Dating an unhappy married man

Communicate with your partner and talk to your friends.

If your needs seem justified, you have a right to expect it from your partner.

More often than not, even if you’re stuck in a marriage that doesn’t give you happiness, you’d choose to ignore the red signs.

After all, it’s easy to ignore something instead of dealing with the mess of having to fix something when you’re not sure what you need to do.

If you’re experiencing this grand state of telepathy in your marriage, that’s awesome!

But at the same time, you may constantly find yourself grumbling or whining within your own mind about how much better it could have been if your partner was more involved in satisfying your needs. This is a contradiction to the earlier sign of an unhappy marriage, but this is a valid point too. And you may have needs that just can’t be fulfilled by your partner. Do you compromise for the sake of your marriage or do you walk away?

There’s a thin line between expectations and reality.

] Many of us lead our lives this way, believing that love and marriage is nothing but a support system where you have someone to rely on, for emergencies and family gatherings. But when we have to introspect, all we have are blind spots spread over all our flaws.

It’s just something we need, to fit within the rules of society. Even if you caught your partner cheating, there’s probably a good reason that led to the eventual betrayal *unless your lover is a compulsive philanderer or a strumpet*.

Do you feel more comfortable talking to someone else outside the marriage about your secrets?
