I No Longer Think I Can Save This Marriage

When does a person finally say enough is enough. I have known for too long that I have put way more into this marriage than he has. I just kept praying that he would catch up somehow. That somehow he would become sweeter, more loving, more kind, happier, less selfish. It hasnt happened and I don't think it ever will. I am tired of crying and praying and begging and crying. Third marriage. i give up. I'm 42, funny, intelligent, hard worker, mother, sister, daughter and a million other things. I deserve much more.

I hear your pain. I'm sorry. I've been there, just getting out now. I would say to try everything you can first...communicating, counseling. but of course he has to be a willing participate. In time you'll know if your marrige is worth saving or not. Just remember to stand up for yourself lovingly but firmly. best of Luck and God Bless. Marie

then maybe you should go get so much more!

I am sorry you are having a hard time.<br />

Keep trying your best and praying. Sit and talk to your husband about what bothers you, not in an attacking manner (of course), but in a loving 'I feel this way when (yadda yadda) happens'. If it doesn't work with the issues, then at least you have felt heard. (at least that is how I was raised.)<br />

I hope all goes well for you. May God place you in His loving arms and keep you. God bless you! :-)
