In response to a confession. Oh that is real nice. You have no idea if that is true or not. Even if it is, OP doesnt need to hear it from you. If it is true, she already knows.

i always wonder if the people who are quick to jump on the bandwagon of "just leave him" are or have ever been married. divorce is rarely quick, cheap or easy. plus, how do you know the person isn't already in the process of leaving? it took my mom about 12 years of saving and planning to finally leave my dad. she only made a little over minimum wage, so saving money was hard, and she had to devise a plan in which to leave my dad safely without getting hurt in the process (he was very abusive). also, sometimes people just want to vent. there are things that my husband may say or do that annoy me (and vice versa) but they aren't a big deal in the grand scheme of things. certainly not worthy of a divorce. he also has many redeeming qualities as well. remember that the confessions here are mostly biased. people mostly come here to confess the bad things, not the good.

In response to a confession. That's even worse then, if you've subjected your poor ds to this his whole life. I'd leave my dh before I'd let my kids be miserable or let them see their dad make me sad or upset on a regular basis. What a sad childhood, seeing all that fighting and dealing with an alcoholic dad. I feel bad for him.

Ugh. My 24 y/o niece just bought a house with her boyfriend. He's such a dick. He's a functioning alcoholic, who's cheated on her multiple times. He's a perfect replica of her father. She's a beautiful, bright woman. She's in college and a model (she was offered a modeling job during fashion week in NYC, but turned it down because of her school schedule), yet here she is, strapped with a mortgage with an asshole. My heart hurts.

In response to a confession. I didn't say it was good reason, it just happens to be MY reason.
My DH is not abusive, tries his best to make me and kids happy, he tells me it would rock his world if I left and I believe him. I can't seem to place my happiness over his. Sometimes I wish I didn't care. But I do.

I have complained about my DH on here before and people have said "wow, just leave him". I get that he has negative traits that I complain about, but I suppose I'm willing to overlook those faults because he has a lot of good qualities too. I think that's the case with most marriages--the people are both not perfect and they know which things they can compromise on. I may not like how my DH doesn't always think to help me more around the house, but he does earn a good living and likes taking care of me, he is good in bed and not selfish, and he's not jealous or controlling. So I guess I'd rather have him as a friend and companion and lifemate rather than live alone just because he doesn't always put his dishes in the sink.

In response to a confession. Wowza, you think it's crappy that I'm involving my almost adult ds in "this mess?" He's lived it is whole life! You don't think he's seen the arguements, sadness and pain dh has caused??? You're damn right I'm going to ask ds's opinions on subjects that effect his life too! Take your judgment and shove it!

In response to a confession. I feel sorry for you for staying in a crappy marriage! I'm sure you dh would be able to survive without you. Wasting your life away with someone because you feel sorry for them is lame.

Here's the thing about shitty relationships and marriages: they aren't simple. Whether it's a spouse, friend, or family member, if you've invested years of your life loving someone, it's really hard to just leave. And so many women rely on their spouse for a roof over their head. Leaving my asshole ex-husband was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I was lucky in that I had a degree, a good job, and no kids. Leaving a spouse is incredibly complicated and I wish anyone here going through a shitty marriage nothing but love and strength. Even the one's who are cheating. I get it.
