    I Want Out, But....

    Two years ago my husband betrayed me. The hurt was so deep, my love for him changed and continues to change. I love him for what he is but I don't want to be married to him anymore. I don't believe he loves me as much as he loved the other woman. We moved when he went full...

    I wasn't always unhappy.

    I've tried very hard over the years to make my husband happy and to support him in everything he did. I'm not perfect by any means and I know I have failed him along the way a time or two but I feel like he has broken my heart and me a little bit at a time over the past 20 years...

    everyday awkward silences,

    ignorance is bliss, tension in convo, waiting to start an argument, I'm crying nearly all the time, trying to get used to everything, every minute, every thing is making me consider ending it all now rather than wait it out for whenever it has to happen.

    My idea of marriage and the reality of it (for

    me) are so far off the mark that I don't consider myself to be married. Is that weird? Maybe it should be ended. I may or may not ever be with someone again but isn't it better to be alone than to settle for crumbs? I'm sure he would see it differently.
