I am a 29 year old female who got married in August of 2011. From the very beginning my relationship with my husband began to deteriorate. I recently left him because I felt that our problems could not be worked out. He refuses to keep a job, does not help me around the house with chores whatsoever, and is generally nasty to me. I have a very stressful job working in a prison, and need someone to talk to who will at least attempt to be sympathetic to the things I see and deal with at work. All he does is play video games all day long and eat all of our food. I feel like I have a teenage son, not a husband and life partner. However, I am now feeling bad about leaving. Since I left, he won't answer my calls, texts or emails. I'm just trying to make sure he at least found a new place to live and a job. Our lease ended when I left, and obviously I didn't renew it. Was I in the wrong for leaving? Should I feel bad for leaving? I don't know what to do anymore! I feel like my life is in turmoil between my hectic job and my failing marriage. It's all I can do to get up and go to work in the morning.View Thread
