In a feature I call “Your Turn,” in which you, the readers, get to answer the question, I’m presenting the following letter without commentary from me:
Since then, we’ve been living in a one-bedroom apartment over my grandparent’s house. He’s had iffy jobs and I’ve been trying to finish up school. He supports both of us. We have no kids. I am extremely unhappy. He constantly lets me down — broken promises all the time. I am constantly wondering what my life would be like without him. I don’t see us being together forever and I feel like the only reason I stay is so not to hurt his family. We don’t “date” anymore. We just sit at the house and watch TV. Drinking has become a huge part of our lives and that seems to be the only thing we do together.
I want out but don’t know what to do. — Married Young and Fast
