    Just A Little Experiment...

    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...

    My wife never calls or texts me anymore.

    I try to wait for her to even text or call but the truth is that she won't, and when I do call her she acts like all am doing is bugging her. And she says she needs her space.. Am not proud of my past I have not always been here because my job consumed my life (chef life) but...

    My husband is very jealous of the relationship

    I have with my family especially my mother and brother. I am close with both of them. Yesterday he told me that he doesn't want my brother around the house to visit( he comes once a week to visit my son) because he doesn't want to have another man bonding with his son. He also...

    Being Alone In Your Marriage Feels Like Being A Houseplant

    That's exactly how I feel. Because you don't bother to ask a houseplant how it feels, if it needs anything, if it wants to talk, if anything's wrong. You just make sure you give it the bare minimum of what it needs to survive, and if it dies, oh well, you weren't that attached...

    How Sad Is That

    Someone asked me the other day if I was married and I actually had to stop and think before I answered. I have been feeling so alone that I actually forgot for a second that I am married. I guess I feel more like a single person. Now that's just really sad.

    So why is it hard to leave

    but want to find someone to take that empty space. I want to find someone to care about me. I don't want to leave where I'm at because of my children.

    Married 28 years and just realizing all my

    storms I've weathered alone. He loves sex, but not affection, never there to hold me when I'm sad. He grew up with an alcoholic father who abused his mom and that has always been the excuse for his lack of affection. I feel sad and depressed and will end by walking out or...

    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...

    Well I guess I can leave this group soon

    as I will no longer be married. The hurt is still unbelievable. She now said, "I can no longer love you like a wife should love her husband". It is a refreshing burst of truth from a compulsive liar.

    My Wife Runs Hot And Cold

    We will go thre weeks without sex and then for the next week she is all over me. It seems right before her period she gets very horny. Women, is this normal? I admittedly haven't a clue when it comes to those things. You'd think I'd have learned by now. The sex is getting...

    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.

    I Wonder If There Really Is Such A Thing As A "Soulmate"?

    The reason I am alone is we are seperated.

    I think we really need to change marriage laws. First divorce is way too easy. The no fault divorce is an easy way out. People need to work on relationships and not give up on each other when trouble arises. Remember most of us vow for better or worse, rich or poor. Don't...

    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.
