    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...

    I fear my husband might be starting to resent

    me. He spends all of his time and energy working and making money (which he doesn't have to, we have never even come close to danger with our finances; plus, I work). He may resent me because I want to stay in the small town we live in now, but he wants to move to the cities...

    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...

    Yesterday my wife got three bags of clothes

    have to her. So we picked though them and tried on what we liked than passed the rest to my sister. We kept two bags of some truly beautiful things.we were so glad our wardrobe had never been updated in four years. To be honest 8000 per year don't leave much for parents to get...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    But am really tired of his "maybe" comments

    when I ask about doing something. It's getting old. He has suggested earlier this week about going to the movies this weekend. Now it's just "maybe".. When I ask if he wants to even have some fun with me.. Its" maybe"... That doesn't do my self esteem any good.

    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.

    I've just had the most amazing weekend with my

    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.

    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

    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...

    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...

    OUR STORY, PART TWO At this point it was summer

    1999 and both of our divorces had been finalized. Because we worked together, I have to admit I was a little nervous at the thought of dating M. I had seen many office romances go south in a fast and furious fashion, and I wasn't sure I should take the risk. You know what they...

    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...

    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...

    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. :)
