Moved out of my house yesterday. (55M). She was surprised. We hadn’t spoken to each other in weeks except for brief words.
Married 21 years, together 25. Two kids, one in university one in high school.
Happy enough together, I guess, but felt more like friends with benefits. No real intimacy, no kissing or cuddling. A minute after the act she was on her cell phone. In the last five or six years, we had one holiday together. With kids.
This is the first time I left, not the first time we’ve had this issue. I always said it was lack of sex (twice a week since our last ‘talk’ a couple of years ago, but it feels like she’s doing a chore), but recently realized it was lack of intimacy. Even after three weeks of no real talking, she didn’t ask what was wrong. I didn’t say.
Wondering what the f*ck I just did. All I want to do is take back what I did and move home.
