At what is a vulnerable time in your life it doesn't help to air your dirty laundry in public and be asailed by the countless opinions that a facility like Allnurses.com provides.
I hope you get it sorted.

Last year, my DH and I seperated and divorce because of the same sort of issues that you are having. I did feel bored, very much so. He didn't seem to care if his family said or did rude things directed at me. We had many, many problems in our marriage, and they only seemed to get worse with time.
I moved out, and filed for divorce. I worked hard in order to support myself and the kids. Eventually, the job was just too demanding (transferring me three times w/i six months). I quit and stayed home with my kids. This is all happening during the course of the divorce, mind you. I was completely stressed out and had no idea which way was up. My property settlement with the divorce had our real estate properties equally divided. Luckily, we owned two houses, and I was going to keep one ... a definite blessing considering I wasn't working, drawing unemployment, and the rent on my apartment was rather expensive. The major problem with that was that the two properties were located side by side.:uhoh21: We decided to give it a go, anyway...
The kids and I moved back, and since I wasn't working, I had plenty of time. We were trying to be friends, and ending up spending quite a bit of time together. Day in and day out, I constantly prayed that God would show what direction to take now... and He did.
At 11:00 AM yesterday, my ex once again became my DH. We jointly decided I would change careers to nursing. He wholeheartedly supports me going to school and we are looking forward to the future.
His family has been rather skeptical, as you'd imagine. DH has called each and every one of them, in my presence, no doubt, to tell them of our reunion. He told them all that even though he said some nasty things about me, that he did it because he was hurting. But, never the less, he loves me and I love him, and that's all that matters. He told them that we were going to be remarried, and that while he understands that they may have their reservations, we have none. He asked his family to please pray for our family, and that by doing so, everything would work out for us all. Last weekend, the entire family gathered at my house for dinner. (lol.. he's the baby of 13 children.. ) Everything went very well, and several family members commented that they'd never seen us so happy together.
I guess what I'm saying is to pray, pray, pray. God puts you where you need to be if you'll only trust him to do so. Sometimes we don't understand it, but you have to have faith. If you want to talk, please PM me. I'm not here to judge anybody. I just know EXACTLY where you are coming from.. and I've found a happy ending. I wish you the same. Good luck..

We ARE adults here, correct? :stoneHusband and Mellow one, I have to say you are 2 of the most arrogant, ignorant, rude jerks I have ever seen and God help anyone who has to suffer under your nursing care if the above is any indication of your bedside manner.
Apr 20, '04Occupation: Student Joined: May '03; Posts: 704; Likes: 1I must say, I agree with you, LPN2Be2004. At the same time, I agree with the men (MellowOne and Husband).
MellowOne, I read your posts on this subject from the previous thread, and I don't think you're a chauvanist pig like some other women do. I'm very familiar with what the Bible says about marriage, and I agree with it and the things you posted about it. My husband and I fulfill each other's needs, and after 14 years, we're happier than ever.
I believe that if a woman treats her husband like a king, he will in turn treat her like a queen, and vice versa. At least that's how it is in my marriage.

He is boring if you knew him you would say the same. Im not saying that he isn't a nice and caring guy, but he is boring. Our life is boring and I have gone from being an outgoing, fun loving person to yes, a boring person myself.
Secondly we dont have sex at all ( im 26 ). I just dont desire to have sex with him. I feel like something is wrong with me, but I just couldn't be bothered any more. It has never been a mind blowing experence if you get my drift. :imbar
Thirdly I was at his sisters place the other day and she bought out the family photo album. There was a total of one photo of me in that whole album. :angryfire Im very much loved by all (NOT). And once again he just sits there like a stunned mullet and dosent say a word.This has happened quite alot with him and I as he dosent like causing trouble. I cant see how sticking up for your wife is causing trouble. :angryfire
Im not saying that he isnt a good father, or a good provider but surely I count to. I have gave up a hell off a lot for him I cant help but feel like now its my turn.I do care about him but at the moment I just cant deal with all the **** that goes along with him. The stupid little things that he does, the contants mistakes that he makes which I have to correct, all on a daily basis.
I feel like an absolute ***** but I just cant take it anymore.
The spark and intimacy has gone. Discuss your sexual life and your living together in general with your husband. Saying something like" Life is boring lets try something different."
I hate to say that you had to make a move becos some Guys around this southern Hemispere can be not so romantic. The lovey dovey stuff dies out a month after the wedding.
I once had a fiance and living together was great, but it started to become a routine and I tried something different like asked him to go out to the beach at night or travel to a different island, do different sexual moves but something was missing. I started thinking like "Is this the life am going to be living with when we get married? I will definitely ended up having an affair with a another guy". Anyway, I broke off the engagement and thank god! I didn't marry this guy.
Hope everything turns out well for you.

No, she would have added boring, lazy, childish, stubborn, insensitive….. but also HONEST.Husband and Mellow one, I have to say you are 2 of the most arrogant, ignorant, rude jerks I have ever seen and God help anyone who has to suffer under your nursing care if the above is any indication of your bedside manner.
What type of replies did you expect to Lacie’s post? She’s only 26, doesn’t want or have ANY sex and she is leaving her husband because HE is boring. The final straw for her was that her boring husband didn’t demand that his sister have a few photos more of her. Get real. From memory, I think that most of the more direct replies to Lacie (something like yours to me) were from others.

I see you're only 26. How long have you & hubby been married? If you have kids, I would say DEFINITLY try to work it out. If you don't have kids, still try so at least you know. Sometimes the grass seems greener and it's just an illusion. My DH & I have been married 4 years, and let me tell you, it's not been a picnic. But we work on it, and we take weekends off together and try hard. I don't know what kind of stress you may be under, but maybe a romantic getaway to somewhere you've always wanted to go would put a spark in there. I think you should be open w/your husband and tell him how you feel. Sometimes they don't have that ESP going.

My DH was married for 13 years to someone else. Luckily, the in laws weren't too crazy about her. They have been good to me, but I also try and attend all family functions, help cook, clean up and make an effort to become part of their family. Also, just a hint, when we got engaged, I gave EVERYONE in his family a 5 x 7 picture of us, and gave the parents a 8 x 10, ha ha! I also get family pics every year and dole those out, too. THAT is how you get your pictures into the albums. They don't take themselves.

And let me tell you: the kid's not an idiot, they see right through it.

My appologies to both husband and mellow one, despite my feelings on the matter, this post was innappropriate and uncalled for, I truly appologise and do recognise that everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Please accept my appology.
Apr 21, '04Joined: Apr '00; Posts: 24,611; Likes: 35,448I think many times 'boredom' is subconsciously something so much more deep-rooted. Being married 17 years I've been bored, miserable, blaming, paranoid, insecure, restless- you name it. Hell, I've thought of leaving my marriage many a time. But sometimes you're forced to reflect and you realize that it's what is lacking in your life, so you take charge of yourself/your life and do what you can to make it better. Through these feelings that I had towards my husband, I found I was projecting my own frustrations onto him. It's too easy to play the blame game. Lacie, you really need to explore your marriage much deeper. Maybe you're angry at him for a number of (unknown) reasons; and chances are he's probably feeling the same frustration too. But instead of immediately checking out, I think you guys need some professional marriage counseling. It will take honest communication on both your parts. Best of luck.
Apr 21, '04Occupation: Listener Joined: Dec '03; Posts: 44; Likes: 1scrub270, No need to apologise. My wife thinks you are very perceptive.
And I would pity a patient under my nursing care too, which is why my wife is the nurse. I came here to seek advice for a problem she had at work.
MellowOne, however, seems a bit of a SNAG so he will probably appreciate your apology.
