Have Been Thinking About It For YearsYes, it's true. I've been married 7 years and have thought of divorcing my wife for at least the last 4 years. It's just that when things are bad, they are REALLY bad. I don't blame her entirely; I admit I am partly to blame. You see, we both have bad tempers, though I think hers is worse than mine. Of course, she thinks mine is worse than hers. The only reason we're still together is bacuse of the kids but more and more I think that's not a good reason to saty in a marriage that's not satisfying.
And in case anyone is thinking we should seek counseling and/or I should try harder. Well, sought counseling - three times - and have got no better at resolving conflicts. I've tried, too, again and again but I've gotten to the point that I just don't care to try anymore. I'm 48 years old and life is too short to waste away years. I'm not a fool to think life is greener on the other side (though one never knows); I simply want to be at peace; to be my own person and have the freedom to live my life as I wish.
