    Question: my husband likes other women's photos

    on social media. Some of the images are provocative. He follows IG pages of half naked women. I can't stand it. Am I overreacting or are his actions harmless?

    Moving on is so hard to do.

    Different Is Scary Sometimes

    I know what a healthy relationship is, but apparently I am confused by it. I'm used to the sort of man that has to be all affectionate in public in order to tell everyone that I am his and in turn gets upset when attention of any kind is payed to another man. Of course this is a...

    I don't think my husband loves me anymore.

    Obviously like every story there's a lot of baggage. Ours probably heavier than other people. There's been a shadow cast over our marriage the past year. And it's been full of drama and turmoil. My problem is in a two fold: 1- I don't trust him. He has a history of lying. I...
