If I was faced with the situation you describe, I'd be more than happy to jettison the sourpuss and live by myself in the MH. If you don't, your remaining years will likely be filled with resentment. Is that how you want to sign-off? Screw that.

Amen! Life's too short to live with someone who wants to take away something that makes your life happy.

I did notice that you said "My third wife ain't happy with this MH". If that is the problem, get another Motorhome.

As we age, there are reasons for having a spouse other than love and affection. In many states if one is over 65 and enters the health care system, one needs to exit the system with the ability to take care of ones self. This is not decided by the person. It is decided by health care professionals and an agency called Elder Care Advocate (or something like that). The agency is part of the state government bureaucracy. Every state has their "tests" to determine if a person can take care of themselves. Fail the test and one is shipped off to rehabilitation (whatever Medicare will pay for). After rehabilitation, fail the test again and one is shipped off to a skilled nursing facility (formerly called a nursing home and must be Medicare eligible). There is where one will spend the rest of ones life.

If a person has a spouse to take care of them, the preceding is not put into action. In some states a care giver can take the place of the spouse. I've been through this with both our mothers and fathers. Different states were involved, but the process seemed eerily similar.

The bottom line is it is good to be married until "death do us part".

DW is part of my life, not my whole life so I'm in agreement with the above. Hope and Pray that you find a viable solution.

Good thoughts your way, and congrats on the long run that you've had so far!

If your health is not a factor, and finances support, some good input on parking the coach on a lot. The SKP's have several parks that you can also be members in, and that provides a nice support group and friends and activities too.

Or selling the rig and getting a smaller 'get out and go for short one's' rig is another option too.

Happy wife, happy life - must have been said a few thousand time on this board. But also working with your spouse in win/win compromises is important too... Both should respect and be willing to adjust and work with each others like's and dislike's... perhaps some more dialog is in order?

Either way it goes, thanks for sharing your knowledge here, and please keep doing so!

Respectfully,
Smitty

Never get between your spouse and their passion. Recipe for disaster.

Wow you guys are tough, I love my MH and going out camping ect, but I love my wife a whole lot more. I would think at 84 having a companion would be more important than living a lonely life in a MH. Hopefully he can do both, but surely this is nothing worth as you put it to "jettison the sourpuss" over. Maybe in all other areas she is a great wife, but may be getting too old to enjoy the RV'ing. To the OP good luck and if nothing else you had a great ride and have fond memories to look back on.

I wouldn't change something I enjoy so much just to make my DW happy.....Little things ok but a big thing like RVing......nope. She knew what you liked when you married.

I'm curious as to what your wife dislikes about RVing. Perhaps some sort of compromise can be worked out. A new coach, a different bed/mattress, different kind of campground/resort/rv park? New destinations?

My wife says if I <insert favorite hobby here> one more time, she's leaving.
Damn, I'm gonna miss that woman.
