I Have Fallen Out Of Love With My Husband But I Do Not Know How To Tell Him – What Should I Do?
Aug. 06, 2020
I am Lucy, a 30 year old Human Resource Manager for a reputable company in Ghana. I have been married for four years and my husband and I live together with our children at Kwashieman.
I must confess, I love the fact that my husband is very ambitious but his obsession with money and the craze to impress other people is what is breaking our marriage. My husband was my everything and I truly loved him but the love I had for him died over time because he did not really care about my emotional and physical needs and did not put in any real efforts into meeting them.
We hardly spend together as a couple. He always out and even when he is at home on holidays, we do not spend enough quality time together. All he does is work. Making love felt like it was a chore for him and I hate it, the fact that I have been neglected for far too long by someone who calls himself my husband.
It wasn’t about the money my husband had. I just wanted his love, affection, and his time. I got used to whatever was going on and I don’t think I want this marriage any longer. My husband and I are practically living like roommates and it does not look like he knows how his actions have affected me. I have fallen out of love with him and funny enough I don’t feel sad.
I want to tell him that I want a divorce but I do not know how our family members will take it. I don’t want my children to grow up in a broken home too. What should I do?
