    I to am in the same situation I have been

    married ten years now. He is the most selfish person I have ever known. He punishes people by quitting his job and laying on bed all day for days. He can't hold a job longer than a few months. Every time he says things will get better and I start to see a light at the end of...

    So Alone.

    I don't know where else to turn. I am so alone. I had an affair two weeks ago and now I feel like I am falling in love with this person, I don't know if its just because I am so alone. I haven't been touched by a man in years, yet I sleep next to one every night.

    I was always told that women appreciated

    thoughtful gestures, and that it was important for a man to show his wife sensitivity to her feelings. I sent her a couple of ecards recently, one to thank her for some things and one just because ... she didn't even open them. Okay, fine, note to self, cards aren't her 'love...

    Sexless Marriages

      If you are not in one you probably know someone who is. I am in one. Before I go on, less than 10 times per year or so is a sexless marriage. The Americans call it DINS. (Dual Income No Sex) - Don't laugh, it is real.   For years I struggled with my obsession...

    I am from Scotland. I owned two businesses

    It's sad to be with someone

    but never be happy. Always longing for what your missing. Someone to cuddle with me during a movie, hold hands as we walk, little love letter with devoted love. Someone who misses me as I miss them. Just feeling blah tonight watching a sappy movie... Remember all the things I...

    I love my husband! I love my family!

    ! I am miserable in my marriage and am uncertain, if "love" is a good enough reason to keep me here, when I am so unhappy?!! I don't want to be selfish and tear apart my family, but continuing on this same path is driving me insane! My husband is not an unfaithful or abusive man...

    How do you really know

    if you're in a "bad" marriage or not? You can't expect a long-term relationship to always be a bed of roses. My friend and I rated our marriages out of 10. She said that most of the time, hers was 8 or 9. I said that mine was only that high a few times a year and was like a...

    Unhappily married but comfortable.

    I would leave in a heartbeat if not for my 3 young girls. I have no where to go with them. Really a sucky situation.

    It is hard to leave,

    but I'm tired of feeling like I am second. I'm tired of double standards and now I find myself with trust issues. I'm, at a minimum, stuck for the next 9-12 months. At least that keeps me from making a rash decision after 20 years of marriage. Trying to be rational, logical...

    I am not in the same boat as many people here, my partner and I do still have sex. Just not that often, and never at his instigation. But wait you say, that's not fair...how can he instigate if you always jump in first. Very good question. So I have decided to stop and see what...

    Yep

    About 95% of the time Im alone. Meaning without him. Im always with my kids, but not much time with what's supposed to be the, "other half". Amputation please! I guess I should add here that we are past the fixing stage and now we both know we are best apart.
