    He's Just Not Nice To Me Anymore

    My husband isn't nice to me. He's not mean either. I just want to be treated nicely. Not ignored and not treated like I don't exist unless he wants to have sex. I don't want to be in a marriage that isn't a real partnership but here I am. Everytime I try to have a conversation...

    Ignored and Undermined

    My husband and I have been married for 14 years. He's an awesome father but a horrible husband. He ignores me. On a daily basis, we're both concerned about the kids, but he is a little overly so. He makes time to do anything they want, anytime. But if I even ask him to watch a...

    We were really great friends

    for years. We used to be really close. After less than a year of marriage I have to beg for his attention he's always too busy for me and I'm tired of crying myself to sleep. This feeling hurts like hell.
