What to do?
Sorry this is long but I needed to talk to someone about my situation, and am hoping that someone would be able to advice me on the best course of action.
I have been married to my husband for 15 years and I personally have not been happy the last 5years. We have 2 boys together, they are my world and I would do anything for them.
My husband is a caring, responsible dedicated father but oblivious to everything else. I don't think he understand the word romance. For 15 years, I I received maybe 4 flowers for birthdays, anniversaries and any such events. We have no social life outside our immediate family. I can count the numbers of friends that we have with all the fingers on one hand. He goes to work, come home, sit in front of the tv or on the internet reading sports articles. Every time I confront him about it, he just shrugs it off and goes to do something else. Not that I'm complaining about his dedication to providing for the family, but I need some sort of stress reliever also. We both work 40+ hours a week, so a little social life is not a whole lot to ask, I don't think.
The last time we talked about this issue was 5 years ago, and I being the mother that I am, can't pick up the kids and leave because they love their father too much. Not a good reason to be unhappy, I know. But I don't know what to do. I can't get myself to leave. HELP, HELP, HELP.
Do I say, forget this, move on or stay and continue to be a b.....? HELP, HELP, HELP.
