My MarriageThis year my husband and I celebrated 20 years of marriage. Things are not stale but we are living separate lives, I never see him, he's always working or out.
I became a bit concerned that when our children leave home we would have nothing left. This is still the case, I am trying to relight our marriage. It isn't working. I'm here because he is not!
He cycles a lot and will often go on a Saturday morning and cycle all day. That's if he is not working.
I'm trying to start over, the physical side of our marriage is really good but as a family we just don't get along. If all 5 of us are together for longer than a few hours a war develops.
He and I get on really well, we are best friends, I love him, he loves me, we are soul mates. I could never see myself married to anyone else, we need to start over, find a common ground, something we can all do (without the war)
In the interim I will come here to EP write down my thoughts, share them with like minded people, work it out. Make it work.
If all else fails I doubt I will be a lonely old woman, I am far too crazy and lively for that. I have really good friends.
But for now I am trying to start over with my marriage.
