    I've been married for a few years to my husband. He's a generally nice guy. He has a steady job, doesn't have gross habits, and pretty much let's me be myself. In some ways, he's the ideal partner. He just drinks too much, though and this has been a problem in the years we've...

    Young

    I am 23 years old, and I feel I have found the one and only, but I am not ready to give up everything for him, there is a part inside me who just wants to mingle with other men just for fun.

    Wishing I Were Single

    I am in a marriage and I wish that I was not at times. There is no love there anymore. We never have sex and we barley speak. We have been together for 10 years. We have kids together so that makes it even harder.
