Being’s that this is MPSIMS, I want to say to the community that I am lonely and it’s driving me crazy. Sometimes I feel that my skin is peeling off (TMI)
Last year, my recent marriage of seven years fell apart due to wife’s infidelity online. I said it before, and I’ll say it agian:
The Internet: You will never find a more retched hive of scum and villainany.
Cue one year later. I find myself missing being a husband and a part of a greater whole. I miss wearing the ring on my finger and being proud of being a husband to (what I thought) was the woman I was to spend the rest of my life with.
Even my small, modest house seems bigger (and so much more quieter) nowadays.
How is it that women can so easily disregard a long-term relationship (not to mention the vows that they took) and just cast aside so much that was built together? Do marriage vows mean so little nowadays? What happened to “death do you part”?
With that said, what is the point of marriage, when it can so easily be cast aside?
I was the proverbial Good Husband™. There literally wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t make a conscious effort to be such. Maybe I tried too hard…
Please forgive my pathetic ramblings. I’m just so confused and hurt right now. Even after One Full Year. After this, I don’t think that I’ll ever be to the point of trusting another woman enough to give her my heart.
Which, unfortunately, gives into the male stereotype that “men are unwilling to commit”. I’ve had three potentials so far in the past year, and all of them brought up marriage in the first few days of conversation (I haven’t even met them yet, and they’re bringing up marriage conversations, for crying out loud)
What are your opinions? Am I pathetic? Do I need to just check out of the dating scene and be a father to my daughter until she’s 18 or do I need to address my needs and find someone else (temporary or otherwise?)
Or so I need to take my time and heal and let Come What May?
