Ask Anne: Relationship Advice

Relationship Questions

Duty vs. Freedom

I haven't been happy in my marriage for sometime now - my husband is a wonderful man, but shortly after we wed his children came to live with us. Bad idea, I have been very unhappy about this. Our sex life is good for him, I am disappointed day after day. Recently was in touch with the man I should have married 25 years ago - he is separated now. We met and I felt all the old feelings come alive, but he felt guilty. I think we could work things out between us, especially since it is obvious that we still love each other after all these years. My husband is not interested in counseling - says he is happy with his life the way it is. Do I have to look forward to the rest of my life through grey lenses, or should I go for a chance at a life with my soulmate again?
