SO, does anyone out there know a good divorce attorney??

Ok, so that isn't the most joyous of blog titles. But is sure is how I feel and not the "I am just so spitting angry at my spouse that I am sick and tired of it" kind of, its the "I really pretty much feel like crap most of the time, and I've tried to tell him what is going on and he has flat out stated that its all me and he's NEVER going to change and this is your life" kind of feeling. So how did this all start...well not sure about that but I can sure tell you when it ended. That would be last night driving home from a friend's house when I (stupidly) brought up (again) the fact that he (the spouse) never does ANYTHING to help with Christmas. This spouse feels that its all unnecessary and therefore I should have NO expectations from him. He went on to further state that he doesn't care if we even have decorations or a tree. He actually gets angry about it and when you try to tell him how you feel, he pretty much tells you that your feelings are wrong.

Ok, so that is pretty much it. When I tried to tell him that I feel very disregarded, his response was to be shocked. "Huh?" I believe was his response. When I cited specific examples he pretty much intimated that I was making it up. So, at the end of the "discussion" he stated unequivocally that he was not going to change, wouldn't even consider changing and that as far as he was concerned life was perfect. I still cannot figure that out. How can one person be fine and the other completely devastated. So, what to do now? Pretty much I guess I have to figure this out for myself. Of course we have younger kids and that makes things even more difficult. I guess its a good thing to truly know where your spouse is coming certainly makes certain things easier, but other things that much harder.

Ok, so that's the depressing blog for the day...........pray for me out there in cyber space...I sure need it now!

I'm sad for you that things are rough over the holidays.

Part of it is ringing true for us. I won't go into the details.

Keep your head high and your heart filled with love. Remember the Christmas carols that make you happy and hold fast in your faith in the coming of the Messiah.

Be happy my new friend, I'm praying for you.

You husband seems like a true genius. I mean, Christmas is b.s. really; too much commercialism and too many noisy relatives.

I think your brave Alpha Male, is simply trying to tell you he is a spiritual man, and wishes you would focus more on the really important things in life.

I think you are right!! Your handsome husband seems to be asserting his masculinity by refusing to take part in what appears to be a rather feminizing pagan ritual.

Respect him, and focus your energy on him.
