My heart is breaking over our very difficult marriage . I feel so alone and isolated. I love and care for her but am not sure I can go on living like this. When I think of love I look at it in two ways. One is the romantic love that keeps the fires going in the relationship. It is physical, emotional, and spiritual. Then there is the love that you have for your spouse that relates to respecting the person they are. They are the mothers/fathers of our children, mates, share our lives with us. I feel that both of these loves must be present for the relationship to work. Yet without the physical love being present it leads to feeling rejected, hurt, and isolated. That is where I am right now. I feel so very stuck in my relationship and need to begin to work towards making a very difficult decision. I will need strength to keep working on this.
