    I got married for the first time about 3 months

    My husband is a good hard working man ,

    a good father and wonderful to his mother. But 90% of the time he forgets I exsist. I speak he speaks over me. He uses sex as his weapon. If I complain or ask for attention he will withhold sex and intimacy all together or have me only pleasure him. I'm a wife who loves her...

    The Looks I Get

    My Fading Soul

    I feel like marriage is eating away at my soul, it's just penetrating the core of my soul right now, getting ready to destroy it. This includes my security, confidence and self-esteem. How could I be so smart and then let myself get into this mess. I will not make the same...
