How about not even crumbs...
I have been beating a dead horse for a year and I am finally tired. This horse is truly dead; absolutely no response. Problem is I am one of those that cannot get myself motivated enough to leave.
After a 30 year relationship and 23 year marriage, this is the only life I know, and any other kind of life other that what I know is very scary. Well that's how I see it anyway.
But I'm tired now and I have managed to build up enough courage to face what's waiting out there for me. Life at home is unbearable and I just can't continue living like this.
I suspect there are many people out there like me that will stay in a marriage with a dead horse as long as they can bear it mainly because of fear of the unknown, lonliness, being alone, fear of change, etc.
When its time to go is an individual thing. Alpha males may give it a week tops, others may cling on alot longer.
