Alpar80 Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 I just dont think I am cut to be a married man. Ive tried the books, tried listening, and tried working it out but just cannot seem to find the sweet spot. I havent been married much more than 6 months now and I have a kid with my wife. I just have this strong drive of leaving all the time, it is the type of person I am and have always been, I need my space alot and I find relief on the road. It seems that being married I am so restricted and choked out, I cant find happiness due to this and whenever she is around I feel that I am backed into a corner. I hate not having the freedom to do what I want to. Everytime this happens I lash out and tell her how I feel and how I dont want to be with her. She usually lays a guilt trip on me about the family and sooner or later I will come around, but I know this would happen again. Could it be that I am just not the type of man to settle down. Everyone I know was shocked when I got married, they were like I could never picture you "settling down", well the thing is I am not settled down and I think she is trying to tame me. I just feel that I am like a drifter and I cant be in one place. Sometimes I feel like I am going to jump out of my skin. I know this cant go on, please help me figure this one out. Any guys facing the same probs? Is there a way to get your wifes to just let you do what you want? I feel like a 6 yr old sometimes always asking permission to do things! Link to comment
