“I got married for the second time last year, in the autumn of our lives. I moved into his house bringing all my stuff, furniture etc. in the belief, we would sell/ donate anything we didn’t need, from both our lives…
I think my husband is a hoarder; and I am the opposite; a declutterer. I have tried everything to get him to sell off items we don’t need, be it his or mine. He doesnt want to part with any of his stuff, and even asks me why do I want to sell my stuff for a pittance.
Now, I m living in a home that is overstuffed with furniture and other things and my head space is equally cluttered. It is not the haven I envisaged in the autumn of my life. I have broached the subject several times resulting in me walking out. We have the same argument over and over. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.” -Anonymous
