Hello, I am new here. I am totally confused on what to do with my marriage.
I have been married for 31 years. My husband is 71 and I am 51.
He has been a good husband and father to our 3 adult kids. when I was 18, my family and friends warned me about the age difference. I never thought that we would change, he is still a good person, but I feel that our marriage is over.
he is no longer intrested in having intimacy with me. we have stopped having sex for a year now, and I feel frustrated and old.
he is physically able to have sex. I have caught him pleasing himself. he is also a very quiet person that does not like to talk about our problem. I have tried talking to him about my feeling, but he does not responce and just gives me a sad look.
I want to leave him but I feel bad for him. he has given me many good years. I dont want to leave him just because he is now old.
I dont know if I love him or feel sorry for him. I am so confused.
Thank you all for reading.
