    New Member Forum - Introduce Yourself!
    In 2014 I got engaged and married my long time sweetheart. We were blissful and happy. Like the kind of mushy stuff everyone envies and says makes them sick, but really they are just jealous of the happiness they perceive. While we were engaged he lost his job, started drinking too much, but...
  4. Is my wife an Alcoholic or am I just a bad husband?

    Relationships and Addiction
    For the past 5 years my wife has been drinking excessively once every few months. Almost every time she drinks to much she turns into a person who hates me. Last night was another one of those nights. She says things like "I want nothing to do with you" several times. She gets very loud and...

    Relationships and Addiction
    Alllllright. Here I am, not knowing who to talk to really about this and I suppose I may need to get it off my chest. Or maybe I'm looking for some advice, I don't know. I just want third party thoughts. A little about me: I'm turning 22 soon and am graduating college, going onto graduate...
  6. Making things right without a clear apology?

    We were both in the wrong many times; however after he got physical one too many times, I moved myself and the kids out of our home, into an apartment.

    I am not sure what to do. My husband of almost 10 years just cheated on me. He went out with a friend, got really drunk, brought home some women they met who had the same music interests to "show them my husband's collection." (My husband and his friend are fanatical about music.) I was...
  8. Problems Not Going Away - Long Post

    General Relationship Discussion
    To fully explain, I need to start at the beginning, so I will go ahead and apologize for this being so lengthy. I had a long term boyfriend when I was in high school who was no good.

  13. Living a Lie

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    I am so tired of pretending that my marriage isn't the failure that it actually is. My husband and I were together for 4 1/2 years before we got married (July 09). I have no idea why we got married. It was this fairy tale idea that marriage would make our relationship stronger and better. It...
