    I became sick with an incurable disease 7 years ago. It took 2 years to finally find a doctor that need what I had. I was glad I found out what I had; but sad that there was nothing to do about it. My husband seemed to be supportive at first and then became angry that I had...

    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 :)

    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...

    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...

    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...
