    I Have A Boring Unfulfilling Marriage...

    My marriage wasn't always boring and unfulfilling. I think it began about 20 years ago when my husband and I relocated from the east coast of Canada to live on the west coast. At first it was great just getting away from both families, because there were times when they just...

    I've been away on a business trip the last two

    days and return tomorrow night. My wife is terrified at home that I am cheating on her... I suppose her concerns are justified since we openly acknowledged to each other that I am not getting from her what I need and crave, and that I will die never knowing. Add to that...

    My Wife Is Gone A Lot

    My wife can hardly say no at work. She agrees to additional work above and beyond the scope of her responsibilities very easily. The additional tasking translates into more hours away from me and our two children, as well as stress that she brings home. Not only does it...

    No Where To Turn

    Have been married for 24 years and the last 5 have not been good. We have 2 children 19 and 16. My issues differ from my wife's. I just don't feel for her like I used to. Our sex life is pretty much non existent and boring. Lucky if its once a month, and its not because of me. We...

    I don't regret my decision to have sex before marriage. I was 17 and he was 19. It wasn't with the ideal person, and it wasn't great either, but I changed from that experience.
