    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.

    Once We Were Sexless But Now We Are Sexy As

    I have already mentioned that I love my husband dearly and that we are happily married and have recently celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary.  In a nutshell, we have survived.  And I have also already mentioned that things weren't always as rosy as they are now and we have...

    There have been some truly awful times in my

    marriage and some that were so wonderful, I would have never imagined they could be real were I not living them. From the beginning, friends would tell my husband and me that we had the kind of relationship they wished to someday have. It was never perfect. But we were so in...

    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.

    I can't say anything

    that she doesn't want to hear without getting a blowup in return. Why do I bother saying anything at all?

    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 don't know why I bother.

    If I say something, I'm being mean. If I say something, I'm distant and aloof. And either way, not a word I say is really heard.

    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. :)

    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.

    that scientists have finally been able to single out a food that has been proven in countless cases to greatly reduce sex drive. Stay away from wedding cake!

    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...

    I made chili for dinner last night

    for the family. I very rarely cook actually but it goes ok when I do. I made sure not to overdo it with the spices this time. The last time no one would eat it because it was too spicy. They could smell it lol. So I took it easy this time. Everyone lived outside of the musical...

    Have you experienced "the seven year itch" in

    your marriage? How did you get through it? How long did it last? Did you separate? Your insights to those who have been to where I seen to be now will be greatly appreciated.

    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 if I should keep doing this

    thing where I just don't say how unhappy I am... but he wouldn't care anyway so I don't bother. I don't want to leave but I don't see the point of trying so hard when its never going to be more than me trying.

    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...

    Trying to make the decision to leave the wife I

    love and the children I adore. Is the single hardest place I have ever been in my life. It is not what I want to do, I do not want to give up. Is there love there? Yes. Is there confusion? Yes. But the only move I may have to get my wife and family back. Is to leave.

    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...

    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...
