My husband and I joined a local lodge and we argue about he's socializing. He says he is going to talk and mingle with everyone and he is going to do his thing and I will have to mingle and do my thing. He says he is going to treat me like he treats me when we are with his family. He never talk with me at his family and I'm ignored by him. I use to think it was because their are Arab and it was easier for them to communicate in Arabic but his family always includes me or at least tries to cmmunicate with me but my husband plays cards with his brothers and ignores me. At home I do most of the talking and if not he talks some and now he doesn't want to talk with me at the lodge just with other people. He says he has never cared and will do his own thing. I'm just crying all the time over this. We have been married 22 years. We never held hands or kissed in public no affection and now he hugs the ladies and men at the lodge. We went their on New Years and he was talking at the bar with another lady when the count down began and forgot about me and he never wished me a Happy New Year. I just cry all the time. My daughter is in the Army in Iraq, my son almost lost his leg and my parents died 6 months apart. I just feel like my husband takes me for granted.
