    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. :)

    Trying to make the decision to leave the wife I

    love and the children I adore. Is the single hardest place I have ever been in my life. It is not what I want to do, I do not want to give up. Is there love there? Yes. Is there confusion? Yes. But the only move I may have to get my wife and family back. Is to leave.

    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...

    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...

    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 can't say anything

    that she doesn't want to hear without getting a blowup in return. Why do I bother saying anything at all?

    I love my husband so much.

    I love that he can sense my needs without me even saying a word. That he can look at me and make my heart flutter, even after 17 years. Love and instinct, a bond stronger than words. He is my soul mate, my lover, and my best friend. I thank God every day for him.

    I'm married, I really love him a lot.

    We are very opposite in good ways, but it's difficult at times. We went though a very rough patch about six years ago and I didn't think I would make it through it alive. He made a lot of really big mistakes and took me for granted. However, he has really tried to make changes...

    I know your troubled, I know your not happy. I only wish I could fix it all for you. I wish I could get out my tools and make it all better. But I understand that I cannot. As much as it hurts my souls to know my angle is battling with such turmoil and uncertainty. The more...

    I'm running out of motivation to work things

    out with my husband. A series of events lately have had a negative impact on our lives, and they are all due to poor choices on his part- driving intoxicated which led to him begrudgingly going to treatment (he claims he has been sober 8 months now, but he hid it from me for...

    Have you experienced "the seven year itch" in

    your marriage? How did you get through it? How long did it last? Did you separate? Your insights to those who have been to where I seen to be now will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know what to feel anymore.

    Is it possible to live in a single married state forever? I care, but I don't care. We've been together for 30 years, about to married 29. It feels more like friendship love instead of married love. I know life happens, everyday stress, children. I'm out of town with my son and...

    My sweet hubby came home to find the kids

    and me playing outside and dinner waiting. Then we all sat down and watched a cute family movie. Now I can hear him upstairs reading them their Bible story. I love this man with my whole heart.

    for the family. I very rarely cook actually but it goes ok when I do. I made sure not to overdo it with the spices this time. The last time no one would eat it because it was too spicy. They could smell it lol. So I took it easy this time. Everyone lived outside of the musical...

    And I have the sweetest husband.

    We met, dated seven weeks, and got married. This past year and a half has literally been the best of my life, even though I still have baggage from the past. My husband has taken over what I can't do for myself any longer. If he didn't enter my life, I would be dead right...

    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.

    I have been married almost 12 years.

    She is truly an exceptional person. Kind, generous, smart, outstanding mother, sexy too. I worked hard to deserve such a wife but I am so very lucky.

    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...

    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...

    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.
