| | Married much younger man and now Im miserable
I am 47 and my husband of 5 years is 33. I am afraid that I have made a huge mistake. I was married once before for 17 years to a man my age and was very happy until we mutually decided to divorce. We were bored with each other but now I see we were wrong. I guess we both thought there was more out there, we were just being selfish I guess. In between I was single for 5 years. I met the man I'm with now and feel deeply in love (now I think possibly lust). We got married after 2 years of dating. We had a daughter a year later and she is wonderful. My husband though is a jerk. An immature jerk. Boy that feels good to say...He insists that he is happy with me and ignores the fact that I am not happy. When I bring up the subject he says im trying to pick a fight. I truly am not. He always did have a cute sarcasm about him but now its not so cute. He has a negative remark to say about everything I say or do. In front of others he is Mr. Perfect. He's polite, kind, puts his arm around me like he's such a loving husband. Everyone LOVES him! I dont think I do though. Most of the time I dont even LIKE him. I am exausted from trying to mend this failing marriage all alone. He is perfectly content. I am so confused as to what to do. I don't want to hurt my little girl. I cry every day and beg him to try to help us. He only says "why, theres nothing wrong". Than goes back to the t.v. All I want is to share my life with someone and not waste it playing these stupid games that I played in my 20's. Please help me...
