Ok, this is for a pal. My situation is getting sorted and I am trying to tell him that the grass is greener and he needs to man up!
He has been married for about 7 years now. Two kids later, his wife weighs more than him and is probably 5 stone heavier than when they got married. It has really started to affect everything.
Little things get on his nerves about her all the time, recently it is the snoring like crazy at night. He end's up going to the car so he can sleep, but she just ends up getting pissed at him for being a stupid cunt about it.
Her favourite thing literally is is watching $ky and eating take-aways all day every day oh and Facebook.... it is safe to say there is no hope in sight for their relationship. He has given up on wanting any sexual relationship with her because 1. it was never good to begin with (I know... see later) and 2. it's just embarrassing (more so to listen too! Pass the flour..)
He tried to get her out on the bike and walks, but it doesn't really work unless it is up and down the cake isle in Asda. He even spent £2500 on an professional multi trainer thing for her which he uses all the time, but she has only touched twice.
If the two kids were not involved he would have left her because her selfish behaviour is making him unhappy and it will surely result in major health problems in the future for her.
He is embarrassed to be seen with her. I don't like to even be around her to be honest because she is foul and it is embarrassing and because I did bang her once before they met... He does not know this and I am scared that she will mention it if they split causing problems between me and him!
He really needs some help with this, I have told him to leave her often over beers but he then has guilt trips...
Right now he just seems to be counting down to when the kids are 18 so that he can get a divorce with no financial implications.
He tells me he didn't sign up to live with a slob when he got married. She always told him before they got married that she would never let herself go, but now....
Thoughts? He really is depressed.. How can I convince him to leave her?
