WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

I Married The Wrong Guy

I'm thinking about leaving my husband.  I think I married the wrong guy.  I'm still young, I don't want to spend my life waiting for him to be the man I thought he was.  I'm so afraid to give-up and afraid to be "divorced" before I'm 28. My mother would never let me hear the end of itWhat if I never find anyone else?  {end story}

Have you ever stayed in a relationship that wasn't working, just because you were afraid to get out of it?  Do tell…

    Give it every chance it can have and then love it or leave it.

      We think this is god advice. Everything and everyone (pretty much) needs a chance – sometimes marriages most of all. However, admitting it’s not right wen it’s nor right – and can not be – is usually best for everyone. There’s life to be lived.

    I was engaged to a guy who ended things 3 weeks before our wedding, after the invitations had gone out! Obviously, I was devastated, embarrassed, sad, humiliated, lost. Years later, I am so grateful for the decision he made. He saw that we were wrong for each other before I did. It still isn’t something I’d ever want to go through again or wish on any one. Breaking an engagement is better than getting a divorce, IMO. Both are better than being in an unhappy marriage.

      Oh no he did not! Good for you for making lemonade. That’s so horrible.

        What she said. Wow. That must have been brutal, the loss of the dream and fairytale ending…but so great that you got back up, brushed yourself off, and moved on to happier.

    It took me 3 years of misery to realize my boyfriend and I were not mean to be anything more than a 4 year relationship. Hardest thing I ever did was ending this, because while I was miserable, he’s a great guy. Not the guy I should be with no matter how hard I tried to pretend otherwise. I could only fool myself for so long.

    I’m wrestling with this after more than 20 years of being together. I thought it many times in the past and always pushed it away. The sooner you admit a mistake the better.
