    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...
