Work Was Everything . . .
. . . Until my wife fell in love
with someone else. She says she learned to be alone for the past 10 years of our marriage because even when I was home, I was still working. No infidelity occurred, just emotional attachment to someone who paid more attention to her than I did. Lasted about two months, but unfortunately, she still works with him. Thought I was doing what I was supposed to do to provide a better life for our family of 5 great kids. No apology, no sign of remorse, but I now have to learn to trust her again. She has to forgive the physical push-n-pull that occurred when all was revealed. Although 7 months of marriage counseling has gone by, and we seem to communicate very well about everything else, she is unable to express how she feels and verbally commit to making our marriage work. She continues to be indifferent, inconsiderate and shows no affection towards me. Hello, goodbye, good morning, good night kisses remain cold. But for occasional intimacy, she sleeps on the edge of our bed. Physical touch has almost disappeared. My life is lonely. I'm not sure how much longer I can withstand the bitter treatment.
