    Tired of Crying...

    I hate being miserable.  At first I thought that it was our lack of mutual friends that was the cause of our mutual existence instead of a marriage.  But now I regret seeking out friends because watching their seemingly functional marriages just makes me sad, angry &...

    Stuck In a Marriage

     My marriage has taught me many things about myself. I now realize that the person you get engaged to and the person you marry are two very different things. I tried for years to get my wife involved in our marriage. However, she was always more interested in her work. Why...

    I never dreamed it would turn into this.

    I thought we would be in love forever. Now I find myself living with a roommate who is practically a stranger. He thinks this is a normal part of a long-term marriage (21 years). I say it only becomes this way if you let it. Who says the passion and spark have to die? Doesn't he...
