    I love my Husband - More

    than I can put into words. But, I'm rapidly approaching the limit of BS I can take from him. Trying to talk to him is like a nightmare. Nothing goes right and I just walk away crying and feeling like the biggest waste of space. Granted, holding my feeling back hurts like Hell...

    Today I put my foot down

    and let him know my demands . He didn't like it and we got into an argument . He ended up punching me on the side of my jaw where I started to bleed from my mouth . I called the cops on him and they arrested him

    Should "maintaining attractiveness" be part of

    a marriage contract? After 7 years of marriage hubby has gained 25 pounds of fat and looks very different. After 2 kids I weigh the same because I run/strength train 5 times a week. We used to run together he now says he never liked working out actually and basically just gave...

    As I read some of the messages it seems like

    many married people are more like friends with their spouse rather than intimate partners. My wife and I have sex pretty infrequently now a days and I'm tired of this. It's actually been like this for several years now. I always loved sex and being with women. I don't expect it...

    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 am married and I feel like my wife has lost

    her passion for life and adventurous side and I hate that I'm starting to feel the need to look for someone to fill the void I've lived with my wife for 5yrs now and have been married for 1yr. I do love my wife very much but she is not as active as I wish she was. I enjoy...

    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.

    My life has been a lie.

    I don't know who to trust anymore or what to believe. I was just told that everyone outside but close is saying that he doesn't love me. This justifies what I'm feeling. He doesn't love me and I see it. I've been crying myself to sleep almost every night. He came up from the...

    Is it enough to love,

    and consider your spouse a friend? To not have the heat and passion? Should you stay because you could make it work, and "to not be a statistic". To grow old in the comfort of an attachment that does not satisfy the soul or stir your body. I don't know. It's no ones fault - and...

    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 need someone to share things with.

    My husband has neither the time nor the energy - or inclination - to engage with me about the photos I take, songs I listen to, articles I read. I have an active inner life but need a partner, a sounding board, someone with whom I could have that intellectual back-and-forth that...

    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.
