My husband and I have been married for 5 years and we can go days without speaking, we never have sex anymore not so much as a kiss goodbye most days. We have 3 kids so I am a stay at home mom and he works. I'm so tried of being ignored! He's always on his phone or watching tv. About 6 months ago we almost went threw a divorce when I caught him searching Craigslist for local hookups. Now I question myself everyday why I let him convince me to try again, till I realized the only reason I'm in this marriage is for my kids. I have no one to talk to because everyone says he's such a good guy but no one understands they don't see everything that happens behind closed doors. I want to fix my marriage for my family but I'm lost on where to begin. He says he does nothing wrong. I feel like a single mother to 4 kids and I'm about ready to break down, shut out the world and never look back.

Life is short...put your foot down and try to fix it...or walk away. You are not doing yourself or your children any favors staying in a broken relationship. Kids aren't stupid.

What you describe is so painful. Your husband is a selfish jerk. Make an appointment to see a psychologist, not a "counselor" (minimally trained), and not a "psychiatrist" (as all they do is push meds to numb you). Make an appointment to see a family lawyer the next day. Give you husband a piece of paper saying you'll see him at the doctor's office, or at the lawyer's office....his call. He can grow a pair and learn how to be a loving husband and selfless father, or you can snip his pair! You have to take care of yourself so you'll have enough strength to take care of the 4 lovelies! Give yourself a hug and make the calls!

It may indeed be time to go... I'm so sorry...
