After 21 years of marriage my husband finally admitted that he is never going to have an intimate and caring relationship with me. He's never even going to try. He finally admitted that his priorities are going to be pursuing wealth, high adrenaline hobbies and sports competitions. And of course he wants to maintain a sexual relationship. This was not a heated argument with yelling and insults. It was a very calm discussion that he had put much thought into.
This was not actually news to me because I've been living this reality for more than two decades. But it was very strange to hear him finally admit it. Now I have to finally give up hope.
I have spent 21 years trying to have a deep and meaningful relationship with one of the most shallow people on the planet.
