    Today is my 40th birthday

    and my ******* husband has thrown at least 3 tantrums on the trip to Florida I planned to celebrate. Now we are not speaking and he sent me a text saying happy birthday from the other room. Be careful who you marry. My husband has managed to ruin several celebratory moments in...

    Almost everytime I read a "I'm married"

    experience, it's a negative one ! People, why do you get married ? I would say that it is to spend your life next to the person of your choice ? No ? I am married for 23 years and am now more convinced about my wife than ever. Coming home, after a 13 hour workday, makes me happy...

    I was always taught never to go to bed on a

    cross word. I haven't been married that long but I always tell my husband I love him and thank him for today before I go to sleep. Sometimes I haven't wanted to, sometimes he hasn't replied, sometimes I haven't even felt like I liked him, sometimes I have been hurting beyond...

    I was just finishing up weeding the flower beds

    when my neighbor stopped by. Both of us are retired and both of our wives still work. We talked for a few minutes and I told him I still had some coffee left if he wanted some. We came into the house and he told me his wife had not spoken to him in 4 days. He was telling me his...

    When I quit my career

    and became a full time wife (and then a mother a few years down the road), taking care of my husband an my home became my job. If my husband goes to work every day, 60-70 hours a week to provide for us, should i complain about doing it all at home? It is my job to cook, keep a...

    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.

    *this post relates to my last post on this same

    experience* Well I was holding off talking to my husband about moving for a little bit, but I can't do that now. First thing he did when he came home tonight was mention a apartment that he wants to check out, and we are apparently going Wednesday night to do it. He is in over...

    I used to have another profile on here

    but I deleted it because I felt like I needed to at that time. This was almost 3 months ago. My old stories a lot of them are based on my husband, our arguing, resentfulness, fantasizing about hooking up with other people, I even kissed and touched someone else. I was sure I...

    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.

    OUR STORY, PART THREE After the movie,

    we went back to my house to have a drink and hang out. As much as I wish I could remember our first kiss that night, it is a blur. I do know that we spent the whole night alternating between talking, laughing and making out. We did not make love that night, but fell asleep in...

    OUR STORY, PART ONE I first laid eyes on M in

    1994 while working my first job after graduating college. I only saw him on occasion because he was a film supplier for the company, but I do remember taking notice of him. Dark complexion, dark brown eyes, jet black hair. He was nice looking, but I was happily married at time...

    This is my second marriage & I'm really happy

    with him. My kids adore him & I'm glad he's a better father figure than my first husband was. My first marriage was abusive & violent. The only good thing that came out of it was 4 children. How can I move on? I'm sick of dwelling in the past & being bitter about it. I don't...

    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...

    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.

    what's going on, does he have someone else... well we talked and I told him he keeps going into a shell and locks me out... he didn't know he was doing that.... one of our probs solved... he's actually talking to me, making jokes and being affectionate.... let's hope it stays...

    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...

    Feeling alone & ignored!

    My husband's 1st wife cheated on him twice. After 3 short years as his wife I am starting to understand why. No one wants to feel alone in their marriage. I don't want to cheat. I just want affection & communication from my husband. Sigh

    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 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 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...

    Why is it when you're married everyone expects

    you to be happy with your spouse? Why can't we be honest and say I have had enough with out being judged for it? No I am not happy... Get over it.

    Hi, I need some advice.

    .. Basically, we don't have a sexual relationship & I'm OK with that because this guy is everything I thought I could never have. He has a really tight foreskin & he's saying he wants to get circumcised. He's Hindu & I don't think it's acceptable in his religion. He's 39 & I don...

    The other night, in a rare moment,

    neither my spouse nor I were glued to our phones, checking emails, perusing social media, etc. I had been down that day (I struggle with depression) and my husband sat down, looked at me and asked how I was. We began talking about life, the world, our daughter, our childhoods...

    A perfect date night last night.

    Dinner, movie and great sex. Followed by a huge fight today. What the heck, we rarely fight and this one really came out of no where. While things seem to have calmed now, I still feel a little uneasy and upset. Can't wait until these feeling pass.

    My marriage is great!

    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...

    There is nothing sexier

    than a man who knows when to be firm and when to gentle. A man who can still make you blush after 18 years together. A man who, no matter how busy and successful, still takes time to play Legos with the kids and snuggle with the wife. He finishes my sentences. He can read my...
