Thank you so much Jarl. We actually do have a child which is why I’ve tried so hard to make it work because I do still love him, he means a lot to me. But it hurts me dealing with his anger and having completely different interests and diet, I’ve just trying to been deciding the “right” thing to do, but at the same time I don’t want to settle even though I really want my daughter to have her parents in the same home and I’m scared of what would happen if we broke up. I know my happiness is important though and I need someone who will inspire me and help me to be better, not drag me down. Thank you so much for your insight.
Question. I’m new to this, so this might sound silly. So is there ever an acceptable reason for divorce? What if you change and become completely different people than when you began dating? Do you just live with that difference and is it selfish to seek a different relationship with someone who is more compatible? Should you stay in a relationship that is very difficult to avoid accidentally searching for external happiness?
I ask because I started dating my boyfriend of 4 years when I was 16 (almost 17) and while we can get along I just feel like we want completely different lifestyles. I don’t want tv or an xbox and he won’t eat anything I cook, I just feel like we’re always clashing and I’m trying to view it from a buddhist and mindful perspective but I’m just getting more confused.
