    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...
