    So my wife and I have been together

    for 30+ years. About 4 years ago she started having some pretty major health issues and I found myself caretaker in chief and she became the patient in chief. Recently she had some long over due surgery and is now on the mend. Yet I find that our relationship has changed and...

    We Fell In Love Once Upon A Time...

    We were each other's firsts; kiss, girlfriend, boyfriend, sex. Married at 18, parents at 19. ....but he's always cheated, even before I knew it. This last time I knew if I decided to stay I would lose all rights to complain. Why bother asking a liar a question? We've tried...

    I don't even know where it all went wrong.

    My husband and I had gone through everything and then some together. From finding out I was pregnant, to having to place our son up for adoption, to my battle with depression and anorexia, to leaving both of our families to run away together .. We used to be so loving and...

    Is Cheating The Answer

    I'd like to think that I am above cheating. But part of me thinks that a sex fueled affair might be the best thing for us. I fantasize about a new lover a lot. But I know in my soul I should leave first. My conscience is my compass. I'm the only one who has to look myself in the...

    What happened to the person I fell in love with?

    You were the most amazing man that I've ever known. You protected me, you looked into my eyes, you told me how beautiful I was and I knew you were being sincere. Now you barely look at me. I try so hard every day to get you to notice me, but you're too busy with work and all of...

    She's Going To Decide On Friday

    ... whether she wants to rebuild our love, or go with the new guy that she's started to develop feelings for. We aren't married, but if we had the money, we probably would've done it within the last 2 years. I look at it as a marriage though, because I've wanted to marry her for...

    Will It Ever Change?

    I've been married for 7 years to a man that I was friends with since 3rd grade.  We went to college together and friends would tell us that we were so perfect together - we should get married.  Honestly I never entertained that as an option - he was too much like my...

    I Just Need To Vent.

    I'm so unhappy. To her I'm nothing but a **** and a check. No matter what I do or accomplish I will never be able to earn her respect or admiration. She talks down to me, interrupts and talks over me as if I wasn't even speaking, tells me I'm a mess because I need medication...

    Been married for 6 years,

    just found out that he is seeing someone else. I'm not angry because I know it's been over for a while. It feels like he is doing me a favor because I'm HIV + and he is negative.
