On Edge of Divorce

From Kansas City:

DEAR ABBY: My husband retired, and we thought we were fulfilling our lifetime dream when we moved to the beach, but our dream has turned into a nightmare. Our family never wanted to visit us this often before.

When they come, no one even brings along so much as a bottle of water. My grocery bill has skyrocketed, and I’m sick of playing the role of cook and maid while they have a wonderful time.

I’m ready to move back to our hometown. At least there I had a life besides cooking and cleaning. My husband wants to live here because it’s his dream, but I can’t take another year of this. The workload is killing me.

I have been a fool for putting up with everyone having a carefree vacation at my expense. I’m so angry, I’m ready to leave my husband with his dream. The last three years have been hell. When friends and family ask why I left, should I tell them or keep my mouth shut and build a peaceful life by myself?
