    I Am Losing My Mind

    I met my soul mate over the internet he was in New York and I was in California. He moved to California to be with me but was never content because he had a very young little boy who he missed. I finally agreed to give New York a try and was there for a year while there, I felt...

    I didn't know where else to turn.

    I needed to let this out. My husband and I met on Facebook when he was deployed to Iraq. I was currently in a relationship at the time, but wanted to get to know him despite my current situation. On his two-week leave from Iraq, we went on our first date (Valentine's Day). We...

    A Fool For Experience...

    I was 26. He was 20 when we met. We got married after knowing each other for only a couple months. I've had a lot of experiences in life and the one I never gave a fair chance was the idea of marriage and kids and the whole stereotypical white-picket-fence thing. Well, he said he...

    I Did The Same...

    It is amazing how many of these stories sound just like mine.  I met a guy when I was 22..he was great and caring.  I got scared and ended it. I thought I was too young.  About a year later, I was having some self esteem issues and met another guy.  He...

    Got Married But Not For Love

    This is a story that I've never shared before. I don't know how to feel sometimes, ashamed or good that at least my son has a father figure around. To cut the story short I got married because I didn't want my son to not know his father like I did. My dad left my mum when I was 8...

    Since posting my last experience,

    I've done a lot of thinking. I don't want to live my life this way, and I certainly don't want my son to grow up in an unstable environment. Due in part to the encouragement of you all on EP, I've found the courage to leave, and I will be en route to Indiana (where I'm from...

    I Married Someone I Didn't Love

    It was my second marriage. He really loved me and when he asked me to marry him I thought okay. He was responsible and had good health insurance and I was a mom with 3 kids. My friends told me in the beginning they didn't think we had enough of a bond and that I wouldn't be...

    Why Couldn't I End Things Before They Got So Out Of Hand..

    We started dating when I was 17. It wasn't one of those things that was a long time coming by any means. When he asked me out I said no multiple times until my friend finally got me to agree to going to a movie. I was having a rough time with some of my friends and it was nice to...

    I Will Marry For Everything But Love

    I think when you hit a certain age in my culture the alarm bells start ringing...for my parents obviously (as "open-minded") as they are living in 21st Century as British Asians) but it's always a worry. Constantly hearing from my mother how she just has me left to get married...

    Some Things Are Hard to Explain

    The truth of the matter is that there I was, almost 24 years old, getting married to this person... and even as we were in the middle of the ceremony itself, I was thinking "I have no idea why I am here, and why I am agreeing to marry this person." In retrospect, I...
