`Malcolm Applegate, 62, went to extreme measures to get out of what he describes as a “controlling” relationship.
Applegate left his wife for the woods one day without telling anyone and lived there for five years, staying hidden for a total of 10.
“I camped in thick woodland near Kingston, and made that home for five years while maintaining the gardens at a local community center for the elderly,” says Applegate.`

`Gardening is what started the problems in his marriage. He says his wife didn’t want him working so many hours and would get upset over any time he spent outside of the house.
“The controlling behavior started to get out of hand and she demanded that I cut my hours. After a long time trying to stay in the marriage, I decided to leave for good,” says Applegate.`


“My day-to-day involves working in the shop or driving the vans; I’m not fussy what jobs are given to me as long as I’m working,” says Applegate.
Family and friends had no idea what had happened to him until he finally broke his silence to his sister. “It had been a decade since I’d last seen her, and in that time she had been to all of the Salvation Army hostels in the South trying to find me,” he explains. “I think she assumed I was dead".

Well, IMO, that dude is an IDIOT. I'd have just divorced the woman.

Understand......when dealing with "normal" people...`maybe`... he was just scared of her...he sounds very passive...easy going and wanted a simple life without arguing and fighting....and didnt want to go through anymore hassle and the drain and stress of a divorcee..thats the way I took him....

He has to be absolutely gutless, and not only that, to leave his family just hanging never knowing what happened to him, thinking he's probably dead, for TEN YEARS, what a SHITTY thing to do.

He sounds like a complete jack off to me.
