  1. Experience with a SO who can't handle money

    Financial Problems in Marriage
    I see other posts about people hitting a wall with finances because their spouse or SO can't manage money. I registered specifically to share my experiences on this because maybe someone will find it helpful. It drives me up the wall when people spew "Divorce him/her" right off the bat. I've...
  2. Roleplaying?

    The Ladies' Lounge
    So for awhile now I've had a fantasy I wanted to try where my husband and I meet up somewhere pretending that we don't know each other and eventually hook up. I recently got into a bit of trouble but I still want to try this. Due to the situation I put myself in, I think that if we start this...

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    My husband and I have been married for over 6 years and have 3 kids. We have had our fair share of ups and downs but one thing that I feel that is taking a huge toll on me is our families. He has a large family of 7 siblings and I have 5 siblings and live near my dad and step mom. I am in...
  4. Which physical attrubutes do you find attractive in a woman

    The Men's Clubhouse
    :scratchhead: Hi All, Posting here hoping for a male perspective on this but first a little bit of back story. My husband and I have recently separated and when I asked him why he wasn't willing to try counselling his response is that I am no longer attractive to him, physically, and no...

    Life After Divorce
    I have been separated from my ex for over three years now. I have a healthy new relationship with a man I am proud to say is a positive influence on my daughters (5yrs old) life.

  6. Sibling Sexual Relationship, PLEASE HELP!

    Physical & Mental Health Issues
    I created this account for this issue, I have no one to turn to because well, it's his deepest darkest secret. Basically four years into courtship my husband told me that as a child he had "relations" with his sister. At first I didn't take him seriously because he has previously mentioned it...
  7. Why are my relatives doing this to me?

    General Relationship Discussion
    I get easily upset when some of my relatives say that Russians are brutal descendants of Gengis Khan who supported Stalin (I am a Russian married to an American). They have no problem raising this issue even at family Christmas dinners. My husband thinks it's OK and calls me confrontational...
  8. Take a seat, this is about to get heavy. Wife cheated.

    Coping with Infidelity
    Looking for some much needed guidance and advice… My wife and I have been married for almost 2.5 years now. We started out as friends in college and after about a year began dating. We dated for about 4 years before we got married. About a year before we graduated college we began to really...

  10. Wife will not open up or discuss things

    General Relationship Discussion
    I am confused and not sure how to address this---Wife and I have been married for ~10 years and have two children together. She is a good person, good mom, has lots of nice friends. I love her and have no problem expressing myself to her, but rarely does she express herself to me. I try to...
  11. Daily Sex v. Monthly Sex- too big of a gap

    Sex in Marriage
    Wife prefers monthly sex to sex every 6 weeks. I would prefer daily sex. My research suggests that neither of us is "abnormal" and that any amount of sex between a couple is the right amount if the couple agrees on it. We are married with children. Marriage is eleven plus years in. Seems silly...
