Irreconcilable differences drove us apart
My partner started out very free spirited and open minded about planning our future. We liked being together under whatever circumstances, rough or good. Bad situations always had a glimpse of hope as long as we were together.
One thing I could not get around was his controlling mother. She started off being this self-righteous biddy. She could not rest until she was in charge of every aspect of her son's life. She treated me very disrespectfully and very degrading. My husband never defended me...ever. The not defending me part is just the beginning of the voyage of destruction.
Upon the decision to have kids, everything was great. We moved in together and things couldn’t have been better.
When I lost my job, we had no choice but to move in with my in-laws. Things went down-hill from there.
He became a homebody, which I am not even close to being. He would become upset it I made plans and he did not want to attend any social functions. His attitude became sour. I could not handle him trying to keep me and the kids home with him. It just became too much for me.
