This December will make one year since my wife proclaimed that she no longer loves me, 10 months sexless and 3 months that I have lived without even getting a kiss. With the holidays coming I thought this is the time to make a last stand. She has avoided confrontation for a while now, I think she enjoys having the luxury of marriage without having to give some affection in return, but I cant stand it anymore. I told her that after the Holidays it will be a year. If you still dont know if you love me after one year then I will make the decision for you. We will see a lawyer. She had the deer in the headlights look and said nothing, she simply nodded her head. I think its a shame that this is being placed on my shoulders but I know if I leave it up to her, we will remain sexless forever. I cant do it. I have to make a stand. I have been too damn nice too damn long and it is costing me my own happiness. This was two weeks ago. Since then I have researched apartments, I have checked out the cost of storage units, I have gotten advice on lawyers and I have got all the bills tracked down so I know our debt. She simply has continued on with her life as if nothing has happened. I still think she believes I dont have it in me to take this a step further, but she will be sadly mistaken. I am loving, I am kind and I am respectful but no one and I mean no one should have to live with someone who doesnt not have the same respect or love for them. Life is too short to live this way and I simply wont live this way much longer.
