    Well, long story short!

    The other day my Wife who I loved with all my heart told me she's been feeling that she isn't 'In love' with me any more. 16 years together, just over 10 years married. To say I'm hurt in a major understatement. No there's a problem, let's work on it, change things. Just it's...

    He moved out this past weekend.

    He told me I could just say the word and it wouldn't have to be like this. But it does have to. I REFUSE to live in a marriage devoid of intimacy of any kind for any longer! He played the "divorce card", but I win.

    My husband and I were planning to make a drive to fort worth tonight to visit his sister.  We didn't get to go because I went to the ER for chest pain (it's not my heart or lungs, it's acute costochondritis which is some kind of inflammation of the cartilage in the chest and...

    When I was growing up,

    my mother always used to tell me - "When you get married - it will be to a man who will love you for you. A man who really loves you won't try to change you. He will love you for who you are." Mom was wrong.

    I had a bit of an epiphany.

    I realize now all he ever wanted was a superficial relationship, and if I'm being honest, it's probably all he has ever been equipped for. I have never wanted a superficial relationship, and if I'm being honest, that is something I will never be equipped for.

    I feel that we are just roommates sometimes.

    I feel my eyes wondering but know I could never go through with anything like that. We get along well and are very considerate of each other but is it wrong for me to want "a little more"?

    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...
