I was devastated when my husband lost his job as an engineer.
We had been together for 6 years and married for 2, and we had planned on growing our family soon.
He had been working for the same company for the past 5 years, and I knew that he was going to get a promotion soon. But unfortunately, the company suddenly went bankrupt and he was one of the many who lost their jobs.
He tried his best to find another job but those were few and far between. Eventually, he had to take up a job as a Grab driver, which was a far cry from his previous job.
He was still unable to find another engineering job, and this became his only source of income.
I was worried about how this would affect our marriage, as I knew how proud he was of his job. The money he made from Grab was not enough to cover our expenses, and he had to take on extra hours just to make ends meet.
He was always exhausted from the long hours and he was rarely home. I felt like I was slowly losing him, and I was deeply hurt by this.
I had to take up a part-time job to help out with our finances, but this only added to the strain in our marriage.
We rarely had time to talk, and when we did, it was always about money. I felt like he had shut me out, and I was slowly falling out of love with him.
I decided to talk to him about it, but he was so wrapped up in the new job that he barely acknowledged me. I knew that he was doing his best to provide for us, but I could feel that he had become distant. He was no longer the man that I had married, and I could no longer stay in this marriage.
After a lot of thought, I decided to file for a divorce. He was shocked when I told him, but he understood my decision. We had grown apart and I felt that this was the best way for us to move forward.
The divorce process was tough, but we eventually settled our differences and went our separate ways. I was sad to see him go, but I knew that it was for the best. He is now doing much better as a Grab driver, and I hope that he finds happiness in his new life.
While it was a difficult decision, I know that it was the right one. We both had changed and the love that we once shared was no longer there. I’m glad that we were able to part on good terms, and I will always cherish the memories that we shared together.
