    I don't seem to enjoy mu husband's company anymore and I don't really think he cares. - We can't hold a conversation without him making jokes about everything. Everything. I do have a sense of humor but sometimes I'd like to be able to talk about important subjects without him dodging it by...

  8. Boring, normal, ordinary and still painful

    General Relationship Discussion
    There is nothing happening in my marriage that sent me here (after a lot of lurking and reading common experiences) that is not happening to thousands of couples all over the world. At least, that's what I'm guessing based on what I'm reading. Having said that, I sure could use some advice. And...
