Didn't you think that her having the first heart attack-- because of your demand for sex or wanting to cheat on her-- was enough for you to stop pressuring her? But five?Life is a gamble.
By the time I was 20, I had dated a lot and I had grown tired of all the different women. I began forming my longterm goals, and I would share my vision of my future with each girl I dated [after I had gotten some of course]. The idea of homesteading in the woods, gardening and raising livestock, was not a popular idea among ladies, in 1980.
Then one girl, when she heard my vision, said that she could see herself dedicating her life to achieving that goal. For the past 37 years, she has remained focused on us getting there.
The downside, she is very independent minded. She prefers for me to be away, living and working somewhere else.
When we were both 25 she suffered a spinal injury, that messed up some nerves, and basically ended our sex life. I am not well suited for celibacy. But she did nothing wrong, so I have no valid reason to divorce her. We have discussed divorce many times, it leads to her stressing which builds up to heart attacks. She has had five heart attacks, all from stress, mostly from dealing with me being upset over celibacy.
She is really good with Home Economics, she can feed a family from food that she forages. I can see where I would have never been able to save money and to build Net Worth like this without her.
The journey of life is a big gamble.
I think that I did really good in selecting her as my wife. But you never know what awaits around the next corner.
