I'm trying very hard not to have the "victim" mentality. Nobody is putting a gun to my head and forcing me to stay with an abusive partner. What is wrong with me? Why can't I just buck up and ask him to leave already?
1. I love him
2. We've been together 16 years
3. I know deep...
Thanks to all of you who have been so helpful! I was away for the last week or so, I have a sick pet and it was looking grim, but she's on the mend thankfully. My husband came home and we had a nice long talk. All talk all talk, no action. Same old. I really needed his help with...
I'd like to pose a question, based on what I'm going through.

He said that because of me, he hasn't...
If you are in/were in a relationship...what are/were some of the signs that gave you the notion that you are/were falling out of love with your partner?
I'm in a tough situation where, for a long time, I suspected my husband stopped loving me because he no longer made an...
A question for those in marriages/long-term relationships.
Is me wanting time alone every day a bad thing? I've been married for nearly 16 years and used to dote on my husband. He used to work and I stayed home, kept the house, did the shopping, pet care and when he came home he...
I'm Fay, I'm new here. Been married going on 16 years. Lots of troubles. I feel lonely in my marriage.
Hope to get some good advice, or just some support.
And maybe down the line, be able to give some back.
