Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hello all, I just came across this website and it seems to be just what I was looking for. My husband and I have had a lot of trouble, struggles, issues, etc., but it is good to know we are not alone. Hopefully I can gain some knowledge, insight and experience from the members of this site.

Smile Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hello everyone!
I am fairly new to the community. I joined in hopes of finding answers to assist me with issues within my own marriage. Yes, I have mostly lurked up till now. I am not sure reading posts have helped me at all, but they have made me feel a little less alone.

I have a wonderful H, we have been married 20+ years. I use to consider him not only the love of my life but my best friend. He is still the love of my life and I can not imagine my life without him.
I think through those years we have each developed our own resentments & regrets. These become barriers many times in us being able to communicate. Some of the barriers I admit are mostly my fault for ways I have acted and things I have done.
I will admit in the past I have had PA. He did have an EA and a question always remains on my part as to whether that was all. He has forgiven me and I have forgiven him. However, these things still remain in our minds - thus, causing barriers in communicating.
We have dealt with a few issues with our son (things we really are unable to talk about together)- which as much as it would be nice to talk to someone about that issue I just can't put that out here for all to see.
We are also currently dealing with "empty nest". I feel it bothers me more than him. I guess I had fantasies of how that would be and at times become dissappointed to find it is not all I had dreamed.
I think we are just going through so many changes it is just difficult.
Mainly, I just wanted to introduce my self to the community here.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hi, my story is so long. I met my husband chating 4 years ago, we got married almost a year ago. He is from USA and I'm from Costa Rica. He has been living here with me until recently that he left for a couple months to visit his 2 kids from previous marriage and dad. He is supposed to come back this Friday. Yesterday he said he will come and will leave again because his dad has a health condition and since his son is living with his dad, he doesn't want to leave him alone. Fine I understand that but he works from home and now also says he will look for a real job with a better pay. (The job he currently has allows him to work in CR since its from home and he doesn't have papers but pay is good for CR standars not USA). So I've been upset thinking he is going to abandon me here. Today he said he isn't even coming back this Friday because he already got a job and will continue doing part time on the one he currently has for same pay. He asks if I'm happy for him, he says we will be economically better than ever since I also got a new job here but of course I'm not happy, not the right way to do things, he didn't even ask me. How can I believe when he says he misses me and loves me when he couldn't even make his first day a week after to be able to come here at least and see me after those 2 months we have been appart since we got married. I feel I hate him for doing that to me. I don't have papers and don't want and won't be there illegal. I just cry and cry and I talk to him with so much anger. I haven't tell him I love hin in the last 3 days, I don't feel it anymore, whatever was there, he managed to kill it. Even if he comes this Friday I won't be happy, I'm hurt his dad and son won over the new wife. I deserve so much better, I was a good person, ignored all the signs I got to not marry him (first time he missed his flight to come here and we couldn't get married, second time lawyer had a problem with computer and couldnt marry us on the day we had planned it). It's 4am in the morning here, I haven't sleep, my eyes are all swallow and red and I just keep crying and can't sleep. Sorry for typing so much. I just wish I could have met someone who would have care to be with me and could have appreciated me more, because no matter what he says, I don't believe him anymore. He chose to leave and I don't want to be like this. I feel so hurt.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

I am glad to be in this community. I hope I should be able to contribute my quota (as a writer on marriage issues) to help save ailing marriages.
I am also here to learn from others, because no man is an island of knowledge.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Need advise on marriage.

When the wife wants to talk and when you do talk she is only one talking and if I want to say something I am Interrupting. If I don't say anything then I don't care.

Like today we where talking and someone text her about someone just got Admitted to the hospital. This is when I was talking but she say sorry to cut you off and we will finish our talk later but I have to find out about our friend. I feel and even told her you don't consider my feeling.
need help or advise.
