    Knew From the Start...iwa

     I had no peace about this relationship even though I went forward and married him anyway.  It has been four years.  I was not physically attracted to my husband and I am still not.  Don't get me wrong, he is attractive, but I am just not into him even he...

    It's just too hard to live without love at home.

    .. It drains you, it beats you down, even I've got my children's love, though no spousal love. How do we do it? How do we go on with it?!

    We married after knowing each other

    for a few months. Big mistake. I don't know the person I thought I knew and now we have a family. My thoughts are unclear and this is hunting me. I don't know what to do or where to start.

    Too Little Too Late

    I always thought that divorce would never be an issue for me because I waited long enough and got married at 28.  I have discovered that I was foolish to believe that.  "I'll try to make a long story short... I met a man that I thought I had so much in common...

    Nothing in common at all.

    .. Never assumes responsibility for any thing he has ever done.. He places blame on any one or any thing other than him self and therefore never learns any life lessons.. So frustrating to live with someone so clueless.. WTH!

    I married the wrong person

    and I learned from that mistake. There wasn't anything wrong with her, it's just we weren't a good fit. It took years to realize this and even more years to actually do something about it. Anyways, I'm divorced now and I'm quite happy. I'm not sure how my ex-Wife feels about...
