I am staying in my marriage for my son ... am I kidding myself and just wasting my time?
We have been married for 16 years and almost all of them have been unhappy. My son is 16 years old and, don't ask me why, we are getting ready to adopt another 8 year old boy, his mom abandoned him. I have always wanted to be there for my son and not be a part time dad, that is why I have stuck it out. In the mean time, I have really tried to make the best of my marriage but little has changed. I am torn between upholding my vows and responsibilities to my son, and soon to be adopted son, and really wanting out of this marriage.
