    To married men. What are some reasons

    why you stepped out on your marriage? What caused you to cheat and did it makes you have a guilty cautions(think she's probably cheating too) did it work out with the other woman(leave your wife for her) or did it make you realize you wife is really all you need?

    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 think being married is a most difficult task.

    I am married to the same person for 27 years and know him for 29 years.He has many faults .I too have faults too.I think marriage is like walking on a high wall .If you don't balance yourself ,you will fall.If you nurture it ,you can reach great heights.

    When I got married, I whole heartedly believed

    my wife said yes because she couldn't see herself living the rest of her life without me. I now think she is 'willing' to spend the rest of her life with me as an obligation, and I can't say that I don't feel the same. I never envisioned love or family as a sacrifice, but a...

    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.

    Protecting My Marriage & Reputation

    I recently write a story about women obeying men. My opinion on this is that I will not obey a man, ever. My husband and I have been married for sixteen years (fourteen dating exclusively), so a total of over 30 years. The reason are marriage works isn't just because we love...

    Communication is so important!

    Its something we significantly lack - me and my husband - in our marriage. Is it odd that I don't know what my husband does / where he goes during the day? We barely talk or text all day and when we are home we don't talk much either... especially with me focusing on the gym...

    My husband just doesn't seem to care.

    I tell him my feelings when crying and he says nothing and just gives me a look. He isn't touchy how I wish he was and she provokes situations and when they arise and I get angry he tries to play victim.

    Never Thought It Would Happen...

    Really. For most of my life, I never thought I was desirable marriage material. But for some reason, a wonderful woman saw in me something that I still have yet to see in myself and agreed to be my wife. I'm only newly wed right now, and while the relationship itself hasn't...

    I married the man of my dreams two years ago.

    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. :)
