    Marriage Isn't For Everyone

    Joined This Group Ages Ago And It'S Still True

    Marriage can be so good. Someone has committed to having your back, and you theirs... that is supposed to be how it works. I’ve been married twice and divorced twice, so it obviously didn’t work that way for me. I had really high hopes especially the second time, and I...

    I just recently found out

    I Have Become Cynical

    I feel resentful because I have lost faith and hope in marriage. I am in a lonely, unhappy marriage and its made me cynical which I hate. When I see couples getting married I always either think don't bother! Or if I'm feeling a bit more positive that day I hope that they are...
