Welcome to Talk About Marriage.

Talk About Marriage is a forum to discuss marriage and relationships. Here, we interpret the word "marriage" loosely, recognizing that many different people from different cultures view marriage differently. It is important to be patient and respectful with other members, no matter how different our views are.

Please read our forum guidelines before posting on Talk About Marriage.

If you have a relationship problem that you want feedback on, the best place to start is in the General Relationship Discussion section. Click this link, and click the "New Thread" button at the top left to start a new thread about whatever it is that you want feedback on.

If you have technical difficulties with the website, please post them in the technical difficulties section.

Thanks for visiting.

Thanks for the suggestion Yen. I'm pretty sure I'm going to give it a try. It has been suggested in the past too:

http://talkaboutmarriage.com/suggestion-box/135-new-title-topic.html

My only fear is that people will stop posting if we have live chat, and the posts are important because they help people get feedback from a broader audience. The posts also help others going through similar issues. That's part of the great benefit that a public message board can provide.

A chat room is more private, which is good too. It enables more spontaneous communication between the people involved in the chat.

Moderation would be difficult in a chat room as well. If someone was causing trouble there (inciting others, or using inappropriate language); there would be little I could do to protect our site's visitors.

Those are just some of the issues I have been struggling with recently about it. I need to do some more research to see what kind of chat programs are available. I'm open to testing it out.

The Family & Marriage Counseling Directory (my site that pays the bills and affords this site to run) is undergoing a redesign right now, so that keeps me pretty busy lately. It may be a while before I can get started on the chat thing.

Well I guess I can introduce myself as well. I have been married for over nine years to my 2nd wife. I have been through quite a bit. My relationship in no way is in trouble but any advice on what I did right or to share stories of what I did wrong I am willing to put in my 2 cents.

I am on several forums an Admin to 3, a moderator on 2 and chat on several others as well. I stumbled on this one and it seems like a good community so I joined.

I just wanted to say that I think it is great you started this forum for people who need advice on their marriage. Sometimes it can be hard to open up to a counselor or even a friend about problems that can sometimes be very personal. I feel your forums can be helpful in that you can get some truthful third party advice without leaving your home. Kudos to you Chris and I am glad I found this site! :)

I think thats Great to have a place to discuss many issues and hear multiple takes on the situation. I have always had a pretty high drama Life and tend to always journal to myself so the idea of sharing outloud seems very comforting. glad to have found this place' hope all is well with all!

Hi!

This is a nice forum. I'm going thru a really rough time in my life; I came across this site a few months back. It's great to get unbiased opinions from total strangers sometimes. Many times that's better than talking to friends and family. Also, sometimes I see a post that I can offer advice. Those are usually the post where I see "where I've been". I wish I had found this forum years ago!

Hello everyone,
I am new today and have already been responded to in such a way that gave me hope. Not to mention reading everyone elses issues and responses, (at least the ones i have been able to read so far). Thank you Chris for starting this wonderful support tool!
