    Respect

    I have been married for almost 13 years to my husband. This is my third, and I always said "final" marriage. Almost from the get go - I have not felt cherished and respected. I don't feel as though I am a priority and he lies about the stupidest, small, insignificant...

    Of Course!

    For me to cherish and respect someone only to not have the same love and respect back will only result in me turning cold and the other party wondering what could possibly be wrong with me that I am just not treating them the same anymore. Do I hate them now? Have I fallen out...

    I do not consider myself old or unattractive. I am a kind loving man who really listens and cares. My wife has a debilitating disease like ruematoid arthritis. We do not have sex anymore. It's October 2007 now and I haven't had sex since April sometime, I think. I'm not even sure...

    I Miss The Way We Talked, I Miss The Times We Had, I Miss The Love We Shared, But Most Of All I Miss The Way You Cared. =(

    I have been married for 2 years now. We have a wonderful 1 yr old son.... I never thought being married can be this lonely. I felt unloved and not cared by my husband. He even forgot our second wedding anniversary. He didn't even greet me he was so busy with his work and doesnt...

    Not Sure If I Can Say It's a Need But a Must.

    If someone can not cherish and respect me they have no place in my life. With that said I hope I do and act in a way that causes someone to cherish and respect me. I know I try :)

    The BS Story

    I wonder sometimes how things could have gone so wrong. I married someone who was acting a certain way, to get the desired result. We started off right, everything seemed to be moving the right direction, seemed to "cherish" each other. Then out of the blue she said "I don't...

    I've been married for 2 years and he and I have a beautiful baby girl who is turning 9 months. Ever since we found out I was pregnant the whole "Love, Honor, and Cherish" thing went out the window.  He is so selfish it's ridiculous. A recent example is when he came home for his...
