Does anyone else out there feel trapped in an unhappy marriage? Marriages all start out wonderful, but many deteriorate with time. My husband is not the same man I thought I married (11 years ago). Long story short, I feel neglected & unloved. My heart feels broken, and I would file for divorce tomorrow, except we have 3 children, ages 8, 6, & 3. I can't think of only myself. Divorce is really hard on children. So I feel I can't in good conscience file for divorce until my youngest becomes 18. 15 years seems an awfully long time to wait though. I feel so stuck. My husband is not abusive- he's a great father- so it's not like my kids are in a toxic environment.
I'm just not sure how I'm going to survive the next 15 years, constantly feeling hurt and sad.
