    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...

    I got married at 26, living in my parents house,

    and my mom and I didn't get along. I felt she was controlling and woo ride too damn much. She still does, but I only have to deal with her and my dad once a year when they come on "vacation" and my dad does a project for my house. Anyway, my hubby's a good guy, but is kinda...

    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...
