    Where To Turn....

    We were friends for 3-4 years before getting married...lived together for 2 of those 4 years. He was a cool friend, I like the fact that i could sleep in the same bed with him and he wouldn't touch me, the fact that I could trust him. Maybe I like the thought of helping someone...

    I Can'T See Any Other Solution...

    Married my husband hoping my feelings for him would grow. I respected and admired him-what I could see. I never was too romantic and I really thought we were a good match. I just knew my feelings would deepen and our relationship would thrive. He seemed so giving. Well, I got...

    I'm seriously contemplating divorce.

    I have 3 kids. He doesn't talk to me, do things with me, or have sex with me. I signed up for a husband, not a roommate. What will this do to my children if I leave the marriage? What will it do to me if I stay. It us so miserable being constantly rejected, never touched....I...
