    What blows my mind are the things she blurts out

    and then not understand why they bother me. Joking or not after all that has gone on of course I'm sensitive. Of course I over think things. You know as the days go by and I have time to step back from it all. I wonder is this what I want? Is it time for me to say you wanna...

    I wish I had never gotten married.

    I thought when I was alone I was lonely, but I've been lonelier the last few years than ever before in my life. I do love him, but I question whether or not anything was worth all I've given up. I would never ever want to get married again, I don't think I'd even want to be in...

    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 kinda sobbed in the morning

    and my husband asked me what is wrong..I told him that there are times that I feel he doesn't want to spend time with me or just touch me. He told me it wasn't true and cuddled saying that I was the one for him and that I have to think beyond the lack of sex. He later came...

    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. :)
