Might as well be...she will stay out all night drinking and sleep all day. She has no job except for an occasional theatre gig. She doesn't even come to bed until I get up for work. I do the cleaning, cooking, and pay the bills.

That's how I've always felt about marriage as well. You made a promise, a vow, an oath. We didn't have traditional vows but what I said that day meant something to me. Still does, that's why this is ripping me up inside. I said from the beginning to them that due to my father cheating on my mom while I was growing up and causing their marriage to fail, that anything short of that one act I could forgive and get through.
It's just so very hard to realize that I cared and loved so very much more. I loved so hard I was willing to swallow my pride and say I was wrong when I most definitely wasn't on many occasions. I see now that was probably a mistake, but I kept telling myself "big picture, greater good, keep soldiering on."
