  • I don't know. Did you ever have anything in common? I assume since you're on CM you have kids in common. Not having money actually makes divorce easier not more complicated.

  • Find something that you do have in common and work on why the spark is gone. Did you think it was going to be all the mush gush stuff you did while you were dating for the rest of your life? It kills me how everyone treats marraige as no big deal. Why spend the money, time and effort it took to get married if you aren't going to value the relationship.
    Marriage is work, you work on it everyday. Have you been putting full effort in to making it work? Sounds to me like there are communication issues between you and your spouse.
    If you do end the marraige you had better think long and hard about it before you ever get married again!

  • No, you should find things in common, or rediscover things your once had in common in the first place. Marriage is till death, not until you get bored.

  • If you have kids and you two don't fuss and fight, then you should try to work it out.You have no money now.You really will have no money as a single mom.And then you'll have to do it all by yourself.

  • Well, if you never had anything in common maybe it was infatuation. I would say then you could either try to really get to know him and see if you do share any interests. if you have then you should leave. Work really hard for either choice and you will see results. You can do it.

  • No longer having things in common is NOT a reason for divorce. I think people throw away marriages too easily anymore. Marriage is work. plain and simple. You don't get divorced once the newness is gone or the passion or whatever. Try doing new and interesting things together. take a class together.

  • What were your vows for? Make it happen - find a way to reach out to him. Sheesh - the greatest threat to marriage is people like you who see it as disposable.
