I have been unhappy in my marriage for several years and have held on with things until now, however am planning to end the relationship shortly. My Wife knows that I have not been happy but has always carried on regardless avoiding and ignoring any attempts I have made to discuss my feelings.
I finally grasped the nettle and told my Wife I did not think we had a future together and she also shortly after she also found a private journal that I had been writing so she was left in no doubt as to the strength of my feelings. She has responded by refusing to eat and begging me to stay and give things another try, she keeps going over things in her mind and obviously see’s things from a different perspective entirely.
She has started to do all of the cooking and cleaning stopped complaining and in short is bending over backwards to please me, but at the same time threatened to make my life difficult if I did go. (I think this is probably a natural defensive reaction) However despite this I still do not feel that she is the person that I want to spend my life with and want to end things. Has anyone got any advice as to how I can lessen the hurt and the practicalities about leaving the home? Thank you Colin.
