    Had first marriage counseling appointment.

    She believes our problems are fixable, I'm not so sure. I didn't get into detail about our main problem, but I believe I said enough to let her know its occurred repeatedly in my marriage. By definition of law it could be considered sexual assault . Unwanted sexual touch. It's...

    I'm tired and beat down by marriage!

    A man should never move into a home with his wife. Just speaking from my own experience; I've sacrificed every ounce of my manhood.

    Something's just very wrong with my H.

    He often behaves and speaks like a spoiled little boy or insecure woman! Before I went to get some household items earlier today, he mentioned to pick up his body wash and shampoo. In the store, I again wondered why he just has to have shampoo when he keeps his head entirely...

    He wants me to go to a therapist.

    He thinks that if I talk to someone, all the craziness that I feel will be made normal. I tried to tell him that me staying was my way of loving, it was just about as much as I could do. Every morning when I wake up and decide to stay, when I choose this life yet again, that...

    I found a condom wrapper in our bedroom.

    Again. They keep appearing - and he swears he has no idea where they come from. I think I'm experiencing every emotion possible as I sit and look at this little piece of torn-open foil.

    My idea of marriage and the reality of it (for

    me) are so far off the mark that I don't consider myself to be married. Is that weird? Maybe it should be ended. I may or may not ever be with someone again but isn't it better to be alone than to settle for crumbs? I'm sure he would see it differently.

    So Unhappy I Wish I Were Dead

    I have been married for 25 years. They have all been pretty terrible. Each year I think it can't get any worse but it does. I am so totally ignored in my house that when I speak, everyone talks right over me like I'm not there. The thing that is the worst of all is how my husband...
