    Married people, when people say communcation is

    key what does that exactly mean? When is talking to much? Lots of people say men hate nagging. But what if the wife is just trying to "communcate"? What do husbands like to hear from their wives? Do we tell our husbands everything? Do we tell eachother what is bothering us...

    I overheard my husband yesterday,

    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...

    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...

    Well here I sit have about 30 minutes till I

    get out of work. In about a hour I will be climbing into bed with her. Things seems somewhat normal today. I have a funny feeling that she's questioning herself and her actions. I don't think she expected me to take her wishes so seriously and actually give her space. Last night...

    So today seems like a better day.

    First I found ten bucks on the ground. But this morning was a normal morning. When I left she turned to kiss me but I kissed her on the forehead and walked away. It's still hard but better.

    "Marriage doesn't take away our loneliness. To be alive is to be lonely. It's the human condition. Marriage doesn't change the human condition. It can't make us completely unlonely. And when it doesn't, we blame our partner for doing something wrong, or we go searching for...

    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.

    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. :)

    I'm having this feeling like I hate my husband.

    Bcos I feel like our kids are not his priority. He doesnt even play with them or tell them stories. He doesnt feed them or bathe them. Instead, he's always busy with his motorbike or his mobile, facebooking & all that. Such a very immature thing for a husband & a father!
