A young woman wants to leave her marriage and start over, but her family is furious at the very idea! She doesn’t know what to do, so she came to Reddit for advice. This is her story.
An Unhappy Marriage
Alice has been married to her husband, John, for almost two years, and they’ve been together for almost three.
Pressure to Get Married Fast
They got married quickly because of religious pressure and “love”. Although her husband is a great guy, she no longer wishes to continue the relationship due to personal issues, needs, and wants.
Issues Big and Small
There have all kinds of issues throughout their relationship.
Her Problems With Her Husband
She has always had a problem with how much he drinks, and has felt like she constantly has to tell him what to do regarding the house and his finances.
He Never Wants to Talk
He put her down and discouraged her from going to school, and rejected couples counseling when she asked for it.
When she tried to talk to him, he was always too tired for a serious conversation.
She Finally Said It Was Over
A few months ago, she told her husband that she was done.
He Was Making the Changes She Wanted
Although he was completely blindsided and devastated, he made many changes that she had always wanted.
She Already Moved On
Her heart wasn’t in it anymore, and she resented him at this point. She flirted and developed a friendship with another guy after telling her husband there wasn’t a chance. She wanted out!
His Reaction When He Found Out
He found out and got angry. He said the distraction prevented her from giving their relationship a fair shot.
Her Family Threatens Her
Now, her family is involved, and her mother has said she will disown her if she goes through with ending the relationship.
Her Sister Says She’ll Kick Her Out
She is renting a house from her sister at a good price, but her sister told her she can’t live there anymore if she doesn’t try and fix the relationship.
Everyone Is Angry
Her husband’s mother has sent her messages saying they’re crying and upset.
Feeling Like Her Feelings Don’t Matter
She feels like everyone else’s happiness trumps hers, and wonders why all the effort she put into the last year of the one-sided relationship doesn’t matter.
What Should She Do?
But, now that her husband is trying, she wonders if she should just be happy that he loves her so much. She doesn’t know what to do.
