I was at a family function the other day – I have a pretty big extended family that I rarely see.
I saw some aunties and cousins who I hadn’t seen in at least 10 years.
In a brief ‘catch up’ conversation, one relative enquired,”still happily married?”. To which I continued to smile (as I often do, as is my personality) and replied, nodding,”yeah…”.
A bit of a random question (although the relative in question was divorced), but it made me think…..
I know I definitely have it pretty good and I am grateful for everything in my life.
It takes me back to the question my therapist asked me about what was enough for me….can I live with hubby’s very detached emotional style? With less affection and compliments/ appreciation than I desire?
I do wonder if it’s unfair to hubby that he is unaware of how much I have deliberated but I also know I can’t take anything back once it’s been said.
I think I can live with things, when deliberating all the other good there is about us.
…..but then there’s that pesky sex thing. I don’t know how to illustrate just how little hubby is into sex, but maybe I’m just not right for him? Am I denying him finding someone more compatible in that respect?
