Oh the age old question, how do you know when it is all over. I am fixing to celebrate my 10 year anniversary and I am sad to see it coming. I need lots of advice.

thank you,

I guess you should measure the distance between you now...as opposed to 10 years ago.

Do you find that your husband has pulled away? Doesn't say much to you because you nag him? Is there less closeness during your intimate times together?

You didn't really provide us with any examples or explanations...so the only thing I can do here is ask speculative questions.

Why don't you "open up a bit more" and I'm willing to bet you'll receive several responses from conerned imembers.

I have heard that there is a book that is very good for helping you make this kind of decision. It takes you through, step by step. It is called Too Good To Leave, Too Bad To Stay. You can read pieces of it at amazon.com (No I am not a stockholder, LOL)

Can you give us a summary or example of what's going on? I am sure the 10 yr point of a marriage is a time for reflection. But you said you're feeling sad so can you elaborate why?

I'm sorry to hear your facing such a sad descision. I'm afraid that before I could give any advice or opinions I would need more info please. Like why are you thinking it is over? What has led you to this conclusion?

I read Too Good To Leave, Too Bad To Stay, and I highly recommend it. It was an excellent book and helped me see a lot of stuff. Needless to say, I still haven't truly made a decision on whether to leave or stay :(, but maybe it will help you.
