Here is the first post in the series I've untitled DEAR AUNT HARRIET. The idea for this came from this post. This person has come to us for some guidance. Grab a cup of coffee and let's have a chat...
Dear Aunt Harriet,_____________________________________
My question for y'all is, "When do you know it's time to cut your loses and run?" I'm talking divorce here!
I'm 47 years old and we have no children. We married late and this is the first marriage for both of us. I was 41 and he was 43. Our courtship was beautiful. He swept me off my feet. We went everywhere together. I thought this was the best man ever. We dated for 2 years. Now that we are married he doesn't try anymore. I'm the last thing on his mind instead of the first. We don't argue but I feel like one day is the same as the next. I hate living paycheck to paycheck and always having to worry. The spark just isn't there anymore. We've become roommates.
I know the vows say "In good times and in bad" but is this all I have to look forward to for the rest of my life? If he was this way when we were dating I wouldn't have married him. He's boring now. Besides the obvious reasons of affairs and abuse is there ever a time when divorce is ok? What do I do?
