I am still here.

It has been to long since my last post. I am always going to write tomorrow. I guess it's finally tomorrow tonight. Nothing has changed much in my life, I am still married with kids. The kids are slowly leaving the nest and our youngest with be here for a while. My wife still loves me very much and tries to understand why I do the things I do.
Since my last post I went on a Bromance trip to Europe for 2 weeks. The wife left to see her sister to avoid seeing me off to the airport. Needless to say, she was upset but I went anyway. It didn't help that I had a crush on the guy either. I guess it was just something I had to do. I wanted to get away from everything and chill a bit. The trip was mostly sight seeing. I was in the car traveling at least 8 to 10 hours a day. I saw and learned a lot.

Wait a minute... you went away to Europe for two weeks not only without your wife, but with a guy you have a crush on and call your relationship a "bromance"? Are you kidding me? And she still loves you and is trying to understand you? And you actually went and survived to tell about it?

Your wife is more than understanding... she's a saint!

I've got to know more about this story and how you accomplished what would be a dream come true in my wildest imaginations! You can't just leave this with "I saw and learned a lot"... doesn't cut it, my friend!

Welcome back to blogging, Bror. I agree with Beck that your wife is amazing and agree that you should tell more of the tale for your anxious readers.

So you still live with your wife?

She didn't want to see you off at the airport? Did she know you where travelling with another guy and maybe it was more than a trip with a friend?

I also agree with Beck, your wife is very understanding, almost to the point where it seems she is been taken for a mug.

I assume you guys are staying and living together for the sake of the children.

How would you feel if she met someone else?

Sorry for all the questions, super curious is all!

You did what?!?!?!

J/K I think it is amazing you got to travel and get away from everything with a good friend. Let's face it we all wish we could do the same sometimes.

Yes, what can I say, my wife is a saint. I really don't know why she doesn't leave me. She says she loves me to much. She didn't want me to go, but I went anyway. It was something I had to do.
I wanted to go on a trip where I didn't have to worry about anyone. I wanted to go faraway too. Somewhere out of my comfort zone and where I was the stranger.
Yes, I was with a guy who has no idea I had a crush on him. As far as he knew we both used each other to share the expenses of a trip to Europe of which we couldn't have done on our own. So in a sense it was a Bromance. That is all I let it be.
The best thing about trip was I saw so much in 12 days. He knew where to go and he was so passionate about the places we visited. It was good to see him so happy. I was just happy to be away somewhere new.
Yes, I feel we are together for the kids. Who isn't? I do worry about my kids and their welfare. But I feel there is more to our marriage or one of us would have left by now.
I am not sure how I would feel if she met someone who could give her the passion she deserves. This is something we talk about all the time. She tells me all the time she doesn't want to be getting a divorce when she is past her prime.
