    He

    He came into my life at 19.  At 19, how the hell would I know what I would want out of life?  How would I know what qualities I would out of a partner for life? I married far too young, and it is one decision in my life I truly regret.  We did grow apart.  ...

    My husband and I were coworkers.

    At first, I had little interest in him. He kept bugging me and I realized I really liked this guy. I wasn't looking for anything at the time, but you know what they say - when you're not looking, it'll come to you. Basically, I fell head over heels for him. We exchanged phone...

    There were signs right

    before that I should run! I ignored them because I thought it was too close to the wedding date and we already have a child together so he was going to be in my life anyway. I thought it was just cold feet and I should wait until after the honey moon, stupid, but the problems...

    I apologize in advance

    I have been married since August of last year.

    The man I married is a good guy. He is loving and provides for the family. I have one son and so does he. However he has trust issues and very needy. I like having my own space and doing things on my own. He feels the need to have to do everything together. Before I met him, I...

    Marry In Haste

    I married my current husband to spite my last lover but I'm the one who has ended up regretting my actions and instead of him begging me to be his again he's told me he'll never again trust me with his heart.

    I've been married for a month

    and a half. My husband and I were together for 3 1/2 years before the wedding. Shortly before the wedding I started thinking that maybe I was making a mistake, but blamed it on pre-wedding nerves. Now I'm not so sure. Our differences used to seem okay, we had different ideas...

    Drifting Apart

    We had been together for almost 10 years. Life seem to be in a calm, stable place. I proposed, because I love(d) her, it made her so very happy. I felt I was doing the right thing. She was getting patiently older, I was slowly gaining success in life. It would be unfair...

    Blissfull Hell

    I was 20 when I met my(ex) husband and he was handsome, new to me and my friends in our small town and sex was great.  I was blinded by love and security and a way out of small town to have a better chance.  He took complete advantage of my love, loyalty, honesty, and...

    I need advice.

    Why did I do it? I am 22 years old, so is he.  Three months before the wedding he started changing, seemed like it was overnight... I thought it was wedding stress. I asked him 3 weeks before the wedding if he was sure he was ready for it. I was perfectly willing to postpone...
