I’m not in love with my wife anymore.
My wife and I have been together since we were 18 years old, we are 36 now. For the past 18 years, this woman has been everything to me.
She has supported me in ways that I never even knew were possible. She has given me 2 beautiful kids and I will always be grateful, but I’m just not in love with her anymore
People like to say “well you don’t just wake up one day and just decide you don’t love someone anymore.” But that’s how it happened for me, she didn’t do anything to cause this riff and it isn’t because we’ve had major problems in our marriage, or that I don’t find her attractive.
To this day, my wife is the most beautiful woman I have ever laid eyes on, but beauty has nothing to.do with anything and I just can’t explain why I’m not in love with her anymore.
I feel awful, I feel like the world’s most terrible person because who does this? Who just wakes up after 18 years together and just decides they don’t want it anymore even though everything in your life/marriage has been for the better since knowing your spouse…me, apparently.
My wife will always be my best friend and she will always hold a special place in my heart, but it would be wrong for the both of us for me to try and live a life that isn’t true to me.
Now I have to look this amazing woman in the eyes and hurt her, and I never wanted to do something like this, but she deserves someone who will always and unconditionally be in love with her.
