Thank you. I did try and find other ways of going out with new friends and he didn't like it and that's when it all kicked off. So now i feel trapped. He still says he loves me and wants me to stay but he's not stopping me from leaving.
The next day that I went out, he started to have a go at me because he felt that we're leading separate lives, He admits now that he's old fashioned (even though he's younger than me) and expects me to stay at home prepares dinner for him for when he gets in from the pub and then he's so drunk that he goes to bed at 9pm. I've told him that it makes me feel lonely and sad. His response is that he's sorry and the following week is back to same.
My fear is if I leave will I be better off or I'm kidding myself?
Thanks Dr. Jackie. I need time to reflect on what you said. I;ll be going on a week holiday on my own and my husband expects me to give him an answer whether I'm staying or not when I get back next week - no pressure!!
