    18 year anniversary today.

    9 years since the breast cancer diagnosis (the day before our 9th). 5-1/2 years sexless. 3 years since my affair. Not sure how I feel or what I want.

    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.

    To the love if my life,

    I never express my feelings to you because I am not that kind of person. What better way to tell everyone how I feel. I hope that my jealousy and hard *** attitude you can put up with, that you will never leave me. I love the way you can be clumsy and dense but still...

    My wife had an affair.

    I detected the changes in her personality immediately. I gathered the evidence and confronted her about it. She lied. I brought out my evidence. She admitted it. In practically the same breath she said she wanted an open marriage. I thought about it, and it was either...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    So my hubby has abandoned me

    and I keep talking to him about how it's making me feel. No change at all. The next step is counselor but..... Today for the 6th time he said AGAIN that he will change. I want that emotional connection with him. I've lost it and it's affecting me sexually. Is that weird? I can't...

    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. :)

    Dear wife, Don't say your sorry then continue

    to do what your doing. You don't slam someone's hand in a door say your sorry then keep doing it. Your devastated husband

    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 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...

    My husband is the most amazing man.

    I love him so much and am so proud of him for the man he's become. We've grown up together. I've been with him half of my life. I wouldn't trade a second.

    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...

    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 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.

    Yep. He doesn't flirt.

    He doesn't put himself in dangerous situations. He keeps his eyes only for his wife. And vice versa.

    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
