    My Husband Is A Demon.

    First of all, I'm super relieved that there is a site where I can vent; this was the first site that came up after I googled: 'I hate my husband'. Well, I've been with my husband for 6 years; have been married since December 2012. Why I got married? Well, I ask myself that...

    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.

    So Unhappy In My Marriage

    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...

    What Is Going On

    This is what my father in law said when he came to visit me. I was made to feel really intimidated and pressured in my own home. How am I supposed to say anything to him, he will always defend and support his daughter. Nobody knows what i feel and i can't cope with it
