Not so happy update

October 8th, 2016 at 06:45 am

I've mentioned before my marriage hasn't been going so well. It is over. Since DH has nothing (He does not have the means to get his own place), I am doing my best to not end the marriage until I move next June. After the past two weeks, I am not sure I can do it. His depression (major mood swings) is worse than ever, and he won't get help. He also is not contributing anything to the bills other than gas in the car. There are more details, but I will refrain from sharing on the internet. I really want to end it all amicably and want him to have a place to go, but there is a limit of what I can or should deal with. I do feel it is important to add he is not a violent person.

My cousin is also in a bad marriage, and we have done a lot of talking. We are seriously consider living together when I move back. We are only two months apart in age and have always had a good relationship, so this could be good for both of us. It would save us both money as well. So much to think about...

    I'm so sorry Laura. I'm glad you have someone to talk to. And moving in together is a bright light to the situation. Take care, sending prayers.

    {{{Hugs}}} I wish we knew how to help, DH's refusal to seek help is a typical reaction of those that need medical help the most. If you need to vent, this seems a safe site and we've all a sympathetic ear and are ready to be supportive. I'm so glad you've a cousin that understands.

    Divorce is never easy, and it must be especially difficult when your partner is depressed and broke. Wishing you godspeed over this rocky path.
