    I have been married to a compulsive liar

    for 45 years and you would think I would either get use to it or leave. Well it still breaks my heart each time he lies, I've tried so many different tactics and none work. I would love to leave but like a lot of women my age, and my health problems, I feel stuck. Years ago I...

    It Never Ends, Does It?

    My husband and I have been married for over 12 years. We met through the internet and married when we were pretty young. It was the biggest mistake I ever made, but by the time I figured that out, he had us in serious debt and I was unemployed. He lies about everything from money...

    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 met John (not his real name) on December 28, 2011, and he seemed-although a little pushy-perfect. He was cool, attractive, and all around just seemed like a great guy who had everything together. When I introduced my 7 year old son to him he absolutely fell in love. He cried...

    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...
