    Considering Divorce or Separation
    My wife and I have been married 7 years and together for over 10. To say our relationship has had issues is an understatement. Don’t get me wrong though we’ve had some great and amazing times. Before we were married I had some skeletons I didn’t deal with and I ended up cheating on my wife...

  15. Texting Affair

    Coping with Infidelity
    While my situation is not overtly unique and I feel as if I am merely posting what has been posted hundreds of times before.
