    Second Time, Second Mistake?

    I am on my second marriage. Next month will be our four year anniversary. Yet, I feel like we have more bad days than good days. Or at least, I find myself feeling more sad and angry than I do happy and content. We are both Christians and we met on an online internet dating site...

    I have been married 23 years.

    I have always been the strong one, the one who makes the hard decisions, the one who pays the bills, the one who deals with the unpleasant side of life. My husband has grown complacent in our relationship. He does not seem to care about my feelings, the stress I am under, or the...
