Head or heart?

The inheritance my husband is about to receive is probably the only chance I'll have for financial stability in my lifetime. We could pay off our debts and buy a house - something I never thought would be possible. I'm disabled, unemployed, and have only meagre government benefits to my name. This money would change my life.

But I'm so unhappy with him, and want a divorce. Seeing as I'm overweight, unattractive, and have severe mental health issues, I doubt anyone else would ever want me, so there's a part of me that thinks I should be pragmatic, accept I'll never be truly happy, make the best of it, and at least have security and companionship. And that makes me a horrible person.

  • Umm do him a favor and leave. Holy cr*p you sound like a terrible wife, and not because of your weight or illness. You are just a rotten person.

  • Money is not going to make it any better, in fact it's going to make your life worse. Get off your duff and go lose weight and make your self happy. You can't expect outside pleasures to make you happy.

  • Money won't make you happy. Loose weight. Do exercise. Look up. Be positive.

  • Quit feeling sorry for yourself. Get in shape and be a better wife unless he hits or verbally abuses you.

  • Well lose some weight. Make him want you.
