    I Feel Alone

    I cant say when it happened exactly but there are definite times I feel like I live alone in my house. Isn't there a song called separate lives? like we live the same house but nothing to connect us really as a couple.. as parents we do fine..

    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...

    What Is the Point, Really?

    An acquaintance told me today "For someone who's supposed to be in the partnership of marriage, you are incredibly alone".  That REALLY got to me, because... see... today is supposed to be my 3rd wedding anniversary - we started the day arguing, and are ending...

    Alone

    What went wrong?  I am alone and I don't have the answers.  My husband has cheated on me with prostitutes and I tried to forgive.  Truth is, I don't forgive him.  I can't stand him.  He is on the road ten to twelve days at a time and when he is here for...

    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...

    Too Complicated To Leave, Too Painful To Stay.

    People think that leaving a marriage is the answer, but when you lose your retirement, your health insurance and everything you have worked for at 60 years old, you also walk away from yourself and leave yourself in financial ruin you will never recover from, leaving isn't an...

    I Wonder When I First Felt It

    There are no kids and we can both be somewhat private people who need some time and some space. That being said I didn't expect to be replaced by cats to the point where she talks to them while I'm talking and snaps at me if stop talking. I didn't expect that a hug would be as...

    It's Life ... I Guess

    You grow up, you met someone. You grow together and then ... you grow apart. My fault. Well, no. It's really nobody's fault. It's life, I think. People somehow just have things in common that as you get older they seem further away. It's not the same. Different interest...
