I Was Excited About a Big Change in My Life

There were so many things I tried to get my husband to become interested in over the years, but not matter how much I begged and pleaded, he didn’t care. I finally got to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. After asking for a divorce, my best friend suggested that I move to her state. She mentioned that some beautiful Forestville MD apartments had just been built right down the street from her house. I had been wondering what I was going to do after I left the house I shared with my husband. I wasn’t sure of where to go, and the idea of moving closer to a friend who cares about me seemed like such a great idea that I decided to go for it. I needed to be around someone who respects me.

When I first met my husband, he was very attentive. He was happy to say yes to going to many of the things that I suggested that we do for dates. When it was his turn to come up with a date, he never did more than take me to a restaurant. That wasn’t a big deal to me at the time because it didn’t set off any flags. He was happy to do things that I wanted to do, so it just wasn’t anything that tipped me off. But after I married him and we were no longer going out on actual dates, he became even more complacent. He just wanted to stay at home. Again, this didn’t really tip me off that anything was amiss.

After years of my husband just wanting to sit home on the couch when he was home, I knew there was a problem. Life is too short to sit around year after year. It was time for me to go, and I was so grateful for the offer to move to Maryland. I could not wait for the change of scenery and starting over again.
