This is a curious thing really - no no... it's not an issue
It's a backburner issue if anything, something we're burying... I'm happy when it comes to marriage, my wife has given me the family I've never had, and love that at certain points in my life I doubted even existed (And sometimes, I still doubt exists, then she proves me wrong once again!)
But some regrets sting, like an old sore wound that can never heal. It's actually vice versa too with my wife; both of us made alot of sacrifices to be together and to have what we have right now. We've both abandoned our dreams, and due to circumstances beyond our control, we can never live them yet still stay married.
On both sides there is intolerance, my issue is with the "patriots" and "nationalists" of my homeland, despite being born in a different country - I still have a part of me loyal to my people. They despise me for abandoning our dwindling bloodline (by marrying my wife), as our people have intermixed "racially" way too much in history and many have forgotten who we are. We're too few to the point to the point I'm careful to who I declare my pride to - as I do not want others to have a negative impression of my people (I'm always an emissary)...
While I have made my decision, sometimes I do regret what I've done, broke the commitments that realisticly must be upheld for our people and culture to survive admist being a minority where-ever we go and globalisation.
Now my wife's issue is with the church, as her beliefs has drifted further and further away from the doctrine the longer she stuck around with me, making her unable to find the support she needs to open up her own church where she had wanted to dedicate it to complete tolerance, acceptance, and non-judgemental attitudes towards any and all - including and especially women of her past profession.
She admits she does think about it sometimes but told me that she believes this is where her god wants her to be. Me... I don't have the luxury of faith. I know that I will NOT abandon my wife and daughter, but it does pain me to know that I'm contributing to my people's extinction. How does one deal with a regret like that?
