I Never Would Have Known
My wife and i have been together for 23 years and 2 weeks ago she broke down and asked me for a divorce. We were not talking much and sex was a thing of the past. We had drifted so far apart that anything that was said seemed to be a personal attack on her.
After she told me something inside woke up and i have been trying to put the pieces back together and save our marriage. She tells me she needs some time and wants me to move out for a little while. I love her very much and have opened myself up to her, something i haven't been able to do for a long time.
My life is in a tailspin and i don't know what end is up, when i have to leave her and the kids I'm not sure how i will be able to handle it. I'm sure i will, its not the being out that bothers me its the not going back that is tearing me apart.
As we talk more and more she tells me she is confused at how i have been acting but still needs the time to think. i know its not all my fault but i cant help but think, if i did, said, did, acted, touched a little more we would not be were we are at. i want to hang on because she is the only one i have ever loved and do not want to loose her over something that we could work out. I'm so confused and hurt but i try to keep my head and hopes up.
