I Am Not Happy With My Husband

unhappily married 246 People

    He told me I'm emotional today.

    I have a shirt fuse. A short happy fuse, a short sad fuse, mad fuse, kinda hurt my feelings seeing he never talks or pays me any attention anyways.

    I'm a married woman contemplating an affair.

    I have to practically beg for sex or affection from my husband. It doesn't matter if I make an effort, get dressed up, plan dates. I feel like I'm not a priority in his life. There's no affection, intimacy, or spark. I can feel his resentment about my successful career (I make...
