My h and are have not been emotionally and physically intimate for several years. He is probably depressed, I want a new life, but we have two beautiful teenagers, who I don't want to damage.
He is a good dad, and loves them dearly. He's just not for me, esp. as I am getting older, I don't want to spend the last part of my life with him. He doesn't take care of himself, he will end up sickly, and he lays around a lot.
I am having difficulty making the move, telling him what I want....and taking the next steps. I'm afraid of dealing with the "upset," I'm afraid of not having my kids around, and that lifestyle change. But, I am so lonely, and haven't had a loving relationship in several years. I miss that.
I have sacrificed my own needs for so long to protect and take care of my kids. I struggle with continuing as is, or making the move.....
