Ask Amy: Woman is hurt, lonely, and far from home
Dear Amy: I am 50, and my husband of 28 years is 62.
We recently moved to a new country for his job. Our kids are attending university in another country. This has been a huge change for me as I have no kids at home to look after. For legal reasons I can't work here, but I do volunteer at the local homeless shelter.
My husband recently started reaching out to all of his ex-girlfriends, and when I asked why he said he can't explain it.
I am hurt, menopausal, lonely, and sad. I honestly don't know what to do.
Should I return to my home country and start my life over?
I can't speak to him or look him in the eyes because it hurts me so much.
To add to the misery, we are having his sisters visit soon for a two-week stay.
I feel like my spirit is crushed.

Dear Crushed: Your husband can explain his actions – he just doesn’t want to. And now you two are engaged in a silent and lonely battle.
