    I Can't Figure Out What To Do

    I love my husband, but I cannot stand our marriage. We had a super-passionate start, with tons of interests in common, and a scarily powerful attraction. But now, 6 six years later, I find myself silenced by his maddeningly circular arguments and justifications, with new reasons...

    My husband and I have been fighting. It is all my fault because I got mad at him for sleeping until 2:30 in the afternoon. If he just did this occasionally it wouldn't be so bad, but he does it a lot, several times a week I figure. And I think that is hurting his job searching...
