    It was our wedding anniversary 2 days ago.

    We wished each other and he took me for anniversary dinner. When we got there, we ordered our favourite food. I couldn't wait to eat it. As soon as we started eating, he began arguing for no reason and we left everything and came back home. It was our first anniversary. I'm...

    I am a very private person.

    ..posting here is a bit uncomfortable and foreign to me. I hope letting the thoughts that play in my head out will help a bit. A couple very close friends are aware of my marital issues, I trust them immensely. Outside of them, no one has a clue of issues. I am a very positive...

    I feel badly that I've fallen out of love with

    my husband. It's primarily based upon lack of respect. He constantly has apologized over and over again for YEARS because I must work harder to be with him than without him! He's lazy compared to me and has yet to get his career together. I've done all that I can to be a...
