    Not In Love Very Very Sad

    My husband is perfect in every way. We have two beautiful children. But I am not in love nor I am I attracted to him. In fact, I am disgusted and repulsed by him. I just gave up on love when I was young because I got my heart broken a couple of times and I am very sensitive. I...

    Lonely But Not Alone...

    I am 35 years old with two children and a husband.  He is good to me, doesn't hit me, argue with me or complain, he also doesn't talk to me, help around the house, know how to pay the bills or have an opinion on anything.  He is as good of a dad as he can be and the...
