I have been married to this guy for 10 years this May and together for 11. When I met him he was my prince charming. He was so sweet and a fantastic lover. We have been through so much and always patched things up. He is nice to strangers all the time and to me I get nasty comments about everything. I cannot do anything right. I can't drive right, I'm not a good parent, My job is not physical enough and here's the kicker...I make more money than him and it hurts his pride. There is no communication at all. If I want to talk he has a fit and calls me every name in the book. I really love it when he tells me to shut the **** up. Lovely, huh. Well I am a great person with tons of friends and a wonderful job. I have raised 2 beautiful girls and now have a 8 year old son that is a great kid and smart as well. We have gone over a year without having sex or any skin contact at all. I tried to have a conversation or communicate this to him but once again I was told to shut it. I don't want to have my son lose his dad but I don't think I can take anymore. I am a passionate person who needs to be touched and love conversation. He on the other hand has so many issues. His father committed suicide when he was seven. His mother just passed away about a year ago. She drank so much and was always tanked. His brother is a pill popper who has been on methadone for 3 years and now hooked on Xanax. His sister is going on her 3rd marriage. He has problems with drinking as well. He goes through a 12 pack every other day and will sit there and drink 7 to 10 beers in a row and not even be buzzed. What have I gotten myself into. He has another child with his ex girlfriend that he never sees or calls. When I met him he told what a witch she was and how much he hated her. That poor boy has grown up without his father. I don't want that for my boy. He does love his dad but I can't take it anymore.
