I am in a 28 year relationship. We’ve never married. He never asked until 3 years ago, and I politely said no. He never questioned why. It is because I take marriage very seriously and I no longer love him. I haven’t for quite some time. We have a 23 year old daughter together. I always put others needs before my own. By doing so, I am very lonely and exhausted. I have a full time job and I do all of the chores around the home with no help from him. Inside and outside of the house. Yard work, cooking, cleaning, everything! I have not loved him in 6 years and want to move forward with my life. I want to start living life. I am asking for prayers because I am terrified that I am going to lose my daughter and other family members because of my decision. I am praying for strength and prayers that they will understand and be supportive of me. I do not want to hurt my boyfriend but I also do not want to live my life barely existing. I wish him the best and all I want is to sort things out and move forward in separate directions. Thank you for your prayers!!
