    It's happening.. The thing

    that hurts me the most is how I'm starting to pull away from his affection. I'm not consciously trying to. When he tries to give me a hug or a kiss, I almost cringe and can't wait for it to be over. I hate this because I know he can tell. I'm a very sympathetic person. I don't...

    there i said it... this marriage feels more

    like a burden with every passing day. the urge to get out keeps getting stronger. i don't want this anymore ! he's far too nice and i am not able to appreciate that. the more it feels like a burden, the more it brings out the worst in me. he doesn't deserve it.

    I never imagined that this will happen.

    I have always thought that I will fulfill my marriage vows until the end. I realized that people, things, situations and feelings change. I have always been cognizant of the fact that love is a choice. I have made my choice.
