In response to a confession. I don't have any advice but just wanted to give you a virtual hug, I'm 45 and kind of in the same boat. Living as roommates, married 17 years and it's about to end as well. I've worked part-time since my kids were born. They're 12 and 13 now, that's the hardest part in the whole situation. You/I might have a rough first year or so, but I'm m betting in the end it will all work out and be worth it. Definitely go talk to a good attorney, and good luck. It's never too late to start over!

I have this friend who is always complaining about her health. She goes to the doctor for everything--she once went because she was constipated. I am the exact opposite--I don't go to the doctor unless I am pretty much dying, so I don't understand her logic. Then again, she is still on her parents' health insurance, so maybe her mind will change once she has to foot the bills for the premium or the copays for the office visits.

Have any of you women had to start over at 48 or older? DH and I have been separated but living together all this time. He's an alcoholic and went on a tangent how he loves me but he doesn't want to be with me. Good. Because I've felt the same way forever. He's upset I dated someone when we separated. He's the 1 who was having an emotional affair that made me separate and date in the 1st place. Any way, I'm on SDI now and am looking for a job. We own a house, have been married 28 years and we've both had it. He wants me to move out. Yeah right. He's pissed because he pays almost everything right now. I've worked almost our whole marriage except for a few years when our kids were born. He says he's not going to pay me alimony. I'm uncertain about my future. I have office skills, but have been with him my whole adult life. Suggestions please.

I am slowly losing respect for a longtime friend. She ALWAYS for about the past 20 years, has herself in a subservient position to someone. It was usually a man, but now it is her son's wife and the wife's family.

In response to a confession. DH and I just had this convo yesterday. When we're with friends he seems to have such a good time. But when it's just the two of us all he wants to do is sit around. I told him last night that I'm making plans for today and it's his decision whether he goes with or not.

In response to a confession. DH travels a lot, and when he's home, I practically have to drag him out. He seems to have a good time and thanks me, because he says he "doesn't know how to have fun." That hurt, because he has a TON of fun when he's away and out with his work crew, or when he visits friends near where he's working, or when we go see friends when he's home. I mentioned that to him, and he said it's because all of that involves drinking. So he can't have a good time unless alcohol is involved. I'm not a big drinker. Oof.

You GUYS! I think my DH really is realizing how obnoxious the hoarding is. He didn't go through the trash this time! He's actually getting on board with getting rid of stuff. I think after we downsized our house he realized we had a lot of crap we don't ever use.

Today it occurred to me that DH and I do NOTHING alone together. We can go out to dinner with friends and have a good time, or have people over for cards and snacks (like we did last night) and have a wonderful time. Then today we haven't said ten words to each other. He's taken turns napping in his recliner and playing Solitaire on his iPad, poo-pooing every idea I've had. It's a Sunday in Florida, dammit! I'd like the two of us to have fun, but I guess it's just not there anymore.

DH and I haven't had sex in about two months now. We are both 50 years old and both having health problems, although I have more severe health issues (and more of them). We talk about wanting to have sex, but we're both so exhausted and in so much pain all the time that it just doesn't happen. I don't know how to fix this, and it makes me sad.

Tell me if this would piss you off. While relocating, you temporarily move in to your parents house while loans get approved and etc. Normally, your parents pay their other adult child to clean their house. While you’re living there, parents say you should clean the house. And they continue to pay other child for the cleaning that you now do.
