    15 Years of "I'm Sorry"

    Alcoholism does interesting things to a relationship. Alcohol can be a truth serum. You can be so nice when you're sober, but so cruel when your drunk. If you really don't like me have the stones to say it to me sober. Don't be nice to me while your sober, and rude -hurtful...

    There are so many unknowns with this divorce.

    What I do know is that I am falling apart slowing. Rejection from the person who said he loved me forever is tough. I fall asleep every night crying. I wake up so many times - I don't even know if one can call it sleep. I wake up wondering what's going to happen and if my...

    Why Did This Happen?

    I was married for more than half my life. My husband started shutting me out, only talking during dinner than off to his computer. The more I tried to talk to him and get him to tell me what was wrong the more he tuned me out. Finally one day he says if your so damn unhappy I...

    Does anyone feel like you are the black sheep

    at family functions? I was married for less than a year, I was madly in love but my "wife" was conflicted and ran. I feel like my family and friends judge me for making a poor decision, it's frustrating because I just wanted to be happy and in love and now I wear this scar.

    Don't Know Where To Start

    It is such a long story, needless to say, after 11 years, my husband phoned the police, lied to them saying that I was alcoholic and he couldn't "control" me, so they removed me for a 12 hour "cooling off" period. When I returned the next day I was told "2 more day's". 2 day's...

    Marriage protects men,

    women and children emotionally, physically and economically. It shouldn't be so easy to discard. Husbands need to realize that a divorce would not heal his years of built-up resentments nearly as effectively as working together with a wife who now was giving her all, with him...
