    It Doesn't Get Better With Age

    42 years ago, at 19 and 17, my wife and I "fell in love," lived together, got married, and everything went downhill from there. She tossed out her birth control pills without telling me and I wasn't permitted to have a vasectomy until I'd had two kids, by Texas state...

    I Am Sick of My Lazy Wife

    We've been married almost 20 yrs.  She isn't the same girl I married.  We have 2 beautiful children who I love to death.  My wife can't stand to spend 5 mins with either of them.  This summer break is already a nightmare!  She has a part time job, works...

    My Life Is Spent Keeping Her Happy.....at My Expense

    I hate my wife for various reasons.  There are moments that I can actually stomach her but mostly I just wait for her to go to work and be gone.  I don't even like talking to her.  We are so different.  Im a "glass is half full" and shes a "what...

    My Wife Hates Herself..

    Actually my wife loathes herself.  I did not realize it when we were dating, but after marraige the truth slowly manifested itself piece by piece.  The thing about being married to a person that hates themselves, is that they hate you too.  They pretty...

    I work day and night,

    earn a six-figure salary and am a senior manager, and my wife berates me throughout the day that I don't make enough money and that she has to work. She snaps at anything I do (angrily retorts when I say most anything) and is just miserable to be around. Many people I know...

    We were engaged for 2 years

    and married for 1. We dated 1 year prior to getting engaged and everything seemed great. I was an idiot because she pressured me into getting married because she wanted us to live together, which I was fine with but she said her mom would be pissed if we weren't at least engaged...

    I can't stand my ***** wife for another day! September marks two years without sex. My dog is starting to look good to me. I work with toothless fat guys with hairy necks that get more trim than I do. It's pathetic.  Sits on the ******* couch with an attitude ands always...

      I am so done with my wife. I am so sick to death of her s**t, and she won’t get it together. I understand that trying to change someone to suit your wants is BS and shouldn't be don as it isn't fair to either. However, if your spouse is a total slug...

    Sorry To Interrupt

    My husband and I had a major blow out recently.  Really it pales in comparison to the years of fighting we've gone through.  Of the seven years we've been married so far I have to say this last one has been the best and even then it's been hell. I found this group...

    when I married. I married someone with no common interests, so what I want to do never really happens. This is ok though in the bigger picture, however .. .i try to be as nice as possible, i cook, clean, do laundry .. probably 80% of the house work easily. She doesnt really move...

    What Happened to My Life?

    Well, in some respects I suppose I am lucky. My wife does not spend money with abandon, doesn't cheat on me, and at least does a little bit of work around the house (more on that later). We are each employed with decent jobs. But she is a self-centered, domineering...

    My wife developed OCD

    while pregnant with our first child. Before this illness we were amazing. When we first got together we didn't label what we had, we decided that we would wake up every day and decide if we liked what we were doing, as long as the answer was "yes" we would keep doing it. We...

    I hate my wife. I find myself saying it tourette-like.  So far I'm only whispering, but soon the volume will increase. I have none of the horrors in the other stories. My wife is faithful and she understands the need to spend less most of the time.  I still...

    I don't hate my wife.

    I think she's a great mother to my kids, but sure knows how to get on my damn nerve. I would do great things if I never married this dream crusher. I slipped up and got her pregnant back in college and you know the rest of the story.

    I don't really hate my wife.

    It's just that I don't love her like a wife any longer. She's just a roommate and we have a great division of labor. In our relationship, there's me and there's her, but there's no longer an "Us". We have no real common interests. We just exist together. It's been almost...

    She is intelligent, talented, and, in her way, attractive. HOWEVER, she is also narcissistic, rude, uncaring, self-absorbed, and extremely given to self-pity. She has cheated on me, wooing an ex-high school boyfriend with complete hog-wash stories about how tough, yet...
