Oh duh!!!    :dunno:


Well has anyone else responded?  I know some people think this is a secret to hurt for missing our children.  We all go thru it, and we all survive, but talking to others that know what it's like sure helps

My husband and I have everything in common.  After reading your alls comments, I appreciate that more now.  Before I thought it was weird.  It's like we're becoming each other in a way. 


I hope it's okay to reply to older threads.  I just like the topic.

It's good to reply and bring attention to old threads because you dont know who they will help today.
I'm happy for you, Maggie. You have a marriage like it's supposed to be.  We all think we are marrying our best friend,  but darn if I know where it all goes south..  WAke up one day and see it was all a lie.

We were friends for years before we got married, but I sometimes think we've meshed into one giant monster rather than having separate identities.  We've even gotten to where we dress the same.  And believe me, it's not on purpose. 


So, why can't you take a weekend off with your gal pals?  Time away can help tremendously.  I didn't go off much when the kids were around and we couldn't have paid for a trip either, but heading to my sisters for a weekend was doable. 


Nette, I hope you're doing okay today!

I let mine go way back when. Not that I'm recommending that! I was doing it all on my own anyway and he'd appear just to gum up the works. Thankfully he didn't completely disappear like some men do. He's close to the girls and we can hold up a conversation.


I do notice that jobless men can be clingy. They just don't know what to do with themselves. Part of why I always admired my father. He ended up retiring before he was ready, but stayed busy with his garden, wood carving and the like. There's always something out there if you want to find it!

Maggie that's so good that you are that close.  I see couples like that that even walk similar..  lol  It's cute and you can tell they are the best of friends.


CatMom,  that's what the retired bored male or females need, are hobbies!   I can keep busy all day and my husband sits..  he naps,  goes out to smoke and comes in and sits..  I can think of 100 things he could do but he has to want to do something!

It's crazy how when the kids are gone you notice things that you didn't before. Hang in there, kidless, you married him for a reason, right?

I am in the almost exact situation as Kidless.  My daughter has gone to college and we moved into our vacation home after we sold the primary residence (at the unhappiness of my daughter).  We decided that we could like a much better quality of life there  Did your kids have a fit as well, Kidless?  They don't think about what we want, just that we "should have left the house to them".

Nette, my heart goes out to you because you are such a fighter and God bless you for your big heart. I'm sure that in a way, hubby feels and appreciates your kindness. As for my case, we don't have a lot of similarities. We watch different shows and have varied preferences but above all, he few things that we agree on, have kept us going.

Cherie and Maggie,
thank you so much for your kind words.
Daughter has moved out by now and we manage. Son still living here, but rarely home, busy studying plus friends plus girlfriend.
I restarted husband on therapy (physical and language) again, hoping it would help (plus he is gone twice weekly :039: ), but I do not see a great difference. He still is friendly, helpful, but like a shadow, living beside me but at a distance. When I am well I think I can manage till the end, when I am down, I want to scream.
Yeah,well, things could probably be worse.
