  1. Sex in Marriage
    Hi folks, it's been a long time since I've posted. My full story is very long (you can probably see my old posts under my profile if you'd really like to) so I will try my best to keep this short. Essentially, for the entirety of my wife and I's married lives, we've lived in a mostly sexless...

    I've been married more than once and over the course of my marriages I have been through several types of counseling: 1. 3 day weekend (Retrovi) 2. 13 week, 1 day a week course (Radical Love) 3. 1:1 counselor (male and female couple) 4. Self-study (Relationship Rescue) Though every program...

  4. Going Through Divorce or Separation
    Hi Forum, It's been a few months since I've posted. Things were going well, until they weren't. Serial infidelity and/or serial thoughts about infidelity have driven my husband and I farther apart. This time, I've asked for a formal separation with no contact, which my husband has agreed to. He...
  5. General Relationship Discussion
    Hi Everyone, DH and I are having a big struggle with "stonewalling" in our relationship. Basically, DH will shut down and refuse to talk with me at all out of anger for extended periods of time. In the past, I've typically suffered under the silence in my own voiceless anger, but occasionally...
  6. Considering Divorce or Separation
    Two years ago my husband began to change. First he got a promotion, which was great but it added more work hours. Soon after he sadly lost a relative with whom he was really close and it made him realize it was time to rid some poisonous relationships he had. When he started to break down a...
  7. Long Term Success in Marriage
    I really upset my wife last night in a way that has hit a new low for our relationship. I scheduled to meet with a psychologist this week to get my life back together. I have trouble putting my feelings to spoken words. Perhaps I have too many clouded thoughts in my head and I need to clear them...
  8. Reconciliation
    I'm currently separated going on 6 months. We have been together almost 18 years and have had a lot of problems we both contributed to the marriage falling apart. Late last year my h said he didn't see things getting better and decided to leave. Upon leaving he reconnected with someone and...
  9. General Relationship Discussion
    Hi! Sorry this is a bit long but I want your opinions on what you think of my marriage? My husband and I have been married for 9 years we have 3 kids under the age of 8. Heve always been in control in this relationship financially and everything. At first I thought it was because he is jealous...
  10. Sex in Marriage
    Hello friends, I hope I came to the right place for help today. I will try to sum this up as short as possible. Last night, my wife and I were watching a movie. She decides to take a shower before bed. Ok... So I watch a little tv and a good amount of time passes. I decide its time for...
  11. Relationships and Addiction
    Does anyone have any success stories? My husband and I have only been married 4 years and we are in counseling now. I would like to think he can change, but so far I don't see any glimpse of proof. We have a one year old son and ever since he was born, I have taken a "I am not going to let you...
  12. Coping with Infidelity
    First of all, I have never been in this predicament before and I ask for respectful and genuine advice. I have been with my girlfriend for 8 years... (We'll call her Cindy) I truly have always wanted to marry her since we began dating, as well as she. For the past 4 years or so, we have been...
  13. Going Through Divorce or Separation
    Does anyone have a good book to recommend that helped them get through a rough divorce, move on after it, or just find general happiness after their marriage? This next week I'm going for counseling. And in 2-3 weeks after I'll probably have another appointment or two. After that I won't be...
  14. General Relationship Discussion
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how find a marriage counselor? I'm found out my insurance does not necessarily cover marriage counseling. I'm going to call the numbers given to me for the professionals. They still might do couples therapy.
  15. Going Through Divorce or Separation
    I dated my husband 3 years before we finally tied the knot. Now being married for 7 years i recently found out he has same sex attractions. I discovered that he enjoys straight and homosexual porno, frequently visits strip clubs and sex shops and he has surfed online looking for male escorts. He...
  16. General Relationship Discussion
    I'm so sad right now. I've been trying to be strong but my heart hurts. I'll try to spare those who read this a wall of text. me (32f) and my bf(36m) have been going out for 4 years. Things sorta came to a crossroads last week when we had a huge blow out of an argument. It comes down to...
  17. General Relationship Discussion
    I need advice about a marriage guidance counsellor. The one that I am seeing claims to have an 85% success rate (which for me is the first sign that he is around the bend - he would be on the front cover of Time magazine if he had those numbers.) I would take him at his word about his success...
  18. General Relationship Discussion
    Last Sunday (a week ago) my husband came home and said he was unhappy in our marriage. Background: We have been together for almost 8 years. We just got married in June. Things have been good-or so I thought. He was moody since September, and claimed it was just work stress when I asked him...
  19. Considering Divorce or Separation
    I have been married 23 years. We have both been unhappy for alot of the marriage. After 12 years she came to me and we almost separated, but worked it out. I was unhappy as well, but when she came to me, I begged to try and we did. It was not long before I was unhappy but did not say...
