I Am Married But Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,550 People

    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...

    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...

    I wish I could be held.

    I wish I could cuddle. I wish I had someone to tell me it's all going to be alright.

    He's such an ******* sometimes.

    He got really sick last night so he went to bed and I stayed up late to set out all the Santa gifts and fill the kids stockings. I slept on the couch so he could have the bed and be comfortable, plus I don't want what he's got. Got woken up at 6:30 by excited kids and have been...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It is tedious with my spouse she doesn't want

    to find a job she wants my attention all the time and never wants me to do anything on my own but wants me to watch her so everything she finds fun. Sex is a chore now I have to guilt her into it now.

    We all have different reasons

    for being in this situation...but it's hard regardless of why. I long for affection and a wife who wants all a marriage should include. I have a lot to offer...I'm honest, well-educated with a great job, I love my kids, and I just want to feel loved. I could write a book.

    He lives at the gym. Sorry, but I think there is more to life. I don't want to divorce but it's getting really ridiculous. He is hard on me about my body and I'm not fat at all. I just don't want to look shredded. I don't think physical appearance should matter that much. Our...
