  1. Newly-wed & taken for granted by husband

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    I'm a newly-wed. My husband and I got married less than a year after meeting without really knowing much about each other. It was a marriage set up by our parents to which we both wholly agreed to. I did and at least, that what my husband tells me. We're both in our 20s. We've now been married...
  2. I'm not sure I still like my husband

    General Relationship Discussion
    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...
  3. Nearly 40 years of marriage....

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    But I am in love with another woman. I know not unique. Likely boring for this group But truly stressful for me! I am calm and uneventful in my life and at the top of my career in a stressful profession. She is Type A (is there AAA?) and at the top of her also stressful career. She travels...

    General Relationship Discussion
    My wife and I have been married for 4 years now. We have a 2y/o and one on the way. And we only have them because somehow by the grace of anything that is holy.

    Sex in Marriage
    Hello It may sound like a common question but is there a way to figure for sure if my husband is gay or bi? Going by some discussions ive read, i do see some signs. He has gay friends. We've been married only a few months and he is never really interested in sex. Ive never seen him check out...

  7. Am i a bad husband or is time to end it?

    We have been married 3 years, the first year for any normal couple would have been the end. There is no love or romance. After constantly hearing her bad mouth me to her friends might after night I was at my wits end. I hid away giving her all the space in the world. We hadent been close or...

  9. But what about the child???? Dilemma!

    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...
  10. Online-cheated on my husband

    Coping with Infidelity
    I online-cheated on my husband from 7/2007 until he found out in 4/2008. I contacted someone I've had contact with before I got married and have been emailing/chatting/sending inappropriate photo. I didn't feel anything for the person I cheated with but I wanted the attention because it made me...

    My husband and I were deeply in love and he treated me like an absolute princess. Then, a month before our wedding, he 'saw' and 'heard' me in the shower with a 60-year old man at a place we were staying!!!! (I was 20!) Needless to say, it could not be more untrue, but no amount of persuasion of...

    I've been friends with my newlywed husband of 11 years, of which, 8 of them were platonic. He and I got together 3 years ago, and he left me because of my family and not being over another woman who had cheated on him. I was devastated; I was so in love with him. He and I remained distant...
  13. Should I give him another chance?

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    My husband and I have been together for 3 years, and lived together for 2 of those. We've only been married for the last year. We've only had problems for the last year. He just doesn't treat me well anymore. At worst he's angry and explosive about things that are not my fault; at best, he's...
