    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...

    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...

    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...
