My wife and I have had the same fight for years and I am becoming very resentful of her because nothing ever changes. In a nutshell, my wife is a “shopaholic.” She seems to be unable to stop spending money and it is often on really stupid things.
For example, when I left for work this morning she was outside decorating the front door and yard with the 100s of Halloween items she has purchased over the years. Don’t even get me started on her obsession with Christmas crap and expensive antiques which just go into the basement or garage because our house is already full.
I am a 32 year-old woman living with my boyfriend Chris for 6 years. We are very committed and in love and both have chosen against marriage.
I’m a 27-year-old medical student. Nine months ago my boyfriend (26) of three years, also a med student, broke up with me and said he still loves me but needs time to figure out whether or not he wants to make things work.
I was divorced several months ago and although I was stunned when my wife left me, I made the best of things and made certain we had a drama-free divorce and maintained a good relationship so we could successfully co-parent our two young children, both of whom are happy and thriving now.
