Just recently I got off the phone with my mother and she was hounding me about my husband filing for divorce. She was getting rather personal and was saying that she and my dad feel that it could be from a lack of sex. Well she wouldnt' have asked me that if she hadnt' been talking to my sister. What they don't understand is that my husband hasn't been the same since his auto accident. I've been trying to reconnect with him and getting to know who this stranger is all over again with out any results. We have tried counseling but with little to no results, my husband is just determined to go through with the divorce, and yet somehow my parents feel that I'm the one to blame. I've tried explaining to them, wehn they question about the lack of sex, that he treats me like an object he doesn't see me as a whole person just body parts and I don't like being treated or looked at in that way. I'm a person and I want to be treated like a person. They still don't understand or get it, and my sister isn't much better either. Will they ever understand and accept the inevitable or am I going to have to write them out of the picture, which is a sad thought because I have a daughter. I don't really want to do that but I also don't want to be blamed for something that I can't change (I can't change my husbands mind).

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
