I just told my husband that I want a divorce
I'm not sure how I feel. Guilty, I guess. I know I really hurt his feelings but I have been unhappy for a long time. I know he is, too, I just don't think he wants to admit it (at least, that is what I'm telling myself right now to make myself feel less guilty). We just aren't meeting each others needs anymore. We don't have much in common anymore. We don't have much between us anymore except our kids. (There hasn't been any cheating and not to trivialize anything any of you betrayed spouses have been through, but I almost think it would have been easier if he had cheated. It would have been a clear-cut reason to split up.) I know he is hurt and angry and I'm trying not to let what he's saying right now really get to me. He thinks I've been lying to him over the past couple of years as we've worked through our issues. I don't think I was lying - I felt like I was trying and I really wanted to believe that we could work things out. Now I've just gotten to the point where I don't want to try anymore because I just don't see us having a happy future. I don't regret anything that happened in our marriage. I am very scared about the future, about how the kids will react (although, honestly, I don't think they will be all that surprised), how I am going to cope, how I will be happy. I really feel like this is the best decision for me, though.
It gets better, right?
