    Don't Know Why My Wife Changes The Facts So Much

    I'm new to this group. My wife has a problem with the facts, well we all do sometimes, but she takes it to the extreme. Usually the story changes to make others look bad, sometimes me. She is a big complainer, criticizes almost everything and just does not admit to mistakes. She...

    What Was I Thinking?!

    My third marriage turned out to be a nightmare. How could an independant business woman who had spent the time to "work on loving herself" fall for a sociopathic liar? Well as it turns out, if you don't figure out what caused all your previous failed relationships, you can't find...

    I love my husband and can't imagine my life

    without him. Not only he gives me the stability I need, he also feels the same if not more for me as well. He has severe OCD and is constantly trying to conceal it. He embraces his so-called, "disability" and doesn't mind it as much as others with OCD. Therefore he conceals it...
