    The feeling of gaining control over a situation

    that controlled you is satisfying, liberating and kinda sad.

    I'm married but lonely.

    My husband has no interest in spending time with me or having any meaningful conversations

    My husband is kind of a neat freak.

    Very tidy. He and I had a big fight a few weeks back. After the fight I was still feeling mad at him. So I did the mature thing. After washing/drying my clothes, I threw them all over my side of the room. Leaving them for days just to drive him crazy. He never said a word about...

    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.

    10 years today! Holy crap!

    What a trip! A few months ago I thought I was going to leave. I think staying was the best decision I could have made!

    It's our 20th anniversary today!

    I'm so lucky, after 20 years we're still in love, and are acting like a couple much younger than ourselves! I wanted to say here's to 20 more, but my gender issues will probably prevent that from happening.

    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...

    Been married nearly 7.

    5 years and found out the 7 year itch is a real thing. Thankfully we are surviving it without either one of us straying - touch wood. Has anyone else run into the 7 year itch phenomenon?

    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...

    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...

    Dear wife, I know your confused,

    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...

    For all our flaws, sometimes I see moments

    that remind me of why I like being married occasionally. Like when he gets home from work and I've got wine and hors d'oeuvres ready and we watch Bill Nye in our sweatpants. #marriagedoneright

    Well, I was. I couldnt decide

    if I wanted to remove the group, or present an explanation. I was married. Once the gavel fell no more. While I have half the reasons while it didnt work, she was a lousy woman. Looking for another however. Maybe just rebound, time will tell.

    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.

    Nothing on our schedules. Rain and storms heading our way. Sounds like the perfect night for homemade pizzas, family movies, popcorn and games. I'm so blessed that my husband's heart is at home. I never have to wonder where he is or what he's doing. He is a true family man, a...

    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 would just like to clarify

    because it's not readily evident. I am married, and I am happy to be so. Sometimes we have our differences. But that's marriage. It's no cakewalk, and that's what makes it special; that's what keeps it strong. So yes, I'm happily married. In the politest way possible...

    I'm in a sexless marriage.

    I don't even know if it works any more!!! I have thought about cheating just so I can have some contact...some emotion, other than anger and resentment. It wasn't always this way and that's the hard thing to accept. But I'm not dead... I still have emotional and sexual needs...

    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...

    My house can't be the only one like this.

    It's kind of irritating. My wife will open new items for use before finishing off what's there. Example...the toothpaste, we get through half of the tube and she'll open a new one. I finish off the old one finally and move on to the one she's opened. Then she opens another one...
