I have finally gotten to the point where I am tired of being married and lonely all the time. I get no respect from my wife of 18 years and she is constantly trying to mold me into this conservative subserviant person. All I want is respect and some affection, Is that too much to ask? I have been without intimacy for almost 10 years now. I would leave but I have no family nearby nor do i have any friends. I hate being lied to and that is all I have heard from her is lies. Hopefully EP has someone out there who understands and this place is not full of fakes and phonys too. Have too much of that already.
