I read somewhere once that the secret of long (and happy?) marriages was that the people involved “never fell out of love at the same time”.
Every second marriage seems to be disintegrating around me. Mostly women are deciding they are no longer going to live with the staus quo. As a child of divorce, I have always sworn this will never happen to me.
Well this has happened to me.
We’ve been married almost ten years, known each other for over 20 years and we’re both not sure we want to be married anymore.
We have a 7 year old together.
With much unspoken and assumed intimacy, we’ve grown apart – for want of a better cliché. We’ve been unable to go along, get along or be able to make life better for each other for over a year now.
