    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...

    So, my wife is a drunk.

    She is on a week long bender. She's been to rehab, we see how effectual that was. I've fought with her, hid her keys because she will drive drunk to get more, I park in the way so she cant leave, she runs into my truck, disabke her car, she walks to the store, called the cops on...

    Everyday I am screaming on the inside,

    I can't do this anymore. I don't want to do this anymore. I'm tired of pretending. I'm tired of being invisible. I'm tired of lying to myself.

    My Wife Shows No Affection

    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...

    My husband has an appointment to go to a

    psychiatrist in May. He says he thinks that he uses video games as a way to escape thinking about things that have happened to him. He is from Colombia and has seen a lot of violence in his life, so I suppose it could be true. He says he wants to change and he knows i don't...

    Yesterday, while straightening up the house I

    I've been married 24 yrs this year.

    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...

    Who ever thought that

    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.

    My husband only spends time with friends

    and no time with my baby and me. The time he is home, he is working on the computer and does not like to be bothered at all. As soon as a friend calls to do something, he drops everything and runs to go out with them. You should see the excitement and desperation. I do not mind...

    I'm truly starting to worry about my marriage.

    I've been with him for 9 years, married for 2 1/2...and for the last 6 months to a year, he seems to always be quick to get mad, but when I try to talk to him, he gets pissed at me for thinking he's mad. He doesn't snuggle me much anymore, we barely have sex and I just feel so...

    Its one of those times in a marriage

    where one is "re-discovering" themselves after getting married and having a family at what is considered a young age now. It's abundantly hard to love some one so much you face it head on. Instead of just giving up. You do all you can to accommodate what they need, because...

    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...

    I am so tremendously lonely.

    Good family. Great kids. Good job with a significant income. Nice home. Vacations. Etc. All the 'stuff' that makes up the American Dream. But what I really want, and would give up the stuff to receive, is sincere affection and love.

    I am feeling so lonely and trapped. My wife is a nice person and everyone around us would say that, but she simply does not communicate with me. Like she doesn't talk. She leaves all decisions, major and minor to me. She never asks or cares about my work or any activities I...

    His shift brings him home late in the evenings.

    I don't know why I force myself to stay awake. Maybe hoping that he will engage me in some sort of conversation. Instead at midnight I sit up watching a show with him. What I really need is conversation and maybe for him to take a little interest in what is going on at home. In...

    Should There Be Something Special ?

    It's one of those lonely nights again.

    As I sit here having a one sided conversation with my husband, I'm getting very little response in return. Then I wonder why I constantly crave communication from someone else. Someone who is 1,000 miles away but always makes me feel special.

    My husband, soon to be ex-husband,

    is hard-working, good-looking, wonderful, caring, smart...we just don't gel, mesh, generate chemical electricity. Something's missing. Which is sad, but true. And that something somehow is everything.
