How do you tell someone you want a divorce, when you still care
Advertisements [?]
about them?

This is my dilemna. My husband is a good guy, but IMHO, the marriage is not good. Hasn't been for a long time. It would be easier were he an asshat, but he's not. I consider him a good friend, and someone I value very much in my life.

Truth to tell, I've made up my mind that it would be best for me to leave, but damn it, I hate the thought of hurting him. OTOH, I hate the thought of me continuing in this marriage which to me is empty of something that is very important to me.

Shit! In the long run, the best thing I could do would be to release the both of us. But I'm feeling scared about it. I need to quit being such a chicken.
