    I Might, I'm Worried

     I might... I love my fiance to death! Right now. But I'm so worried we might not hold out in the future. We don't seem to have a "common thread" It's not that there is anything I DON'T like about him, and it isn't that we've ever fought over anything. I'm just...

    He Ia a Good Person But...

    I married someone hoping that the love would grow. But it never did. It's been 16 years now and I am ready to get a divorce. All I can say is NEVER EVER marry someone unless you are truly "in love" with them. I have been feeling so alone for the past 6 of these years...

    I Know It's My Fault..

    5 years ago I married someone I knew I didn't love. I "liked" him and I needed to be married (the reason is too long to explain) at the time so I did it and I thought liking him would be enough. Well, we didn't even have sex on our honeymoon and as time has gone by...
