    My wife and I have been married

    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 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...

    So it's our 10 year anniversary today,

    and 3 months ago, I left it all in his hands to set it all up. So he comes home last night, and at midnight I surprise him with a ring, necklace, bracelet, and balloons which I set up in the bathroom when he gets up after midnight. He sees it at 12:22am, and says thank you...

    Will Never Forget It

    The day we promised that we would love each other, and stay with each other, poor or rich, ill or well. That day was about sixteen years ago. My bridesmaid was my own daughter, product of an unsuccessful marriage and then divorce. At the time she was five. Being divorced and...

    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.

    Read this somewhere :) A wife wrote on her

    Facebook, "My husband is out with the wife of another man, while I am at home sleeping with the husband of another woman." The husband commented, "Come on... The reality is that I am bringing our daughter out while you stay at home to look after our 2 year old son."

    Is it just me who's turned off without any

    foreplay first rather than going straight to the action? Another turn off is waking me up and trying to just go straight to the action. I fall asleep around 10p-12a, so that's when H comes and ends up dry h*mping. I express this, but no changes :( -I feel like my feelings...

    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.

    to the man of my dreams (: He's kind,

    selfless, and loves like a hurricane. (Felt like throwing in some David Crowder.) He's not controlling and he trusts me. Sure, we've had some rough patches. But til death do us part. He's my other half and I couldn't imagine being with anyone else.
