    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 :)

    Stuck In a Sexless Marriage

    I do not consider myself old or unattractive. I am a kind loving man who really listens and cares. My wife has a debilitating disease like ruematoid arthritis. We do not have sex anymore. It's October 2007 now and I haven't had sex since April sometime, I think. I'm not even sure...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
