    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...

    Should "maintaining attractiveness" be part of

    a marriage contract? After 7 years of marriage hubby has gained 25 pounds of fat and looks very different. After 2 kids I weigh the same because I run/strength train 5 times a week. We used to run together he now says he never liked working out actually and basically just gave...

    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...

    I was always taught never to go to bed on a

    cross word. I haven't been married that long but I always tell my husband I love him and thank him for today before I go to sleep. Sometimes I haven't wanted to, sometimes he hasn't replied, sometimes I haven't even felt like I liked him, sometimes I have been hurting beyond...

    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. :)

    Full moons were meant to be spent alone,

    I think. We couldn't sleep, so we started to talk about big, stupid, hypothetical questions, just to play with ideas until we felt tired. And things led, as they always did, to him getting withdrawn and hurt, me kicking myself for opening my mouth in the first place, and both of...

    I told myself months ago

    that I would stop asking my husband to do things, the rejection became too much. I found out earlier today that our house would be kid free tonight. One more try I thought, for a date night. I have heard him make comments himself about how long its been. I should have known...

    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 love it when he calls me just to hear my voice

    because he misses me. The way he holds me like he can't make himself let go. The kisses that are still as goosebump inducing as they were 18 years ago. I love that people ask us what our secret is to being perpetual newly weds, even after 15 years of marriage and 2 kids (and 2...

    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...

    "If you're not happy

    as an individual or satisfied with your inner self, then don't expect to be happy when you're married. It is most ignorant to expect a spouse to make you happy when you can't even find the sense of wholesomeness, joy and peace in your own heart." - A good friend

    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.

    I couldn't sleep last night,

    then I went through my husband's cellphone since he gave me the access to it. Then I found a girl commented one of his posts of food in a restaurant "why don't you take me with you?" and his reply was four smiling faces. Back then I was on a trip for one month, leaving him alone...

    My husband recently took a job at a bigger

    A group of young men sang this in church this

    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...

    we saw my ex lover from afar and my husband and I had a conversation that went like this: Me: He used to call me "my princess". Why don't you call me princess? Him: *exasperated sigh* I do call you princess but in other ways. Me: Like what? Him: My Mulan Me: ..... fair enough
