So the wife has been bringing up in conversation lately; when she is talking with other people how she says that she would like to move out of the area, but she knows I don't want to. I don't mean to over react or anything, but maybe ten years is long enough. Here is my take on things.
Remember how you felt when you graduated college. The world was yours for the taking. You wanted to get out there spread your wings and do great things. Well she graduated just two years ago, and she wants to get out in the world and make her mark. I, on the other hand, graduated 22 years ago. I have archived a level of success in my career. I have created a home for myself, and that is where I want to be. There is no doubt in my mind that she is capable of doing great things. I want her to be happy, and I don't want to stand in the way of her happiness. I wonder how that "crucial conversation" would go.
"There are no good guys,
There are no bad guys.
There's just you and me,
And we just disagree."
