Re: My spouse is chronically miserable.
I would really like the op to expand on this more. I feel like, or anyone in general, that there is a trend here and we should try to see it. I want to here more about what the OP does in the home or out of it, her respectability, his responsibility etc, I feel like, my bull**** detector is on high, maybe the wife is a miserable demanding **** and her husband just feels stuck with her, so he torments her into leaving and for amusement and gratification, so he doesn't have to feel guilty about being with a miserable **** who makes him feel down about himself. I did not see ONE positive word about her husband in that diatribe, only complaint after complaint after complaint. I certainly wouldn't put up with that **** in my life, so maybe a bit of looking in the mirror on her side is required to.
Maybe ask, why does my husband really act this way ? am I domineering, do I complain allot, and I pleasant to be around, am I annoyingly perky and unrealistic in my expectations ? you catch the drift.
