I have this sincere thought... People come in to our lives for a reason... Is it the ever ending, after? Or, just at that time a reason?
You know your past your present and your future.
You know my answer.
Paying a thousand against a lease is "not" marriage, it's "not" a mortgage on a house, a "let" garage, it's 4 - 6 weeks rental fee, at $350? worse? $1400 x 4, $2100 thereabouts by 6, half of that a grand.
Not a Mortgage 50/50, but $1000...
I think you know your answer and I am so sorry, so sorry but I'm betting, intuition said "15 years sounds good", to later "15 years and holding on".
I said this to my Father on Xmas Day and a few times in threads, after over 2yrs being here? posts? seems to be a pattern of baggage and seems to be we let go and are ready to move on but sometimes, a male person can not, his marriage and what was taken scares the carp out of him, seems the men get screwed more, let's face it.
In mine, I'm still working it out but at this stage, other way round. But, I get, that in general, man has to start again.
That makes him more bitter? I think so.
How to you get them over it Happy? I have no friggen idea, that was "my" problem with "my marriage" then he became emotionally and verbally abusive including thumping his feet and opening my door and scaring me.
That was his prob, that is his prob. He will not be happy in life, yet you, have seen something that you never had before, better than before which tells you there is now even better to come
You've realized, that Lordy, you've shown your worth, you've shown your not asking for marriage, geez just sharing a bond, yet still "entrapement"...
I wish all people in life saw each person for themselves, instead of a gender, ......
Ensuring he can't see you for a month may just be the key you need to see what he will lose.
But, I wouldn't agree. I believe that this is not the only "no" he has stated over things to do with togetherness.
So, what do you have to loose?
See if he can compromise seeing as you've tried and he ignores, via you leaving with, no ultimatum rather, we can't communicate and agree. Because reality is, if you can't compromise? Then what is there?
Thinking of you.
