    The last 14 months could jeopardize the balance.

    She more distant, I feel like a biz partner or work friend. Still trying to return to the inner circle. Get the closeness back. Gonna keep chasing her till she catches me.

    Hubby's going to go hiking with me in a bit.

    It's hard for me to feel anything but cautious & guarded.

    How do you show someone

    that you love that you love them when they clearly do not want to see? There is an overwhelmingly vast number of men who have severe issue with showing emotion. Sure, there are the time honored excuses we makes cling too, society, friends, family and being logical all as a way...

    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. :)

    Is it enough to love,

    and consider your spouse a friend? To not have the heat and passion? Should you stay because you could make it work, and "to not be a statistic". To grow old in the comfort of an attachment that does not satisfy the soul or stir your body. I don't know. It's no ones fault - and...

    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...

    My sister had been "dating" this guy

    who she would have to pull teeth to get him to come see her. He lives with a woman who he claims he's not with. His story is she financially provides for him until he can get on his feet. I know he's not for real and probably in a relationship, just not faithful. My sister kinda...

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    My husband of 26 years and that is 15 years older than me has been having ED problems for the last few years. Which is frustrating all in itself. He has gone to doctors, tried all the medications to no avail and is now so depressed it's driving me nuts. I've been begging him...

    I've just had the most amazing weekend with my

    husband. Like so many others on this site, I found myself spiraling in a direction I never thought possible. Our marriage had lost that excitement. We no longer had the passion, desire or intimacy. We got lost in the day to day stress of life. Work, bills, health problems...

    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.

    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 married the man of my dreams two years ago.

    Ladies, I have spoken to lot of married men

    and most of them say wives give excuses to avoid sex. As a result guys tell you that after marriage sex comes with terms and conditions. In fact other guys admit to have resorted to get sex elsewhere as they were tired of begging at home. Ladies what is your view ?

    My life has been a lie.

    I don't know who to trust anymore or what to believe. I was just told that everyone outside but close is saying that he doesn't love me. This justifies what I'm feeling. He doesn't love me and I see it. I've been crying myself to sleep almost every night. He came up from the...

    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.

    I need someone to share things with.

    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 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.
