Long story

Postby Dmonty » Mon Nov 04, 2019 10:30 pm

This is definitely a long story but will try and keep it short. I've spent the last 15 years supporting my wife and 2 children. 6 months ago she had an affair and it affected me pretty badly...as it should. Details aren't necessary but would like to mention that I'm trying to work through it and recover what was lost. I love my wife so incredibly much but I now notice things that I didn't before. For instance: she doesn't search me out or attempt to make conversation, nothing is ever resolved when we have an argument because she's either tired or stressed. Like I said before...I'm not going to explain everything or paint a bad picture of her, but I've attempted and am still currently trying to fix our relationship. Many say that it shouldn't be me trying to fix. I'm very secretively depressed and am on edge all the time. I know for a fact that she doesn't love me anymore (which hurts a lot) but I'm not sure why she wants to stay with me. We're currently living with family because I was laid off...lol...which that doesn't help my anxiety. But, I'm not able to support her. Does she feel bad that she put me in debt or does she still love me....I just know. Wish I had a path or some answers.

Thank you,

Yes, it sounds like she's no longer interested in you. Maybe lack of money is stopping her leaving.

It sounds like you couldn't satisfy her sexually.
You no longer have money coming in and no woman wants that.

Do you think about suicide?

You have to talk to your wife about this issue, and also work on more intimacy in your relationship. You need more assurance it will not happen again.
