Long term relationships
Was married for 10 yrs, lived with him for 8 yrs...he was selfish, never spent time with me or the three kids. We divorced
Raised kids alone and no monetary help. Single for 17 yrs. Tried the married thing again. Made it 5 yrs in his isolation from friend and family. Single last 14 years but in relationship with someone for 7 yrs.
I am already being driven crazy by his predictability and money hoarding. In 7 yrs he has never put one dollar in the offering at church. If it is not on sale or free he doesn't get it.
If he bought me a card or present for holiday or birthday or valentine's I would fall over from shock.
May be time for me to move on since I seem to allow a relationship for abt 7 yrs before I pick it apart.
Some people just are not meant to be half of a couple. Guess I am one of them.
