    I Regret My Marriage.

    My husband is very sensitive. He has had a very different upbringing and the instability still shows.  I knew that there were issues before marriage but I didn't expect him to take things out on me. * There is no violence* And most of the times things are fine. It's just...

    Marriage....

    We were childhood friends who reconnected in adulthood. We rushed into a marriage that I regret. I long for my single life again, not necesarily to be single again, but to have my freedom back. He is angry, difficult, and an all around hateful man. I know I am far from perfect...
