I haven’t been happy in my marriage for a long time. If it weren’t for my kids I would have left long ago. My husband isn’t a bad person. He isn’t abusive. To the world he’s a nice guy. But he drains me emotionally. We have nothing in common. He has no interest in anything but the mundane of life. OHe’s become nothing more than a presence in our home. And I know that I’d be happier if we were to go our separate ways. The timing is right now that my youngest will be leaving for college in September. What stops me is the fear I have of being alone. I am 57 and I do not want to grow old alone. How have others handled this?
