    Of Course!

    Do I Exist?

    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...
