    I've been here for over a year. I don't want to live a lie or act like I'm not married here anymore. Yes it's a struggle. Yes I need friends. But I want to be open and honest about the truth of who I am. I do love my wife. I do want to be a good husband. I have an ache in my...

    Yes, I am very happily married.

    I have been married to one man for 23 years. From our union, we have produced seven children. Some of our children have moved out while some are still at home. A few of our kids are in college and single and others are college educated and married with their own children.

    I sent an message to

    that lady I like, I slightly overstepped the mark. She didn't reply till the end of the day and kept me worrying. Even my wife was getting pissed off with her for not returning a message. You know you got a GREAT wife when she supports like this!

    13 years and we are still very passionate for each other! And we have had some pretty tough times to over come. I think many marriages fail from lack of communication and boring sex. We communicate and I don't refuse my husband's advances ... He wants me... And I him. We have...

    I think my biggest hard lesson in marriage was

    that it's a form of lifelong servitude(from a man's point of view anyway). I don't mean that in a bad way but besides typical household responsibilities I have to be vigilant and cherish my wife always. Maintaining that emotional connection and making her special is probably...

    But marriage is work.

    Love is an action verb. You get out what you put in. If we stopped dating each other, if we allowed each other to drift apart without noticing because we were preoccupied and, in our minds, "secure" in the fairytale idea that love just exists and lasts forever like some...

    I love my husband so much.

    I love that he can sense my needs without me even saying a word. That he can look at me and make my heart flutter, even after 17 years. Love and instinct, a bond stronger than words. He is my soul mate, my lover, and my best friend. I thank God every day for him.

    and I don't know how to tell my husband that I'm done 😔 I know all marriages are different, but at 5yrs things are still the same. I'm supposed to be happy, in love, a little more settled, but this is all a nightmare.
