Dating a man twice my age discussion
I want her to get the right help because I want her to be happy and well both for her and for our child, but she thinks right now that divorce is the cure all because she was happier when I was in Afghanistan. For women who have been trying to find that illusive “special someone” for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer.I hope this will be a moot post eventually because my wife will commit to give things a chance and put in mutual effort, but right now I am the only party willing to put in the work that we both did not do for a while.the second one is not my fault - I was pressured into the marriage and my wife has a severe personaility disorder which she will not acknowledge/treat and will not agree at all to work on the marriage or herself.Also, I did not do enough in the beginning of our marriage to make her a priority - focusing on my own emotional issues.But I have also made huge strides in all aspects of being a husband and know that I have a lot to offer someone if this comes to pass and after I have taken sufficient time to heal.
Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
Then there's stupid me and I was marriage number 8 for my ex.
Wish someone had hit me with a 2 x 4 with lead in it! But, then again, I don't anticipate EVER getting married again.
I am not looking to rush into marriage - only to finally be able to give/receive mutual appreciate and affection. I am doing everything I can to try to save it, but I am just not optimistic.
