    Last night I asked my husband

    for better communication. I got it. He told me that he only married me because he thought it seemed like the next reasonable step; like it was the right thing to do. He said he loves me but he is not in love with me. He said that it makes no difference whether I'm here or gone...

    Hi everyone. I am 24

    I'm single I would like to get married one day.

    I was wondering if you think marriage can ever work out and how long you should live and date before marriage? Someone I know knew his gf for a year now they have a mortgage and engaged is this time scale too soon?

    Passive Aggressive Wife

    My first ever entry into what might turn out to be a chronicle one day. The people that I hope will really understand me are my daughters and my parents. My wife has never understood me and I have no confidence that she will. She is a nice woman, a good mom to my kids but...

    Unhappy With Marriage

    I am in a loveless marriage. My husband doesn't respect me. He works just off and on as an insurance salesman. I worked three jobs for three years to pay all the bills and he basically sat at home saying he was too tired to work. He finally got a job that paid a monthly income...

    I know this is very sad to say

    but I don't believe in true love or marriages anymore. It is because of the kind of marriage I'm in currently. I used to think when I get married it would be the move of my life and we would be so happy and live happily ever after Now, every time I see a friend get married or...

    I am just going to vent,

    so haters do your hating if you must. I am not in love with my wife anymore. It's been work for too long. She is self absorbed and immature. Nearly always pissy and I am thoroughly annoyed. She is at zero on the sexual scale. This entire enterprise of marriage is a waste and...
