    I wake up every morning crying.

    I am having trouble accepting that my marriage is sexless. I don't believe in divorce or infidelity. So I know I have to find acceptance. It's just so hard. We never touch, cuddle, there's 2 feet between us every night in bed. I can not even talk about this with him unless I...

    So another day with Mr.

    no affection. Today he is chatty. Lately, I am so annoyed with him I try to not interact with him, like build a wall I guess. Wonder what he would do if Friday night I came home from work and said lets have a date night. I might, however; I suspect it would be the same old same...

    Should There Be Something Special ?

    I don't ask for too much from what can be offered. My marriage is purely a facade of few simple beautiful things. But inside, there is always the hunger for true companioship between married couples. I long for a good conversation. Something that would add up to spice an endowing...

    I love my husband, but sometimes I feel like

    the small dog who is circling around, jumping at the big dog saying "HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! LOOK AT ME! HEY!" I'm exhausted. I just want his attention. :( Why am I not good enough?

    I do love my husband.

    He is a great guy, and a wonderful father to our 2 children. He and I have a lot of fun when we're together. Yet when it comes down to the hard stuff, when someone has to step up and be an adult to handle a hard situation it always falls to me. The worst part is that he will...

    I Asked For A Hug

    This morning, the need to be held was so overwhelming, I didn't think I could bear it. I kept looking at my husband, wondering if I should ask for a hug. There is no physical contact between us for years, and it does my self esteem no good, when I have to ask my own husband to...

    Last night I approached her gently (as always),

    hoping to make love to her... She rebuffed me, insisting that she was tired and so... I can understand that of course, it wasn't the first time after all... The thing that hurts though is, throughout the entire 12 years that we are together, I have never said no to her intimate...

    Time Wasted

    I married way too young, at the age of 19. I was an insecure, scared child at the time, and all I knew was that I loved this fun-loving guy and I was comfortable and safe with him. So when he proposed, I said yes, even though I knew I wasn't ready. I didn't want to hurt him, and...

    When you want to throw yours hands up

    and say F it!! Whether due to constant bitching, knowing she is unhappy and you can do nothing to help her! Or the fact that there is lack of any kind of affection or intimacy.

    I have gotten so used to the loneliness

    and lack of sex that I wouldn't know how to respond if things changed with her or I met someone who would fill that void.

    affectionate at all. No hugs, hand holding, nothing. He does a lot of good things, but not this. I am sure there is something wrong with me. I have talked to him about this, but he does not get it. Sometimes I wonder if I should just be happy with what I have. A lot of people...

    I am a 39 year old man in pretty good shape, 6'2" and fairly good looking.  I am a very affectionate and loving person, but my wife is not.  I am always the one to initiate sex, hugs, kisses, or any type of physical contact.  I don't understand why she's so...

    So many similar stories.

    ..good spouse...no real reason to leave them. Wishing different choices had been made, but the loss of the products of the marriage would suck. So even a time machine would not help.

    He's very expressive,

    very loving, but often comes across like he has no empathy. I feel disconnected all too often. Like I'm the only one listening but not being heard at all. I've been in this relationship for 13 years now but we've only been married for a little while.. so there's a huge learning...

    when they got married they would eventually find themselves feeling like the loneliest person on earth? I have too much life left in me and too much love to give to continue down this path.

    I'm very lucky, and have a fantastic husband.

    Unfortunately, he works 14 hours a day. That leaves me lonely with a six month old, in a new place where I know no one. I've turned to various Internet forums to make friends... Silly me. I've mostly found frauds and pervs. The search continues.

    From the beginning I've told him to please promise not to claim his future, "one son" but recognize both kids as he became a stepdad as well. This was before my second pregnancy. We are now married and he claims he only has one son that he threatens to take away from me because...

    I want something totally different.

    I know many days he does as well. Yet there are these tiny strings of love that bind us. I have no sexual desire. Just these little strings of love that hold on.I feel selfish butI want to be playful again. And optimistic. And silly.

    During this time, I totally devoted my life to being a loyal wife and a good mother. Now that my baby is 17, we finally have time for us. But we have nothing in common. Being total opposites has helped us in the past. We kind of leveled each other out. Now, it's working against...
