"I need to know if anyone else has these feelings or not or if I just truly dislike my husband. We have been married for 12 years and I kid you not the way he chews his food gets under my skin. I can’t stand the way he chews, the way he scrolls his phone, the same shirt he wears to bed every day… like everything he does gets on my nerves lately and it isn’t even his fault… I am becoming more and more annoyed as the days pass. I love him but idk if I can get over how I am feeling. is this normal or is the the end of us?"
