I have been married for 5 months and I have asked my husband for a divorce. I had noticed that we have no privacy in our lives. My husband told his parents everything that occured in our home. I felt the need to always say "dont tell anyone" whenever I said something to him. Also, he is very attached to his family and still has a bank account with his mother. He refused to join a joint account which we had set up for us. I really didnt have much going into the marriage but my husband had a house and multiple vehicles. He constantly told me that I was jealous of what he had and that I came into the marriage with nothing. I got really tired of hearing this. I asked for a divorce on grounds that I couldnt give him what he wanted, that is a wife who would listen to all the abuse, accept the fact that there was no combined finances and accept the non-privacy. My husband thought it was completely normal to be intertwined with his family this way. All I wanted was a man who was mature, and I didnt see this in him. We had gone for a few counselling sessions, but my husband refused to go back. He kept saying that I was the weird one who didnt have any close connections with family and that there was something wrong with me.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
