Why don't men have as many hobbies as women?
I was forced into retirement at age 62 and was disappointed this happened and struggled for several years. However, I developed many hobbies and a large group of friends.
When he retired, he was shocked that I was gone many days of the week and I told him to find a hobby. He loves to play golf but his "buddy" was often hindered from playing by his wife and then his health. SO no golf - find others to play with, go volunteer and the local VFW, etc.
He spends hours using the computer sitting on his lap in front of the TV and playing on his phone.
We have traveled extensively in the past but with COVID life has changed and so has our relationship. COVID isn't only killing people, it is killing marriages.
He thinks that not having a hobby is my problem - not his. Married 46 yrs. Time to make a list - why should I stay - benefits of leaving.
