Wife physically, mentally and emotionally tired.

I was preparing my dinner when a friend called again. She was crying and said that she had enough of her husband and wanted to leave. I told her that I am hearing these same words for about 4 years now. Maybe my fried really wants to leave her husband but because of their 2 kids she could not do so. Doing all household chores, waiting for her husband coming late and thinking about his whereabouts drive her crazy. What will you do if as a wife you are already physically, mentally and emotionally tired? How much can you endure for the sake of your children?

I would tell her to leave or shut up about it LOL

I also came to the point of saying that I am tired of listening to her. But of course, she is still my friend and I want her to feel okay. Things would have been easier without the kids in between.

That is why I have dogs instead of kids...kids are too much baggage to be dragging around. I am convinced that anyone thinking of having kids should spend a Saturday at Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza. In the words of Rodney Carrington..."you will leave there and go buy you a dog" LOL

There's a fine line between being a martyr and just living life as is. I think for a person to endure tremendous amount of torment for 4 long years is already living a life of a martyr. I'm so sorry to say this, but it's the truth. Every body are left with options and choices. I would have understood if your friend stayed for 2 years and then walked out the door. But she took it for 2 more years. Now she is exhausted as ever. If a man promises a girl that he would change, he would do it in a heartbeat if he truly cares for the woman he loves. I guess your friend was just given too many false promises.

I already told her that she's a martyr. But I am a mother too, so I understand her struggle to keep the family together for the sake of the kids. I also do not want to see my children growing up in a broken family. So if I still have the power to endure the pain, I think I will do the same. I just hope her husband wakes up soon.

Yes, but then isn't it that staying with a monster like that would also hurt the children? Probably not physically but more importantly -- psychologically.

That is right melloncollie. And usually psychological wounds in children take a very long time to heal. I could understand why she stayed, but for the children's sake she should start thinking about what the effects on them will be.

She should just leave him if that's the case. Marriage should be a give and take but her husband seems to be taking and taking. That's not fair.
