We have been married for over 18 years and the marriage has been very unromantic the whole time. The lack of romance has become unbearable for me. I'm to the point where I don't even want to work on it any more. Yesterday I asked her if she loved me and she couldn't say she did. She just said she cares about me and wants to work on saving the marriage. She started crying and it broke my heart. We can't say we love each other and I have no desire to work on this any longer. I'm ready to leave and begin a new happier chapter of my life but yet I don't want to hurt her. What do I do?
You did not mention children, are there any?
Was there romance in the beginning, if so what took it away? Have you tried marriage counseling, is it an option?You obviously care about her feelings, and she is willing to save the marriage.
I guess I would probably make sure I had done everything to put romance in the marriage before letting it go.Best of luck to both of you.
