Me: I thought for sure it'd have to be cheating, but my husband did something this past week that I'm struggling to forgive him for. Work has been slow for him, so I begged him not to away on a 4 day trip with his friends. We didn't have much food in the house (no eggs, no milk, no meat) and barely any money between the two of us.
The drive down, the meals out, the hotel, and the drive back was all going to cost money. Please, don't do this, I begged. He still left, said he split the cost of the hotel with his buddies and couldn't leave them to come up with his share.
Meanwhile, it's raining cats and dogs out there, not even safe driving conditions. As luck would have it, this was no ordinary rainstorm. It became a massive flood that devastated our town. He says I hold grudges and that I have a problem with forgiveness. Hey, buddy you left me in the middle of a natural disaster to go on a joy trip with your friends!! (PS. we didn't starve. my mom came to the rescue!)
*This is the straw because he keeps going on trips/concerts with his friends. I don't feel married. I am seriously thinking about leaving, but I still love him!
