How could it happen

How is it you can fall in love with the man of your dreams., marry him and give him everything he could ever dream of in a wife. A Wife that cooks, cleans, does his laundry, does not have an issue to get up and get a cold beer when he asks, pays his cellphone for a year because he hardly has time to get someplace to pay it. Drops everything for him, whether it be your job, family (children grown), friends to run after him every time he feels like quitting his job. I mean his job requires him to travel, and he is very seldom home, maybe every 2 or 3 months at time. When he decided to quit his job I took my taxi (one I didn't even own) and left the state to pick him up/. I even worked many, many hours during a day and then left late at night to go get him out of state. I never asked for anything in return, I never asked him for money as I was making my own. When the time came and I really needed help from him he was not there for me. I went a week without food, I needed a bill paid and I needed a break from my job as well. Well, as it all turns out, I find out that while he is away on his job he is an alcoholic, though he was not that way when he was home. Now I understand why he was the way he was. I have since decided that I could not continue to live this way anymore. What is the since of having a man in your life if that man is not there for you like you have been there for him? life really sucks to see that it was a complete waste of marriage and a heart so broken that it will take years of healing before you could trust another.

Yes it is sad when this sort of thing happens, there are some people in life who just seem to take and take and take and they just never see the value of what they have in someone that loves them so much they give their all...I know how you feel I have been there done that and I have learnt, this is why i prefer to live alone...I have been taken too many times...I hope things work out for you..

Yes I will be by myself for quite awhile before I ever think about living with someone or marrying again.

Oh Dear, I feel for you. I have been in a bad situation with my husband too recently, and still working on getting my trust to him back and not too suspicious and snappy at him. Be strong dear. Not all people are bad. Some can be a very wonderful person.
