I'm really struggling in my marriage. Is this just a rough patch or am I seeing the beginning of the end? Any insight would be appreciated.
I do not feel that this is the beginning of the end. I do think it is just a rough patch.
I sense that you are on two different wave lengths right now and are having a tough time finding the common ground that your marriage was built on. As if you were never friends to begin with. But you were. You were friends... you are friends. I do think you have a solid foundation. No matter how shaky it seems right now. It is a choice to fight for it or to run from it. I know you are not a runner.
It's always difficult when people change and grow. Those around have to feel their way around it too. But acceptance should not now be an option. Acceptance is the rule. For both of you.
