Living In a Marriage Without Intimacy
How to begin, well I'd like to say that things weren't always so rough at home.
For the first few years then her parents were getting ill and eventually passing on, but through it all I was always beside her but I noticed that she was slowly pushing me away, maybe I was trying to be to consoling and comforting.
I can only assume that maybe there is something wrong with me to make her feel that I was causing her hardship, anyway lately she has taken to calling me names and hurting my feelings on a regular basis and when I ask her not to do this she gets demeaning and saying what you gonna do if I don't and being verbally abusive.
Then when I try to tell her that I'm tired of being humiliated and made to feel less of a man she gets abusive and says things like if you don't like it where you going to go?
You got no one but me who cares in this world.
I told her before I was unhappy especially when she gets abusive, lately I have been playing video games to occupy myself and to escape the reality that after almost 26 years togethor that its going downhill lately.
I talked to my mom about it and she said she's likely going through a change of life and to be patient, but how can I put up with the abuse?
I feel that verbal is the cruelest of all abuses because it scars on the inside, where no one else sees it.
