has anyone grown apart from their spouse?

My husband is a good man, husband and father. However, as I've gotten older and matured, the things that attracted me to my husband just get on my nerves and piss me off, and things that used to not be important to me seem super important, now. There are times where I think, you wouldn't have a friend who thinks/acts like this so why are you married to someone who does?? Can anyone relate to this? Bueller?

I just don't know how to fix it. I don't know if it's just me being nit picky, or more major than that.

This is going to sound horrible but I told him to get his shit together or in 3 months I was leaving him. A week later he was diagnosed with bone cancer. I stayed and took care of him but I was very resentful.

I ended up going to therapy on my own because I felt so "stuck". That helped me immensely and I stopped being so angry all the time. He passed away after three years and I miss him. I don't know what would have happened if he hadn't gotten sick, but the therapy was a Godsend. There is nothing wrong with being happy! Good luck to you.

I can absolutely relate to this. We've been married almost 20 years though. I'm not ready to throw all of that away, so here I am.

Yes. I realized the issue was me and not her. We were open about needing to work on us. We fell in love again and are stronger than ever 3 years later. Good luck

I can relate to this too. He is a good man, a good father, yet I don't have that crazy in love feeling anymore. We've been married for 20+ years, and like another mom said, that is a lot of time to just throw away. Plus I want my kids to have an intact home. My best friend gave me great advice, after divorcing her long time husband and getting remarried: different man, different shit.
