I Am Married But Am Very Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 33 People

    I've been married for 5 years now.

    We separated for a whole year but of course nothing has changed. It never does. He comes home after 9 every night and when he is home, he doesn't want to spend any real time. Talking is out of the question. We just start arguing over anything. We could be talking about bath...

    Am I Hanging On to Nothing??

    The key to this whole marriage is my 8 yr old daughter, who is a daddys girl.  I am the mother and father of the relationship.  I dress her, get her to school, pick her up, play all that goes into raising a child.  She is with me 90% of the time and wants not to be...

    Alone Even When I Am In The Same Room With Him.

    I hate my husband. He annoys me. He never stops talking. He farts all the time (I'm not joking). He is disrespectful. He made me quit my job over 4 years ago to go out on the road with him and promised to take care of me. A year later he was unemployed and we were living on...

    The Silence..

    I never thought I'd be saying it; marriage was supposed to be the most amazing thing ever. I grew up in an abusive home(s), abuse in so many ways, and all I had were dreams. Dreams of what marriage would be like, I even still have what I wrote at 14 of what I wanted (hoped) my...
