    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.
