I Finally Left And Have No Regrets!Like so many people out there, I lived in a sexless marriage for years. Really, the last 4 were the worst. I stayed for a variety of reasons and all of them were bad. I tried therapy on two separate occasions. He just blamed everything on me and didn't even care to try. I craved physical attention, I craved passion, let's face it kids I craved sex!! Finally, I just had enough. I have been separated for many months now. The house is sold and the divorce paperwork is ready to be filled!
I am dating again which is something I haven't done in over 10 years. I have no doubt that I will meet someone and find all of the things I have been missing for years. I have learned that my sexless marriage I contributed to. I wanted to be able to point the finger completely at him but, I now know that part of what happened is my fault. In the end we grew apart and it just didn't work out. I guess I would say for me, to really be able to move forward I had to take my share of the blame and accept that. I am happier now than I have been in years. I hope others who find their way out of these marriages will post on here so that maybe we can help others to find the courage to leave!
I know over the years of going through this, I was on here pretty often hoping to get some perspective.
