  1. Considering Divorce or Separation
    My name is Aerial. I am 23 years old. I have been with my fiance for almost 5 years now. We have an 11 month old son together. I went through some post pardon depression. Not the kind that makes you hate your child, the kind that makes you cry over commercials & get easily over emotional &...
  2. The Ladies' Lounge
    (sorry if long and/or spelling mistakes! not my native tongue!) We've been divorced for over two years now. We share custody, about 40/60 percent, my son[6y/o] is with me a little more often. The divorce was messy, but the court ordered mediation worked wonders, and now we are even able to...
  3. The Ladies' Lounge
    I was separated for almost a year when I met this man and we became friends. Truly only friends no sexual contact whatsoever. After almost a year, he and I became intimate a few times not knowing he was married. This resulted in a pregnancy. When I told him of the pregnancy he basically told me...
  4. The Family & Parenting Forums
    My wife and I are having major problems (which I won't get into) and we don't think we can live together. We have a 2-month old daughter. The question is this: for our daughter's sake, is it better for us to stay together in a marriage we are both unhappy with so that our daughter has a family...
  5. General Relationship Discussion
    My wife was not who I was thought she was. Her personality is some one that now clashes with mine on many views. If we had a child I know that we would not be able to agree on how to raise them. When we first were together we agreed on children but since the change I can't see it happening. If...
  6. General Relationship Discussion
    I know this must be a recurring question, but how does one date being a single mother? I have a 3 year old, and my babysitters are my grandmother, and parents. My parents don't like to babysit often, and my grandmother babysits while I am at work. I want to meet someone, and do not want my...
  7. Going Through Divorce or Separation
    My wife asked for a separation on Monday night. I have been working extra hours at a second job because we have been saving money to by a home, the past couple of weeks she has been hanging out with the neighbor whom we are friends with while I'm at work so she isn't "bored". Well now she...
  8. Physical & Mental Health Issues
    Hi all....some advice please. We got married 6 months ago, everything seemed right. Things have taken a turn for the worst lately. She changed a few months ago and got a bit more withdrawn. She recently let me know that she has been depressed. I think that it boils down to money. My checks pay...
  9. Coping with Infidelity
    I'm trying to better understand my wife's affair (not that I ever fully will) by doing some research. Her parents divorced when she was young, and I'm trying to find information on the effects of divorce on a child's future relationships. Is there a simpler term for "grown child of divorce"?
  10. Coping with Infidelity
    I'm trying to understand the thinking of women who walk out on their families, choosing to be FULL time with some AP and PART TIME with their children. Like my STBXW. Women have every right to leave a husband who is cheating, a drug addict, abusive, alcoholic, or guilty of willful nonsupport...

  13. Considering Divorce or Separation
    So, I am not going to go into the minutia of why I am considering divorcing my wife as there are many many reasons. Let's just say we are completly different people now and it's just not working out. That being said, we have a 2yr old together. This has been the main deterrent in preventing...
  14. Considering Divorce or Separation
    OK... you've heard it before but here goes. I find this dilemma unbearable and quite incredible as well. Married 25 years. There has never been great passion or intimacy, but it was ok. There's been none whatsoever in a very long time. Due to the lack of any intimacy and affection, I did...
  15. Considering Divorce or Separation
    Hello all, Last Tuesday my wife admitted that she has had feelings that she wants to 'run away' from our family (we have a 7yo boy and 3 dogs). Then by Thursday she told me she needs me to give her some space. I have told her I am still madly in love with her and that I would fight for her and...

  17. Physical & Mental Health Issues
    My wife and I have been married for over 3 years now, and we dated for some time before that (a few years), but now she feels as though we married too young, or at least she did. I recently returned home from a TDY (for non military is like a business trip) that was over a month long. Last...
  18. The Ladies' Lounge
    So my husband just found out that he is the biological father of a child who is now 11 years old. He was contacted by Child Support because she's on public assistance. He submitted to a DNA test and the test came back positive. The kid turns 11 in April and now I feel like my whole world has...
  19. General Relationship Discussion
    Every day I am thinking of divorce, planning and figuring how to make it work. Reworking the numbers, thinking about logistics. I would not be here but for the child we have. My hesitation is only because of her. I do not want her world to crash, and her to suffer. My husband and I were...
  20. Coping with Infidelity
    Back in early January, I was in bed with my wife, spooning her, as I did almost every night. We were best friends, companions, parents to our 2 1/2 year old son. I was a loving husband, and she was a loving wife. We married at 19 -- did the Vegas drive-thru wedding, and for the most part, we...
