    We were both Christians when we got married, but I've lost my faith. My wife has gone the other way and now there are demons walking the earth and the Illuminati is poisoning the air, food, and everything else. Haven't told her or our 3 kids. I guess it's either fess-up and...

    My husband has become a complete ***.

    He comes home from work, eats and right after, he gets his laptop and puts on his earbuds and is "gone" for the rest of the night. OR, he falls asleep on the couch, either way, I am left alone. We have grown apart so much over the years that he is a complete stranger to me and...

    Im sure everyone has their ups

    and downs. But maybe for some people they are really just that unhappy and they want to change their life or do something about it. Your happiness counts and it matters. I hope everyone undergoing a stressful marriage finds peace and happiness.

    My birthday is coming up.

    My husband doesn't acknowledge it and seems to pick an argument with me around it. Last year was my 40th birthday and he didn't get me anything...no cake or card...it makes me sad to think about it. My sister brought me a cupcake the next day.

    It makes me sad how so many years spent

    My husband and I agreed to a semi-separation

    and go to marriage counseling - in an effort to save our marriage. We will stay in separate bedrooms and co-parent our children, whom we both love dearly. I am wondering how long this arrangement will work. Any thoughts?

    My husband works all the time.

    I know he works for the family and all. But he neglects me all the time. I've grown further and further apart from him. I've spoken to him about my feelings, but he just dismisses everything I say. Nothing is getting better. It hurts feeling alone and neglected.

    Sometimes I find myself parked outside the
