite nods. I accept my part in the dissolution of this marriage, but I still grieve for what it was at one time. How far we have drifted from that couple we once were. Did we abandon love or did it abandon...

    This is too hard. At can't

    even have a decent family outing without him being ridiculously pessimistic and critical. And then when I can't take it anymore it becomes about how I said I'd be more patient with him as a means of gratitude for his joining us.

    My husband and I agreed to a semi-separation

    and go to marriage counseling - in an effort to save our marriage. We will stay in separate bedrooms and co-parent our children, whom we both love dearly. I am wondering how long this arrangement will work. Any thoughts?

    Right now. I'm not exactly hating my husband.

    Sometimes I do. I feel bad for it. He's a good man. But sometimes he's a complete jerk. The life we've lived has been the life he wanted. I wasn't strong enough to resist and I thought I was doing the right thing. But I've been miserable for 26 years I don't believe in divorce...

    My husband works all the time.

    I know he works for the family and all. But he neglects me all the time. I've grown further and further apart from him. I've spoken to him about my feelings, but he just dismisses everything I say. Nothing is getting better. It hurts feeling alone and neglected.

    My husband doesn't want to go out with me,

    he prefers to just watch tv or listen to his podcasts. We don't do anything fun, but we also don't enjoy doing things together. Part of the reason he doesn't want to go out is because he wants to save money. He doesn't even care to clean or cook unless I ask him to. I am so...

    My birthday is coming up.

    My husband doesn't acknowledge it and seems to pick an argument with me around it. Last year was my 40th birthday and he didn't get me anything...no cake or card...it makes me sad to think about it. My sister brought me a cupcake the next day.
