    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...

    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...
