A Bump In The road or The End Of A Marriage?

My husband and I have been having problems for some time. At first it was mostly just those little things that only your partner can drive you crazy with. You know what I’m talking about. Then the distance that was created, grew into real problems.

I never thought I would ever consider leaving my husband. He is an amazing father and when it comes down to it, a good husband. But we’ve also grown apart and seem to be going in opposite directions.

I’ll admit, some of my bitterness is because all of the years that my husband has been in the military, I’ve put my education on hold and mostly do volunteer work. But I want more for my life and to show my children that they can do anything their heart desires. Recently, I finally started pursuing my dream of writing, but the support isn’t there from my spouse. That’s hard to deal with on a day to day basis.

My husband and I do try and make it work, but we also have a lack of communication that’s been there for most of our marriage. The scary thing for me is, I’m not sure if I want to work things out at this point.

My biggest concern is our kids, but I’m not staying in an unhappy marriage just for my children. I think it would do much more harm than good and as selfish as it may seem, I know I deserve to be happy too.

Have you been through a separation or divorce?
