The most important thing I learned from a failed marriage

I got married when I was very young. We met when I was 22. We both had a lot of growing up to do, and I didn’t have any role models growing up to give me good relationship advice. I am now 43. My Christmas present last year was my wife telling me she wanted a divorce. And my New Years’ resolution was to stop it from happening. But it was too late, and like most New Year’s resolutions, it failed in February. 😞 The lesson? As a man, EVERY morning of EVERY day, you should wake up thinking of a way to express love to your partner. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just a cute little “have a great day, thinking of you” kind of text message or a sweet note, just something that proves that you love her as much as you say. Flowers aren’t expensive. Get her a gift once and a while just because. Here’s the thing: if you don’t prove that you love her, she’s not going to assume it. The opposite is true. She will assume that you don’t. Saying it when you hang up the phone won’t do. You can’t overcome it with sex, either. Women need constant assurance or they feel unloved. I had no affairs. I did not abuse my wife. I took her love for granted and it’s the biggest mistake I ever made. And it’s the kind of mistake that, once realized, it’s too late because it’s been going on for too long. My mission in the next love life is to make my partner feel loved, just the way I should have made my wife feel.

Good advice there. Divorced two years now myself. Love definitely needs to be shown constantly and consistently

For me that didn't make a difference. Sometimes it's just time for that connection to come apart.

Sometimes even if two people love each other so hard, things would still fall apart due to small miscommunication and such. Do not blame yourself. It would be a long crawl but you can do it.

Very similar timeline and story for me as well. Emotional connections are so important and keeping them are a key.
