Dear aunty
 
I’m wrestling with whether to ask my husband for a divorce. He hasn’t cheated on me, I’m sure about that, nor have I cheated on him. Twenty-two years into our marriage, I just don’t feel any spark for him anymore. He’s a good man and a good father, but I’m not attracted to him at all. Our interests are quite divergent, we barely talk about anything other than big stuff (bills, vacations, errands, etc.), he hasn’t come on to me in years, and I don’t think I’d respond to him if he came on to me today. And it’s not that I’m experiencing some sort of sexual dysfunction; I still harbor deep cravings and I see men all the time I’m attracted to in that way. I do love my husband, always have, but I don’t think I’m in love with him. Actually, I’m sure I’m not. I know we have it better than some long-time couples—we get along, don’t really fight much, we’ve raised great kids who treat us with respect, and we’re in good shape financially as our retirement years near. So maybe I should just be happy with what I have … but I can’t seem to escape this feeling that there’s something more than this, and I’m seeing time slip-sliding away. Can you shed some light? Thank you.
