    I have been in this marriage for close to 30 years. We have had no intimate contact since the mid 1990s. He has a short fuse and blows up over the littlest thing. He controls everything. If I step out of line he will blow up at me. He decides which vehicles I am "allowed" to...

    It's sad that I married someone despite

    everyone in my life telling me not too. I'm now in a marriage where everyday I find more reasons not to love home. Regretting means not having my wonderful daughter.
