    Sometimes I think I married the wrong person.

    I love her but she is very selfish at times. More often than not I feel worse after I talk to her. Shouldn't it be the other way around? She can find the bad in anything and thats all she can see. True story, my father died one year ago today. As of now ( it's 8:00 p.m. where...

    Protecting My Marriage & Reputation

    I recently write a story about women obeying men. My opinion on this is that I will not obey a man, ever. My husband and I have been married for sixteen years (fourteen dating exclusively), so a total of over 30 years. The reason are marriage works isn't just because we love...

    I've been married to my high school sweetheart

    for 14 years. We have went through some horrible times but kept it together. Things are so good now it's like I'm waiting on something bad to happen. I wish I could just sit back and enjoy my marriage.

    If you're considering getting married,

    think about this.... When the police are investigating a homicide, they ALWAYS investigate the spouse first..... .....and that pretty much tells you everything you need to know about marriage. :)

    giving dating advice to a young man that is a friend of ours. He did not know I was able to hear him. He said, "My wife finds true joy and excitement in almost every detail of life. If you find a woman that consistently has that quality, catch her, and do everything you can to...

    I married the man of my dreams two years ago.

    It was perfect, honestly. We met in college when I was eighteen and he was twenty-three. We dated for two years before he finally popped the question. During that time, we bought a house together, graduated from college, moved our childhood pets into the house, discussed baby...

    Never Thought It Would Happen...

    Really. For most of my life, I never thought I was desirable marriage material. But for some reason, a wonderful woman saw in me something that I still have yet to see in myself and agreed to be my wife. I'm only newly wed right now, and while the relationship itself hasn't...

    It is little wonder why I am disappointed with

    my marriage. When I got married, and I remember this very well, the pastor promised, and even had me repeat, that besides the woman I was marrying that day I was to get 16 more wives. He said I was to take this woman and then I would get; "4 better and 4 worse, 4 richer and 4...

    Marriage is what you make of it.

    I got married 12 years ago at the age of 19. We've had good years and bad years, but I believe the best years are always the ones where we both just let stuff go. When I quit wigging out about dirty clothes and tools left out and dishes not in the sink, amazingly he started...

    I think being married is a most difficult task.

    I am married to the same person for 27 years and know him for 29 years.He has many faults .I too have faults too.I think marriage is like walking on a high wall .If you don't balance yourself ,you will fall.If you nurture it ,you can reach great heights.

    Tomorrow (Monday) is therapy.

    I am married and I have this theory.

    My theory is that the longer two people are married, the more likely they are to have different sex drives, causing a great influx of "I live in a sexless marriage" members on EP, or "I am married but lonely and crave intimacy" members. Neither one seems to quite fit for me, so...
