I’m 66, married for 43 years and quite frankly I cannot keep up this charade. My husband is lazy, selfish and thinks my job is to clean up after him. I am retired and in I’ll health although managing reasonably well day to day.
We own our house, probable value c£200k so there certainly won’t be enough money to buy somewhere local. I would be perfectly happy to move well away, possibly into Wales. I have very little savings.
How do I start to unpick 43 years of marriage?
My dad is fully understanding, my do doesn’t yet know. I fully expect my very elderly parents to be exceedingly disapproving and quite possibly to disown me.
I just want to be happy.
Please can anyone advise me?
