  • Yes, but it doesn't always mean the end of the relationship. You can work hard and fix things and bring back that bond. Now if you are talking about growing up and having different moral views, that's another story. You might need to be more specific. But it's 100% possible to grow apart. You just need to figure out if he's work saving things with.

  • Okay, my husband works 12hrs a day. He gets paid salary and I feel like a single parent.

  • That's not growing apart (imho) its life. Things change. Have you tried communicating your feelings to him. One thing that needs to go with communication is a respect for the feelings of the person you are communicating with. That's a small thing. Let him know what you need. If he loves you as you do him he will be willing to reach within himself and pull something out that he might not even know is there.
