  2. New Member Forum - Introduce Yourself!
    Hello everyone, new to the community. I really need a guy's opinion here on the topic of gaslighting. I had to have a talk with my husband of 15 years over sex. He 100% pulled away from me for several years. Nothing, and I mean nothing in the sex department. Then a few months ago, he just came...
  3. New Member Forum - Introduce Yourself!
    Hi, I'm not really sure how this kind of thing works, but I'm looking for support and objective opinions on my situation.

  4. New Member Forum - Introduce Yourself!
    My wife and I are starting our 55th year of marriage (mercy! where did the time go?), and we have learned a number of things about how to make our marriage work. I doubt that we have THE answer for any one marriage, but we have had lots of valuable experience. We may be able to help some couples...
  5. General Relationship Discussion
    When I was dating my now husband he was always a man of few words. Not much of a conversation starter but could keep a conversation going if interested. Over the 8 years of knowing each other we have always had the same issue of communication. I have tried so very hard to get to know him and...
  6. General Relationship Discussion
    For many years now my husband and I have had this constant argument hanging over our heads. And any time we have it, it ends up always being my fault. I either said something offensive or just said something that turns him off completely. I am a sarcastic person, I have been pretty much my...

  10. The Family & Parenting Forums
    Our toddler watches 2-3-4 hours of TV everyday and it's driving me crazy!! I saw studies that it affects development a bunch, especially at such a young age.. But playing with my toddler for 2-3-4 extra hours also kinda drives me crazy! And my wife is the same way. I thought after we put the...

  12. The Ladies' Lounge
    First of all I'm sorry for posting to the women's section, but I'm tired of reading posts suggesting you put recorders in your wife's car and read her text messages to find out the truth. Also I want to apologize for the length of the this post.. My situation isn't pretty, my wife and I...
