    I met my husband almost 4 years ago, we got married 1 year ago. I felt a little distance between us and I asked his why he is not interested to be intimate. He told me I was not the same girl he met, and he was not as attracted to me as he used to be. It hurt so much to come...

    When ever we are in public my husband leaves me

    and ignore me. He always chooses his friends above me. I don't feel like he truly loves me for so many other reasons although he wants to love me. I am not his special someone it's been 7 years and I just feel worthless in my marriage.

    In august of 2013 my husband cheated on me

    We're in a long distance relationship

    and it sucks. The time difference and our schedules make it tough to really talk and connect. I feels so alone cos he barely bothers to ask me how I am or doesn't care when I tell him how I feel.

    Hurt And Angry

    I'm four years older than my husband, but when we first met I couldn't see the difference. Though our lives took two different paths, it seemed as if we were destined to be together. Even though I'm a college graduate and he's a high school drop out we had a lot in common. We...

    My husband can't be bothered with me.

    Since we got married almost 6 years ago we've had 3 children. So I've changed physically. Obviously children change a relationship too. I became a vegan 1 1/2 years ago which is 'annoying' (read: this makes me different, and different is bad). My feminism, once barely present...
