Why Not Me?

Wow, what I would do to be married to someone who loved me for who I am, cherished me and most of all respected me. This is the dream I had since I was 13 years old, but this has never happened to me. One broken marriage, and now in an unhappy marriage.

My daughter says she see her friends' mothers being treated well by their husbands and that their husbands would never treat their wives the way my husband treats me.

I am in complete ambivilance about this marriage, but I wonder, at 45 what are the chances of meeting someone now who would love and respect me? My best friend says there is a "man shortage" for women my age. I wonder if I just missed the boat on the one thing I ever wanted in life.

You are never too old to find the happiness you deserve, and someone to love you as you deserved to be loved... Life is too short to be unhappy and I think you are better off alone than suffering in silence.. x
