  1. Cheating with a girl Half His Age

    Coping with Infidelity
    I am Totallysad, and I first wrote a post here in 2015 sharing my experiences after a 16 year marriage with my husband in which I went through numerous instances of finding him cheating on me, physical abuse and emotional trauma. Every single response to my post asked me to seek counselling for...

  3. Emotional abuse

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    I've been married for 15 years, kids the whole bang shoot, but I have a problem...or at least I think I do. I'm too scared to voice my opinion, or ask to do something trivial like "Can I go fetch our son and take him to his GF" or, "The boys wanted to invite friends over for a sleep-over" or...

  6. I'm so lonely

    The Ladies' Lounge
    I've been starved for an emotional connection with my husband for almost our entire marriage, but I just realized what "my problem" is almost 3 years ago. Since then, I've read every book, talked to every friend, been to 3 marriage counselors, a priest and a marriage encounter, and I feel like...
  7. Impossible to start over

    New Member Forum - Introduce Yourself!
    About six weeks ago I had to get an 18 month restraining order against my husband, who pulled my down to the ground in what was the final straw of living with his violent rages issues (that was the first time he actually hit me, but he often threatened to, and came close to it many times in the...

    General Relationship Discussion

My husband and I, both Christians, have been married for just a few months. We started dating about 1 1/2 years ago. Once our relationship began to get serious, he...
  9. How to Separate with love

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    I've been married for 16+ years, most of those years happy with a loving man that was a bit emotionally unavailable. I spend a lot of time nurturing his needs & reassuring him of my love which I thought was being attentive. About 4 years ago he went through this really deep dark depression &...
  10. No Love Left

    General Relationship Discussion
    I've been married for 22 years. I never worked for the first 18 years and he didn't let me spend any money. What took place was if I bought something for myself, he would always get angry and say, "what did you buy that for? You didn't need that, did you? You're gonna pay me back for that...
  11. I've Checked Out

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    I've been married to a very kind person for almost 7 years. He's a great person, very generous, and has a huge heart. But when we're at home (away from everyone), he turns into a person that I did not really know before we got married. See, he has anger issues and he gets frustrated often. So...

  13. Psychiatrist father said some weird shı†

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    When I was about 14 or 15 my father, a board certified psychiatrist/neurologist, said that I suffered an Oedipal complex. I knew what an Oedipal complex was because Freudian psychology was in the media in the early 70s. But he had to spell it out. "It means you want to murder your father so...

  16. I finally told him to move out. Just making sure.

    The Ladies' Lounge
    Let me tell you where I fail first: I'm not very good socially. I'm not too bad, but not easy at times. I am terse and easily frustrated when things muddle my ability to organize my home or string two thoughts together. My five little ones take some of the credit for that. ;D I also think like a...

  18. Constant threats of divorce are growing old. Please help.

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    My husband throws out the threat of divorce literally every time we argue, which is about once every 4-6 weeks. He also tells me that he doesn't want me, can't stand to be around me, doesn't love me, etc. I recognize that he uses his words as a control tactic to put me "in my place," and I know...

  20. Moved abroad to be with him, all falling apart less than 2 years later

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    Marriage. Emotional abuse. A foreign country. Counseling. It's messy.The background is so tangled, I don't know if this will make sense as I cut a lot of stuff out. The bottom line is after reconnecting four years after we originally met, I moved to South America to live with my now-husband...
