could/ would you divorce for just unhappiness? no cheating, no abuse, just straight up unhappiness and some arguing? and no sex, no romance, just roomates basically, and your husband wont go to counceling with you? but then again......divorcing would upset and sadden your families.....all this......you still do have some good days dont get me wrong.....like....still getting along some......but still not.......marriage-like?

No way.  This is the part of "marriage" where the most work is done.  To me, "commitment" means choosing to make it work.  FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE.  If my dh abused me I'd leave him for sure, but unhappiness needs to be resolved by ME.  Happiness is created within.. it is NOT the spouse's responsibility to make a person happy, it is the person's responsibility.  Try to get a hobby, make time for yourself, do things YOU enjoy, and come home and share them with your husband!  REMIND yourself WHY you loved him in the first place, or at least why you married him, and convince yourself to get back to that place.  On your own.  Good luck.

My mom always told me happiness is the key to marrige. If your not happy your not really married. However you just have to look at the repercussions before you do anything.

Absolutely not.  We all go through hard times, and the grass is never really greener on the other side.  All men have their own issues  - as do all women.
