The Silent Marriage: Finally found the answer.

After 24 years of marriage, I have finally found the answer.

This book totally describes my life with my husband perfectly. Out of balance, off kilter, just not right but never being able to put my finger on it.Confused, feeling unloved, going a little more crazy as each year passes.
His secrets, lies, withholding information, hiding things from me, justification for everything he did, the stonewalling, the silent treatment, not talking for weeks, etc. etc. and on and on.
I was his adversary, but I could never convince him to stop. He battled me on everything. I could not figure out WHY? I reminded him over and over we were on the same TEAM. I could never get through to him. All the years of wasted energy, feeling like I have been through a war.
I have become emotionally, mentally, and physically ill trying to be married to this man.Exhausted with no self-esteem or self-confidence left, I have realized there is no hope and I don’t want to spend the rest of my life never getting any of my emotional needs met. Now on to the next chapter, trying to get away from him and divorce.
Thank you Nora, for helping me realize I am not the crazy one.
I am sad. I think about how my life and my children’s lives could have been, had I married a normal, loving human being. I could have spent years focusing more on my girls than my crazy-making husband/relationship. I spent years being angry and depressed, my normal loving personality shot to hell. Everyone saw him as the nicest guy in the world and thought I was the crazy one. Actually, I was – he made me that way.
My advice to anyone – get away from them if things seem not-quite-right.
I only wish I could have done it long ago.
