    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...

    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 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...

    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...
