Love him or Leave him?

Question: If married to a workaholic for 36 years of married life, does it really help to divorce him? He just can't stop working and he has put me in this odd situation of there is no way out except to possibly commit suicide!

Dear Kris,
First let me start by saying if you are having feelings of hurting yourself, you must call 911 immediately and get help. As for your question, I'm wondering why now? You have been married to a workaholic for many years. So that is not new. It seems that you have tolerated his work style up until now. Has something happened recently that you are now having thoughts that you need a change? Maybe you need something in your life separate from your marriage that brings you fulfillment. Have other things in your life changed? Maybe you are misguided in assigning your feelings to your marriage, and maybe it really has to do with something else going on in your life. I suggest you engage in some therapy to further explore the "why now" question. Or some self-reflection to determine the real precipitant for these feelings of wanting a possible divorce. It's not about your husband's work schedule. Let us know how it goes.
