    Hello TAM community, I'm coming to you out of desperation in need of as much sage advice as I can get... Long-story short, I threatened my wife that I would take full custody of our unborn child.

    Okay, I need to explain myself. My wife is expected to give birth in less than a week. It will be our first. I know I am ignorant to everything, and that I hurt my wife's feelings, but I simply caught off guard in the moment. During sex, she asked me to play with her breasts. I noticed that...

  8. Stretch marks????Or beauty marks... It's in the eye of the beholder

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    I just wanted to share this moment with you because it made me change my thoughts about the way I see myself and how hard I think we are on ourselves sometimes when really the people that love us don't see us in the same light we see our selves. It's with so much love and not with these tainted...

  13. Damned if you do, damned if you don't

    Sex in Marriage
    I think I posted something not altogether unlike this before, although this is more specific to the "problem."

  20. No sex during or after pregnancy (18 months total)

    Sex in Marriage
    Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and noticed similar threads, but hoping this is different enough to warrant its own thread. This might be me just venting, but this has been really tough for me. She just says that she doesn't feel up to sex and that it is not about me. But it's not just...
