    No Love, Too Much Sex, Not Enough Money...

    ... I'm tired of hearing about terrible marriages. I have so many friends who after 5-18 years of marriage are totally unhappy, and in most cases, it's always "the spouse's fault"! We all need to take a good look at ourselves in the mirror and be reminded a solid...

    Good Marriage

    I see so many groups about bad marriages that I thought I'd check to see if I'm the only person that likes my marriage. Glad to see I'm not! My marriage is good because we're together, faithful, working through our fights (and there are some doozies!), and we have a great sex...

    I Have A Good Marriage...but...

    I do have a good marriage. With a lot of love shared and with a lot of conversations. However, I now feel that I have fallen into a totally worthless stage after my marriage 6 years ago. I was an outgoing, hardworking person. People recognized me as talented and capable. I...
