I'm defeated, moving back to town.

I posted here about two years ago, explaining that I had bought some land in the country and was in process of building a house. My wife was throwing a fit about living in the country, (14 miles from a town of 25000). (wish she would have let me know this when we were getting married)

Well, most of you said she would come around and everything would be ok. Well she did'nt come around. This fall I'm going to put it up for sale. She just hates it and will never like it, even if she did like it I don't think she would admit it. I guess I finally had enough of her smart comments, and critisim.

So I guess the real reason I'm posting this is because I'm pissed, and I want some country people to tell me how dumb she is.

We have a new house, 14 miles from town, she has a good 4x4 car, and all the extras that make her life easier, and she still hates it. We have two children and that is why I'm giving up. If we get divorced they would end up living in town anyway, and I would'nt get to see them everyday.

So I'm throwing in the towel. After we get the place sold and a place in town I'm going to start looking for some more land to buy. I'll put a little shop out there and maybe I can have a few head of cattle again, but it won't be the same as living in the country.

Thanks for letting me get this off my chest.
