    Is It Wort It?

    I sleep next to him every single night and I see him every day. We already spend enough time together but in a way I still feel so distant from him. I know we are completely different but it hasnt been much of an issue until a few months ago. We are as opposite as we can be in...

    I Feel Ignored

    This is mild compared to some of the problems I read on here, but this still counts as my first actually personal post on here. I'm married, and I love my wife to death, but lately, I feel very disconnected from her. I think this is due to several factors. She is in a band now...
