    All of those that have followed my story.

    Guess what? I got so low yesterday that I had to get my sons somewhere safe. Call a friend and go to the er. I wasn't suicidal but I was close enough. So today I followed up with a doc and got an antidepressant and some Ativan. Never have I had to take such meds. But then again...

    And I love it. I love the arguments,

    because love follows, I love the funny moments of early morning clumsiness, because love follows, I love the hours of silent treatment, then with a smile or a funny joke, love follows. I love laying next to her at night, knowing I am good husband, because she grabs and pulls me...

    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.

    To the love if my life,

    I never express my feelings to you because I am not that kind of person. What better way to tell everyone how I feel. I hope that my jealousy and hard *** attitude you can put up with, that you will never leave me. I love the way you can be clumsy and dense but still...

    My husband and I want to start a marriage

    and family revolution. Old fashioned values and respect for one another. When women acted and dressed like ladies and men weren't afraid to put their foot down for the benefit of their family. My husband took me out to dinner and a movie on Valentine's Day. I bought a new dress...

    I've been married 15 years to my high school

    sweetheart. It has not always been easy and we've had our -more than- fair share of ups and downs- but neither of us has ever given up. We've stuck through everything life and each other has thrown our way and I am happy to say that at this point in our lives we are happier...

    I am happily married.

    I just really enjoy talking to people online because my anxiety prevents me from talking to new people in person. I feel more comfortable talking and being honest when it's not face to face.

    But unhappy. I told my husband today

    that I want to move out when the kids are grown. I want to live in my own place on my own. He said we can make it happen sooner if I want. Confirmation that this marriage is over.

    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...

    My husband is the most amazing man.

    I love him so much and am so proud of him for the man he's become. We've grown up together. I've been with him half of my life. I wouldn't trade a second.

    I'm married, 2 and a half years now.

    It's 4 am and my husband is out ... I don't know where. I'm not happy, I feel he doesn't love me anymore. Something is off.

    My wife and I have been married

    for 32 years and our relationship may be the best it's ever been. I had a friend say, not long ago, that I talk about my wife like we are newly weds (I guess I do). The thing I want people to understand is that while we enjoy a great marriage now, that has not always been the...

    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.

    It's hard when you're married,

    but really like and care about someone who lives hundreds of miles away and is also married. Just sayin'. Some days... It's really hard.

    I rarely get to see my husband

    because of his work schedule. He works extremely hard so that I can be a stay at home mom for my boys. Most of the time I feel like a single parent. He is either sleeping, watching t.v. waiting to go to sleep or playing piano. I hate the loneliness, the disconnect. He comes off...

    What a night, my wife in her apparent

    bi-polarness. Came home from work tonight around 1130. She was calm and rather nice the first ten minutes. I had dozed off but woke up when she came in the bedroom. We chatted about her night etc. Then she started with the sharp edge to her voice just dicatating to me how...

    RANDOM: I just walked into the kitchen wearing

    just a tee (as usual) and my husband said, "Wow, you always look so hot." It was nice (after almost 10 years of marriage) because he barely talks, he isn't emotional, he never says sorry, and even though it really doesn't change a thing - it was nice to hear. :D

    I have an incredible sex life with my wife of

    20 years. Here's the wrinkle: when we have sex, I fantasize about my sexy mother who died 25 years ago. Is this a normal phenomenon?

    Yep. He doesn't flirt.

    He doesn't put himself in dangerous situations. He keeps his eyes only for his wife. And vice versa.

    Is it a bad sign that.

    ..My husband has been out of town for over a week and I am loving every minute alone with my 3 year old son and wish my husband could stay out of town longer? It's soooooo much less stressful with him gone.
