I''m walking away
I moved out of our house. I couldn''t take a second more in my miserable marriage. Lack of sex &  emotional availability amongst many things. I got tired of keeping up with appearances and crying myself to sleep for my husband to pay me any attention. I am convinced he doesn''t love me so we were just roomates who had sex occasionally when I beg &  initiated. You can imagine what this did to my self esteem.

Me and his family do not get along at all, I resent them for being 100% dependant on him financially as well as emotionally. Whenever they called " needing"  him, he would drop everything and run to their rescue.

We have never been on a date in over 2 years, so after countless talks I have made peace with the fact that this marriage is a failed one.

Despite of how miserable I have been a part of me is mourning the end of what I hoped was going to be my happily ever after.

My parents have been supportive and welcomed me back into their house. He now picks up his son on saturdays and our lives are pretty much moving on. All I need to do is start the divorce proceedings. Too much has happened &  love is a distant memory.

Ps I''m just venting.
