I Can't Go On This Way

Have you ever made a big mistake? I don't mean buying expensive shoes that hurt your feet or yelling at your best friend. I mean a poor decision that has impacted your entire life. Like marrying the wrong man.

I was so in love with my husband. He's a lot older than me, and I guess he swept me off my feet. I'm sure everyone thinks I have an enviable life. We have a nice house, and he does very well for himself financially, so I don't have to worry about money. He's a respected local businessman. And my parents think he walks on water.

But lately, things aren't so wonderful. Don't get me wrong, he's not beating me up or anything. My mother said it's all part of marriage and that I have to accept that the honeymoon is over. Of course she would say that, she adores him!

I have given it time. I have tried, really I have. But I don't think this is how marriage is supposed to be. I don't think this is how life is supposed to be. People tell me I'm pretty but I'm really just a simple country girl at heart. At the risk of sounding conceited, I think I was a trophy wife and it's going to get very ugly if I try to leave.

What to do? What to do?

Have you ever made a huge mistake like this? What would you do?

  1. I think the first step is to see a lawyer (a good divorce attorney) and discuss what options are available to you. Be honest and tell the lawyer the concerns you have.

    1. Thank you, Jen. Maybe that's the right thing to do.

  3. There are days when it is hard to be with my husband of almost 42 years but I never think it was a mistake. He takes pretty good care of me. (I do alright for him too.)

    1. That's so sweet, Elaine. I wish it would be that way for me.

  4. I just have to say, mother's are always right. I sure wish I would have listened to her about all the men that came and went. Life would have been easier for sure.
