I am on the verge of leaving my wife. I have talked to her before about how I am unhappy and how I don't feel I am in love anymore - we do argue, but not constantly - I just feel I've fallen out of love.
My question is (and I know it's difficult and extremly subjective) - how do you know for sure? My wife was my only serious relationship and we started going out when I was 17 (she is 13 years older), so I am worried I might just be thinking "what's it like to have a girlfriend / other relationship etc.."
The main thing that makes me think it really *is* over is that I am very sure in myself that if she turned round tomorrow and said she was leaving me or had found someone else, I wouldn't be that unhappy. I would be sad at not being with someone I have lived with for 18 years, but only from the perspective of a friend.
