    I'm happily married but it's been tough at

    times over our 14 years together. I see a lot of people here having trouble and just want to say that if you really love him/her, tell them honestly how you feel and do all that you can possibly do to make it work. I'm so glad today that I and my wife fought for our marriage to...

    my husband must have this superpower

    where he immediately goes to sleep after his head hits the pillow, it usually takes me 2 hours of laying in bed before I go to sleep

    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.

    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.

    I feel completely alone in my marriage.

    We both value different things. We both have a different way of thinking and perspective. This is sometimes a good thing. But what if you think the other gravitated towards superficial? Anger and patience issues that are dominant when dealing with our kids, not physical...

    Is there anyone here

    who asks their partner if there is anything wrong or to let you how they feel and they just say nothing? as if it would kill them to be honest with you.

    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...

    First and foremost let me apologize,

    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.

    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...

    My husband has just gone interstate with his

    mates for a few days and left me at home with the kids. Surely he would send me a text when his flight landed?! I find out through his father-in-law that he has indeed arrived safely. How come he didn't let me know?

    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.

    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...

    Everyone has skeletons in their closet.

    In a relationship the real question is if your skeletons and their skeletons can live in the same closet.

    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.

    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
