I’ll try to compress a long story! Been together for 28 years he was amazing at the start, a normal partner albeit a little my way or the highway and the I love you stopped very early, he said he did t need to say that as I should know I kind of come to terms with that. We had 5 DC together who are all adults now two having children of their own. Anyhow the last 10, if I’m generous, 15 if completely truthful, years he has been hell and made my life hell. He would go to work, it’s a family business I don’t work there but two DS do, come home and just sit on the sofa wait for his dinner eat it on the sofa and stay there until he went to bed not saying more that 3 words to us. If something went wrong at work he would take it out on us at home. It’s been like walking on egg shells truly terrible but me and the kids have been okay as we have had each other. He has done nothing around the house I’ve had to do everything from everyday cleaning to fixing and decorating. We have slept in separate rooms for a few years as he snores so loud and I’m a light sleeper. No attempt at sexual contact for years.
So this last couple weeks he has had some kind of epiphany and has ‘realised the error of his ways’ trouble is he is expecting us all, me more to just except his new behaviour. I get I love you texts, not said that since I had my 1st Dc wants to go out for meals be like a normal loving husband etc.
I told him it’s a lot when I have been treated like dirt for that long I can’t just turn it around. I’m literally mentally exhausted and not sure if I can come round from this. I’ve been planning on leaving him now the kids are grown, it’s like he knew that somehow and is acting on it.
