  •  But you ARE growing apart (4+ / 0-)

    In many of the same ways other couples grow apart. One spouse may gain a great deal of weight and is no longer physically appealing to their partner. One spouse gets deeply involved in new interests and a new circle of friends - maybe suddenly wanting to dance the night away at country western bars when staying home and watching classic movies together on DVD used to be the norm. Or both agree that having children is a major goal, then one decides they aren't ready - but by the time they think they might be ready the old biological clock will have ticked over past midnight.

    Some couples overcome these things, many don't. And if the solution is for one partner to swallow their own happiness and life goals to keep the relationship, that is not a happy answer either.
