    Why Not Me?

    Wow, what I would do to be married to someone who loved me for who I am, cherished me and most of all respected me. This is the dream I had since I was 13 years old, but this has never happened to me. One broken marriage, and now in an unhappy marriage. My daughter says she...

    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...

    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 :)

    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...
