I could see where that would make it harder. Maybe it's time to start working on your relationship with your DH so that when you are empty nesters the two of you can help each other through it.
Quoting Momm2dands:Thanks everyone! I know I need to get a plan. I guess the new year is making it more real for me. The biggest problem is that my husband and my relationship really isn't the best. The idea of being left here with just him is not exciting to say the least. (Wow! That was honest of me! )
We are still a year maybe 2 before we are empty nesters but we are already preparing I guess. DH and I spending more time alone. I've been taking different classes such a quilting, and volunteering. My suggestion would be to just think of things that you are interested in and start doing them now so that the empty nest won't hit you so hard
