LONG WAY HOME BY STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN
It all started when my husband told me he was so tired of working to much and that Nevada is one of the worst states to find a good paying job. I told him that we could move to another state like California or Texas etc... He said no I would never move out from Nevada. ( My husband has been divorced once and has two boys with past marriage.) I told him why? and he said, he would never abandon his boys. ( I'm 26 weeks pregnant)I told him also I don't want to raise my child here in Las Vegas Nevada, where there is a lot of sexual billboards everywhere, and the strip has cards of naked girls everywhere you walk. I also mention to him that I'm not asking him to abandon his kids, that he can always come every weekend to see the kids and we can get them every time they're on vacation etc... He still said no he wont move out, and if he was moving out it was going to be Mexico where his mom is at, and that he was going to take his kids with him if so. I got very upset and said, so my opinion doesn't count because we aren't coming into a conclusion at all. I was trying to get him to finish this argument with a conclusion that we both agreed on, but he kept walking away from me. (This happened a day after Valentines.) I got so upset and ripped the card that he gave me for Valentines day and threw it at him on this other room where he was going to spend the night, since we were upset. I did end up saying bad things to him like, I wish I never met him the night we met and if I could I would divorced him. Well, we haven't spoke much to each other ever since. My family came down here from California because of my birthday. He kept quite the whole time with me, he didn't even wish me a happy birthday. Our first year anniversary came after my birthday and he didn't even said nothing. I'm waiting for him to come to me so we can finish this conversation, but he keeps acting like nothing ever happened. So, as always I made the first attempt to talk to him and fix this by saying to him that not to worry we can stay here in Las Vegas if he wants to. He still didn't said anything back to me but just "Mmmm". So it's obvious he doesn't want to have any kind of communication about this with me. I'm pregnant and it does hurt me when he keeps quite and doesn't even asks how is the baby doing. I just don't know what to do... I do also work and always kiss him goodbye when I leave to work first, but when he leaves to work first he doesn't even bother kissing me goodbye. I'am praying about this but I'm getting to the point where I want to fix things but also I'm holding back a little to let him know that he has to put his other 50% to make this work. I can't be doing everything myself, then was the purpose of getting married with someone if one person is doing all the work and the other is giving up every time there is an argument. Please pray for my marriage, since I did married him for a lifetime not just for happy days. Thank you and god bless.
