Looks does look that way. There are two sides to every story. If one person is not happy, I doubt the other in the marriage is happy either.

Are you talking about me?! Who said I was not happy?! I work at a job where I am around hundreds of people everyday that need me. Talking pretty much for eight hours. I like my work a lot--I just need some quiet time. Pretty much everyone I work with says the same thing--we need time alone to reboot ourselves.

I came to the Mental Health forum. Not the relationship forum. I think it is okay and normal to feel a bit sad, depressed in these times. There are a lot of good things about my life, and yes I have gratitude for having a family. It does not mean I love them less because I need time alone.

There were others talking about their relationships. I was not posting my reply about you....just others who are always complaining about their significant other. When there are many post to a thread it gets confusing.

What do you do alone that you can't do when your husband is in his office?

That doesn't matter. It's knowing that the person can come out of their office at anytime and break the silence. In these ever more difficult and trying times more and more people need alone time to feel peace, recharge and regroup. We introverts have always needed it. I too worked in a field where I had to be talking to people all the time and also taking orders from difficult people.

When computers became a household thing I refusef to have one in my house because I had one at work. At that point I did not want one in my house. When I came home from work I wanted peace and quiet to do whatever I felt like doing. Being single, I was able to do that.

Yup. No real privacy. It's conditional privacy. You can't relax, not really.

They do make little sheds that are mini houses. I have one for an office. I don't need to go into the house at all.

I think it’s normal to enjoy having the house to yourself. I am a extrovert but still needed it when I was married. It’s a way to recharge yourself.
