I fear that I might be alone on this one. I’m losing the one I love, and my hands are tied. Our love seems to be drifting further and further away as each day passes. She says she loves me, but her actions speak otherwise. She can’t get a job, not because places aren’t hiring, but for the simple reason that she has stopped looking. I cannot support both of us, and due to the economy, most couples have to work together in this area if they are to survive, let alone thrive. She is not independent, nor does she make any effort to become so; I mean what happens when I’m gone? Will she simply cling to another, sucking them dry as she normally does (and not in a good way), or will she simply become a leech on the side of America’s ever weakening side as do many who are able to suck it up, and just work for what they get? I am perplexed on what it is that I should do, for I still love her, but I cannot afford to. At this rate, we won’t marry, we can’t move in together, and there is nothing else we can do. My hand is forced, but is there another way? This is one problem a bullet in my brain will not solve.
