Marriage is not a bed of roses. It’s a challenging institution and only the strong ones survive.
A 60-year-old woman who has been married for more than 40 years is lamenting about her husband’s behaviour.
She reveals that she is not happy.
Her husband who is set to retire soon is full of negative vibes and the woman is torn in between whether to leave him or not.
Here is what she said;
I have been married 41 years and dated my husband for three years before our marriage. I am 60 years old and I am afraid to live on my own. I am a housewife. We have two grown daughters, and one granddaughter we raised from birth who is 21 and still living with us and going to a community college.
I am so unhappy in my marriage. My husband is a very negative person in every aspect of his life. He is going to retire in about two months. This has put him in a very angry mood, which I understand. It’s big decision for him to make. It is for me also. I just can’t live with his anger and negativity anymore. I love him, but at the same time I can’t stand him. Part of me wants to leave him because he is making me so unhappy and is making everyone else uncomfortable when they are here. By “everyone,” I mean our daughters.
Our granddaughter, whom we raised, just doesn’t like him. I don’t really want to leave, but I just can’t live with his anger and negativity anymore. I don’t know what to do or think”.
What would you do if you were in this woman’s feet?
