I'M So Over It I'M Numb

I've been with my husband for over 14 years- of those years I honestly feel I've never really felt what it's like to be married to a real man. I was naive in thinking he was a real man when I married him- he just retired from the marine corps- he was a very manly man when it came to his job and work- but at home...I did EVERYTHING. From fixing plumbing to taking out the trash- I did it all. It was hard to reconcile what I thought a husband should be - when he was gone most the time and I held down the fort all the time- I still do even now that he's retired.

I realize now that while even though he had the capability to lead a platoon of men to battle, he has zero capability to take our kids to school without instructions.

I'm seriously so over it, I can't even put it in words. I literarily googled "I hate my husband" just to see if I was in my own boat and am floored to know I am not alone.

I finally feel like there is nothing wrong with me.

I feel like I hate my husband too. I hate that feeling.

Me too- it literally kills me- but at the same time, liberates me. Does that make sense? Thank you for commenting :)

Yes! My husband will do all that yours wont around the house,but he cusses me and Is very mean and disrespectful to me. My skin crawls and I get physically sick when he is yelling and cussing me.
