Over 50 and thinking of divorce

I have been married for more than 17 years to a long distant truck driver. Every year, we say its the last year for the Trucking, but my husband cannot replace the freedom of being his own boss.

The children we have are all grown and into their own lives, and I, the Wife, is left alone again and again.

The husband now is too comfortable with the life style and I, the waiting Wife, can't wait any longer.

I do not see my husband for 4 to 5 weeks at a time, I am now 57 years old, lonely,
and it seems like the only way out is a divorce.

Truck driver's wives have a tough time.

Life is way too short to be unhappy NEW
by: Anonymous

If you have given every effort to change things around and your husband shows no interest in making you a part of his life, then I'd be filing for a divorce.
Don't go cheating on him , it will complicate things and it will get ugly,
If you love him, go talk to a marriage counselor and seek advice to help bring a positive change, you never know it could be just what you need.
But if you have tried everything and feel in your heart that you would be happier without him then go for a divorce. I'd split everything 50/50 and go your separate ways. Just remember to keep it clean, he will go along with whatever you decide if you keep it fair honest and be respectful , his pride will be falling apart and he will be desperate to hang on to everything if you don't go easy on him.
Us guys don't take rejection very well but if you talk it through with him and get his opinion it should go well for ya.
Good luck, I hope and pray you find what is best for you both. God bless

Sometimes I wonder??? NEW

Sometimes I wonder where people get their ridiculous answers from???

Men want younger women? Give me a break!! Where the heck do you live on planet Mars????

Ms. 57 years old you should go to a counselor because on this site you will hear the most ridiculous and immature advice on this planet.

You will benefit more from a professional and not some juvenile remark.

Good luck.

My advice NEW
by: Anonymous

My advice to you is to go along with your husband in his truck!!! Since all of your children are grown and gone, that would be a great opportunity! Do you think your husband would let you go with him? I've gone a couple times with my husband and it is very fun!! You would be lonely no more! Best regards.

look at the big picture NEW
by: Anonymous

I'd just go about your life as though you were single, and if you find someone that you can have a more fulfilling life with, file for a divorce. There's a lot of messed up people out there. People your age or a bit older, have financial issues from being divorced, and bad attitudes, not to mention your age group or older, have medical issues with no medical insurance. Look at the big picture. I know lots of people who left their spouse, because they were lonely, and were just as lonely afterwards, because older men, want younger women, or because they're burnt out on relationships, and just want to be friends with benefits.
