After 3o+ Years Of Marriage He Wants A Break (G-uno)

Does love just die, or fade away? Is there some kind of hidden expiration date on marriages that the general population is not privy to? Maybe because I’m now in my fifties I am more aware of the really high divorce rate among people of our age group who have been married longer than three decades.

The only thing I am certain of is the fact that my dear friend is completely devastated! I am heartbroken for her. I suspected that there were some rough patches in their relationship because of the whole “Stripper pole” thing, but I really didn’t over focus on that because all marriages have their moments of discord. I wish I could tell you that her husband is a total jerk, but he isn’t. He’s actually a kind, intelligent human, being with a big heart.

So what happened? I’m so shocked I’m not sure how to help her through whatever this may be. I just need to be able to get her through this evening.

    It is so very hard to understand but it is happening more and more. All you can really do is be there. My hugs for your dear friend.

            I really hope so, but he is staying in their vacation house instead of their home. 😦 G-uno

    That is so sad. It sounds like she was willing to try most anything to make things work…

        Unfortunately G-uno, we never really know what goes on behind people’s closed doors. We think everything is fine because that is what we seem but only the couple knows what’s really going on and it does take two.

          That’s very often true, but in this case she doesn’t know either. G-uno

    Be there for her and if you can for him. Sometimes, these wake up calls that we go through as individuals, sadly impact others around us. She will need someone that can support her through her 5 stages of grief, especially as she cycles through and back a few of them. Sending positive thoughts and energy.

      She is so hurt. It’s actually physically painful to watch her. I just got home a couple of hours ago. Her daughters will be arriving this afternoon for Thanksgiving. G-uno

    I wish you both the strength to get through this.

      I should have been more specific but I’m sure you understood I meant strength for her to get through this and strength for you to continue to be there for her. xx

    That is so sad. I hope that they can work through whatever the issue is.
