Hi - I am a 44 year old woman - I have been married with two kids for 20 years... we met in college - and - married right after and have been happily married ever since. Our kids are getting ready to go to university (one this fall - the next one fall of 2012). I was a teacher - but quit my job so I could enjoy the last little bit of time with my kids before they are gone.
Since quitting my job - I have become consumed with thoughts that something is going to happen to my relationship with my husband. I find myself not trusting him... checking his emails... doubting his words... He doesn't give me any reason to feel this way. He comes home every night at the same time... regularly tells me that he loves me - calls when he has a break at work... doesn't do any of those 'I think your man is cheating' things... THEN WHY AM I FEELING THIS WAY?
I have discussed this with him... he says 'I have never cheated on - I never will cheat on - I love you - and am very happy that I married you and want to grow old with you"... You can't get any better than that... so what is wrong with me? am I going crazy? oh and by the way - I have never been a jealous person - nor have I ever 'doubted' my husband's love and commitment to me until now...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
