Should you divorce the workaholic?

It depends. Some guys pretend to be workaholics. They always have a client they need to meet after work. Next thing you know, your best friend seesĀ him kissing the hand of a young, nubile little blond who is half your age at a cozy out-of-way-restaurant and he lives and dies and tells you your girlfriend must have mistaken him for somebody else.
Should you divorce a guy like this? Only you can answer that question, my sister.
But what about a true workaholic who is basically married to his job? I mean, he’s always at the office from the crack of dawn and he brings work home too so when he gets home at 9:00 p.m., it’s a lucky night if he talks to you for 15 minutes before he’s in his home office/den/study/the basement working more. What do you do with a guy like this?
Hah! I don’t know. I mean, that is not a healthy relationship/marriage if all your spouse does is work. Where is the couple time? But this behavior may be symptomatic of a deeper problem in your marriage. He may be trying to escape you and his commitment for some reason. He prefers to work than talk to you and he barely even wants to do the hanky panky as well? So why are you there? I mean, he works all day and all night. He doesn’t want to do the hanky panky. He talks to you for 15 minutes out of the day. I mean, this is not rocket science. This is not a marriage. You are room-mates, perhaps, but not “married.” And you may very well do yourself a favor by divorcing this person and finding yourself a spouse and partner.
But context matters. I should not speak so globally. It really depends on what is really going on behind the scenes. I mean, is there a problem with his prostate? Did you just have a baby? Is he afraid he’ll lose his job in this economy? Different factors could change my analysis.
But if everything else is pretty much fine and he’s just a workaholic for the sake of being a workaholic and you are not getting any attention from this person (this is true if the wife is the workaholic too, btw), then maybe a divorce would not be a total over-reaction.
As usual, though, I don’t want to be the heavy. So I am not telling you yes or no. You decide.
