How do you define living apart? I think it is alot more common than you think. Just because everything looks good on on the outside does not mean it is not dying within 4 walls.

At present I am in a separate bedroom, I got fed up of the lying to my face about the drinking. We live our lives for the most apart, though we see each other at home, have general chit chat and occasionally go out for dinner, etc. It is not ideal. He says I made the choice to take all my stuff and move out of the bedroom, he is giving me my space, LOL, that is nice so big of him! I always bring up his past, he cannot get emotional now, he doesn't want to fight. I do not respect him, etc etc. I know he is in a bit of a depression because the business is not going well, I know I could be the supportive wife but I just don't have it in me right now. Sadly when I was in a similar situation, he said he didn't know what to do with me and went out partying and drinking. I ought to do the same, but that is not who I am.

Hard to respect someone who treats you as an afterthought.

Space may help a relationship, to help let things settle. OR it can just put the final nail in the coffin of a dying marriage.

@aine I meant like actually living in different homes.

I don't know what she means by it, but that is my situation currently. We lead totally separate lives.

I get what you mean though.
