    Lonely

    I've been married for about 3 years now, and I've been with my husband for 6 years exactly this past month. We have two beautiful daughters, ages 1 and 2, and they're amazing. I'm in school part-time, but most of the time, I'm a stay-at-home mom. I love to shop, sing, cook, and...

    I ended up in this place

    because I can't say anything. Not to my family and not to my friends.Not to the therapist even. The stakes are high. This marriage is too advanced. My family life is too good in a way to start unravelling it. So I am here.

    Fishing Widow

    Here I am again- sitting on my front porch wondering how late my husband will be this time. He came home, hitched up his boat and was gone in less than five minutes. I am glad I bought that bottle of wine the other day...........

    My husband and I aren't what we used to be.

    He doesn't give a crap about my feelings or my needs. sometimes I think he is with me because he loves my family so much and he doesn't have a family. The only thing that gets him to respond to me is when I act distant. Like the type of wife he wants is the type who doesn't talk...

    I've been married 30 years,

    we sleep in separate rooms, never have sex for a few years. Not even intimacy. We only talk briefly about family or household stuff. I work with hardly any interactions with others, and since we moved here I have no friends. I need female friendship and communication.

    Pondering
