    Indecision

    I can't decide what is best to do.  I have been married for 21 years.  I have 3 kids ages 19, 16 & 10.  The marriage,it seems to me, now that I think about it, has been going downhill for about the last 16 years.  I don't want to seem like I am whining but I...

    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...

    No one comes as a package.

    I know this .. but this is a hard question. - Do you love your wife? or Do you love your husband? - What are the defects or black spot (s) in your relationship?
