Dear Abby Jeanne Phillips Published 3:18 AM EDT Jun 11, 2019 Dear Abby: Just months before our 30th wedding anniversary, my husband told me he doesn’t love me and never wanted to marry me. I am beyond devastated. I feel I have wasted the best years of my life. We have two beautiful daughters who are my everything. When he revealed this news to me, it turned my life upside down.
