    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...

    I don't regret my decision to have sex before marriage. I was 17 and he was 19. It wasn't with the ideal person, and it wasn't great either, but I changed from that experience.
