I’ve been with my husband for nearly 9 years. We have been married for 1 1/2 years. He’s the first (and only) boyfriend I ever had and things used to be great. Unfortunately, in recent years I can’t help but think about being with somebody else. As much as I love my husband, I feel so unhappy and trapped, and I really wish I would have experienced other relationships before I met him.
We do love each other, but I’m only 25 and I can’t help but feel there’s still time to find somebody else. I have spoken to him about this (and I suppose he’s been really nice in listening to my feelings, but he just won’t give up on us). There are three main reasons I feel like I can’t leave 1)I’d feel bad if he ever ended up alone – he’s such a nice guy and deserves somebody better than me. 2)My family would be disappointed and embarrassed (and probably angry at me) 3)I’m so scared I’ll regret leaving him, that I’ll never get over what could potentially be the biggest mistake of my life.
I was 18 when I met him, and he was 25. It’s only now at 25 myself, that I’m beginning to realize who I am and what I actually want from life. I should have never got married so young, and now I’m so sad. What on earth can I do? Please give me advice.
