I don't even know the vast majority of you, but many of you seem understanding, judging by some of the other posts. It's just nice to have another outlet. Oof. My wife and I are splitting because, well, she's unhappy. It's a bit complicated but in a nutshell, we married four years ago, had a child two years ago, and she's absolutely miserable. She's had a rough past, been through 9/11 firsthand, had a drug problem, an ex-husband who treated her bad, and she has bipolar disorder. She lied to herself about wanting a husband and family because she thought that was the "right" thing to want, to feel safe and stable and finally happy. She's never been happy with one guy for very long at all, wanted it to be different with me because I'm a great, nice guy (so she says) but she just doesn't feel it. She's been faking being attracted to me, faking happiness, faking orgasms, everything. I'm absolutely gutted. Just wanted to vent. Carry on.
