    I have been married 17 years to a man

    that had absolutely no sexual desire for me. We were essentially roommates. Although I took very good care of him. Recently went through a life changing event that made me rethink living without intimacy is not right. I met a man about a year ago that was doing some work on my...

    Sooo, yesterday was kind of really bad.

    I was at work and we got into an arguement. He tripped me again when it was lunch time and I told him I was staying in with co workers to go to the holiday luncheon at work. He started going off on me that I'm not going to ear but going to see my " boyfriend" and text and talk...

    Over the holidays the wifelady bought me a set

    of Wüsthof Classic knives. I thought I loved my Chicago Cutlery knives but oh wow the Wüsthofs cut through bellpeppers like a hot knife through butter! They are truly amazing. I have been cooking up a storm!

    I now know why it's called "the institution of

    marriage " because thats where you are going to end up.

    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.

    Yes I am married. Been

    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

    someone told me that in order to make a

    marriage work, your spouse has to make you fall in love with them every 5 years. Is there any fault in this?

    Does your husband get defensive

    when other guys check you out? we went grocery shopping together and I noticed this guy looking, my husband noticed too and smacked my butt. I brushed it off at first but later mentioned it and that was the reason why.

    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 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...

    Marriage is not a fairy tale story.

    The moment we understand this, the less expectation we have for the other person to perform based on a fairy tale role. With coaching and understanding, forgiveness and trust, kindness and love, I still believe that most marriages would be able to stand the test of time.
