  1. love is forgiveness

    The Men's Clubhouse
    It's authentic. I found my gf cheated on me by her text message. At first, I found during that time she looked especially panicked when the phone message rings, and she set a complicated password for her iPhone which is a secret to me. Once she told me her password but when I read her message, I...
  2. Depression and infdelity

    Coping with Infidelity
    I will try to keep it short as poss... My husband suffers from quite severe recurrent depression which we have discovered is worse in winter (SAD). The last two winters have been destroyed for us. The winter before last he had a breakdown and lost the ability to cope with work/kids, etc. Over...
  3. Is my man just scamming me for babysitting?

    General Relationship Discussion
    I met him on normal, legit terms. We dated. We moved a little fast but both feel a little older and wiser after two divorces and children in our custody. When you know exactly what you want after years of experience, I think it's ok to move a little faster than would a single twenty-something...
  4. Buy my House ...Again!

    Life After Divorce
    The first time I bought my house I didnt have the full input into the situation. I was being calm and collected (?) as my ex dismantled my family and she pretty much forced me to buy the house. I bought it because I really like this house. Its quirky Post and beam modern with wrap around...
  5. The most important piece of advice you were given after you found out?

    Life After Divorce
    So when she announced I was lost in the woods for a time. I didn’t know about TAM and didn’t have the faintest clue where to go or what to do. Eventually I limped the thing out through a weird combination of instinct and stubbornness. I’m still trying to figure out if there was one specific...
  6. Celebrating 3 years of steadily improving life! :)

    Life After Divorce
    So here it is...three years ago today, the judge banged a gavel and ended my marriage. It was not my choice. Oddly enough the sun came up the next day just like it always did.:) Funny that. Little by little my life began to improve. I got the things that I wanted and worked on myself to be a...
  7. "Almost" Cheating...??

    General Relationship Discussion
    Cutting to the chase, my husband has a number of problems which equal one huge problem for me; 1.) Contacting, flirting and sexual reminiscing with numerous ex-girlfriends on-line. 2.) Visiting Chat-Sex rooms frequently for anonymous visual and audio sexual encounters. 3.) Skyping with women...
  8. Possible sex addiction of my husband - resources needed

    Relationships and Addiction
    I am wondering if it is possible my husband is addicted to sex. He has a very high sex drive, and the past year has been almost impossible for me. Last year he had an affair, contacted and went to a happy massage place (or maybe a prostitute, I do not know), and was actively looking for more...

    The Men's Clubhouse
    Hi everyone - I'm a 26 year old bloke, been in a relationship with my fiancee for two and half years now. We're getting married in March. I've been lurking and absorbing as much as possible from here for the last month or so, reading a couple of the Required Reading books from the Man Up/ Nice...
  10. Bullied into emotional affair? Our story

    Coping with Infidelity
    Jay got trapped and put into a situation he never wanted to be in. Jay (27) and his wife Lori (26) were crazy about each other and always have been. They had worked together at several businesses over the years and it was never a problem until Millie was hired. Within two weeks his world was...
  11. Could we still make it as a couple... If so how to start?

    General Relationship Discussion
    Firstly, I'm not after advice about being obsessed with an ex or anything like that. I hope. I'm a divorcee with a 5 year old girl and a complicated relationship history. My first marrage fell apart as I was terribly co-dependent and work focused and my ex become highly religious following a...

    I seem to post something in here every time my H and I are having problems, and it's constant! I'll put the situation in a nutshell if possible. H had prev unhealthy marriage, blamed all his character defects and inability to communicate and handle anger on his previous wife. She was...

    I have been in an exclusive relationship for 3 1/2 years. We have lived together the last two years. I have four children by a previous relationship in which he has embraced and treats as if they are his own. Problem is, he has a cocaine addiction that we just can't seem to overcome. I...
  14. Broken beyond years

    Relationships and Addiction
    I am 29 and have been with my husband for almost 11 years, married for 8 1/2. We have two children and its been a long road of emotional roller coaster events. My husband and I met young and used to party a lot when we met. When I became pregnant in 1999, I left that life as he continued. We...
  15. When is enough, enough

    Reconciliation
    I thought I would share something very personal today. The last couple of weeks I’ve found myself in several threads about how long do you go on in an unhappy marriage. When is enough, enough. Not long ago was the first anniversary since I found out about my wife’s emotional affair. A...
