When settling in marriage leads to contempt
Sometimes giving ultimatums aint the best thing to do.
This 42-year-old man was given an ultimatum to marry her wife (then girlfriend) or she would leave. He figured, why not. I mean he had never been married before so this seemed the best thing to do after weighing his options:His career was in tatters – it has been for several years - and the woman didn’t seem to care. So for fear of probably never finding his ideal woman (and breaking the world record of the oldest bachelor alive) he settled for her. In his worlds, “I settled for hamburger thinking I might never get steak᾿.
Much as his wife has all good qualities - great cook, looks OK, stays in shape and would never cheat on him, a dude just feels a lack of excitement around her ... the sex too! And now she wants a baby. She is 39 … Tick! Tock! Tock! Dude isn’t feeling this baby vibe and is scared of having sex with her.

What are you looking for?
Much as they don’t live together after a year of marriage (she lives in Canada, he lives in the U.S.), he feels he might be harboring a slight resentment that she forced him into marriage, is forcing him to start a family and she is keeping him from EVER finding his ideal woman. TRAPPED is the word I have been looking for.
What advice so you have for him?
