He...

  4. Going to Therapy, experiencing a lot

    Physical & Mental Health Issues
    So given that I'm going through a separation and it's first time for a lot of things including living by myself, I find myself overanalyzing what I have talked about with the therapist and questioning if my marriage was dysfunctional, how it got there and why couldn't we both work on it. I...
  5. Married for 19 months…and still no intercourse

    Sex in Marriage
    Yes, you read that correctly. 19 months. It’s not the way we imagined married life. But it’s the reality we’re facing. My wife and I were both virgins when we married back in July of 2012. And technically, I guess we’re still virgins. In the past 19 months there has been only one attempt to...
  6. Am I in a verbally abusive relationship? Do I need to get out?

    General Relationship Discussion
    I am trying to decide if my husband is verbally abusive or if I am overreacting due to abuse and severe bullying which occured during my own childhood.

  10. Is this the end?

    Going Through Divorce or Separation
    Hello all to anyone who is willing to read, I fear that my marriage may be at the very end and not sure how it's possible to repair. I will try to be as abbreviated as possible, but a lot of details will probably create a better perspective: (August 2009) My wife and I had been dating for 8...
