  1. You say it's your last straw, then say you're 'this close' to leaving. I say move. You can still be a caring daughter involved in your mom's life, but yes it will take more effort.

  2. Hi Wiseman, There's no marriage timeline. Neither of us have been married, but both of us have been engaged to people we were in long term relationships with.

We simply can't speak about the troubles we have very effectively. Because of this, and also because of our differing work schedules which keep us apart for days sometimes, we've exchanged emails as a way to get out what's on our minds. We both are better at writing our feelings than we are talking about them. A few weeks ago, he told me he had doubts about us.
