I'm sheep 1979 and my ex husband snake 1965 and we divorce 2 years ago after spending 18 years together. We stay on good terms but our marriage was under pressure constantly

OMG we are same. Me. April 1979 and my ex husband snake 1965 Gemini. Were separated already 12yrs ago but until now we still fighting for are children's right 💔😢
Answered by Diana | Feb. 05, 2022 14:52

I’m earth sheep and my husband fire snake, all I can say it’s tough love, we separates for yrs, he left and I gave him his space, both making bad choices apart, I was upset but he helped financially after I but the foot down, but he didn’t fight me on that, it came a time before we got back together I realize the only men I can forgive would be him, we all go thru faces, nobody is perfect, we have kids too, I know how much he loves them and us, that’s everything for me, we are now together finally matured and understood it’s not about us it’s about them and we agree on that family commitment. We both have been financially stable thru our hard careers but I’m the one that needs to control the finances for some peace of mind. At the end of the day how ever he upset me I sleep it off and start a new day, leaving the pass where it belongs, and I find myself time to take care of myself some times still working on it. Choosing to marry and/or choosing to have a family is a responsibility that one has to own it, I wish anyone struggling to have a little faith and look towards the future and fight with a straight mind and plenty of patience for your family!

Man who is born on the year of Snake is likely to control the way he want. It could be a little difficult for the spouse. He will bow for the stronger...and tough for the weak..
Answered by Debra An | Apr. 22, 2022 23:39

Seek marriage counseling.
Answered by Desiree | Jan. 04, 2023 20:11

I'm also earth sheep with husband fire snake.
Our circumstance is rather different from yours--we had a huge fight 2 years ago which led to us honestly discussing needs & wants. That prevented separation and brought us closer together. This year we'll be celebrating 20 years together, 17 yrs marriage.
Communication is really key. Also really listen to each other as both can be very stubborn and have huge ego.
Answered by Mariah | Mar. 23, 2023 07:31

I agreed with you. I’m 1979, my husband is 1977 snake. He is tough when I am weak, he is abusive, but when I showed strengths and talk back, he is quiet. Tough life with him
Answered by Sandra | Mar. 23, 2023 07:46

My husband and I same years as both of you, I am 1979, sheep and he is 1977, snake. We fight every day. We never got along with many things. Both of us want to stay in the marriage but our personalities led us to sadness and depression. I hate going through divorce, but there is no other way to keep the relationship works.

Happiness in your future…after divorce finalizes.
Answered by CNB22 | Feb. 20, 2024 08:14

Hi, I don’t usually respond to strangers online. Your comment made me sad. If abuse is the description of your partner/ relationship. U could and probably should leave. Speak to a lawyer first. Sometimes people make u think they have more control than they do. Depending on your state. Half of everything should be yours maybe more. Enough to start over and find someone to treat u beyond amazing. Because that’s what all people deserve.

I share the same 1979, female sheep, 1980, Male monkey. When I check compatibility it is only 20%. At one time we got along well but I do think him selfish and I and family responsibilities have been neglected. I am not confident in our relationship. Any advice would help.

You should have more confidence about the relationship. When meeting difficulties, you two should solve them together. In addition, in daily life, both of you need to show more understanding and patience to each other.
