I Am All Alone In Ths Marriage

I am married to a stranger...it's been 16 years and he has grown so distant. I am a stay-at-home mom who is alone all day. My husband comes home and says nothing to me and barks orders at my son. He never smiles, never laughs. He creates so much tension in my life that I just want to run away. And the LAST thing I want to do is jump into bed with him! I have been sleeping on the couch downstairs for over a  year now. I am so sad. My poor son who we adopted,  is 12 years old and I just know it is affecting him. I feel like I'm the only one like this. Eveyone else always seems so happy. I want that too.

I understand just how you feel. I have been married 19 yrs now and I am miserable and feel I have NO WAY out. I am exhausted at the end of every day because this man makes my life a living hell and no one sees the true side of him. I wish I was alone all day.....mine is with me 24/7 as I run an at home business (which is failing because he is here and will NOT allow me out of his site) and he is at home because of a disability....I would give my right arm to be alone for a day!
