Unfulfilled but committed


Life is not perfect. Only 25% of people who get married are really right for each other. The others take it too lightly or do it as an obligation or for all the other wrong reasons. Then come the children, changes in life, duties and responsibilities and so on and so on. Is divorce always the answer? I don't think so. Am I the only one out there? Are there married women who feel committed but unfulfilled?

Where do u fit in tht 75%? My philosophy was initially to remain together for the kids sake. Then it became i can be miserable and less stressed on my own. so i decided to wait til i felt a peace about asking for a divorce. it took almost 2yrs. but a person and only take so many broken unfulfilled promises. and eventually u just loose the "loving feelin"

So then youre down to volleying back and forth "do i want to live the rest of my life w/this person?" but u hv to remember all the tangibles youve accrued. so which is more important, ive asked myself?
Peace of Mind! But thts not to say tht i hvnt wavered in feeling the need to return to tht same environment. why? because there's safety in numbers and there is tht cushion of not having everything dependent on just me.

For me, divorce is what I can live w/compared to what was being offered. And the kids seem to have adjusted well.
