    I just watched this clip of Ellen Page speaking

    at a conference for LGBT. What an incredible speaker. She has such passion and courage. She just announced to the world that she is gay. Maybe her words will give you the courage to face your problems, and mine too. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ellen-page-announces...

    My Wife Always Has To Be Right, And I'm Tired Of It.

    We have been married for over 20 years and have a daughter. Now I know that there's a joke that says "the man is always wrong", but not all the time! I don't mind finding a compromise on an issue, but that never seems to be an option. I recently told her that she doesn't have...

    I should be happy! I have an awesome husband

    (even though he is no where near perfect) who takes care of me very well. I'm so bored sexually I could pull my hair out. I resent him for screwing around on me so many times over the years. I have gotten to where I literally don't care to take care of my house or anything...
