I am a 44 year old married woman with 6 children. My husband and I have struggled through 9 years. Happiness has been lost a long time ago. I am not blaming him for all, however, I have been begging him to listen to me for at least 5 years. I have been distant and feeling trapped. I am a stay home mother who has gotten a college degree. He is a hard worker and good father, our children range from 24-6 year old twins. 4 still living at home. For awhile now, I haven't felt physical attraction . For a long time intimacy has felt like part of my duties. Recently I have fallen in love with a woman. I need help badly.

well any free advice would be much appreciated thankyou for your time : )
In the past I have found the little things are important. What I mean is to take time to spend with your younger ones. They need both of your attention. Sometimes with serious illness or death all the emphasis is placed here; the others are pushed aside. Just 5 or 10 special minutes a day each to read a story or take a walk can do it.
Hello Talk About Marriage fellow members! I just came across the site in search of some material to help my marriage. My name is April - been married for 6 years - and we have a 3 year old little man. He is my world. I am having some issues with my marriage and hope this site allows me to vent, get advice, and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Been on and off this site a few times, never really explained what I am doing here.
Married for 12 years, have a 10 and 5 year old. Our communication is broken... marriage on life support, we carry on like roomates who have common interest for our childen. She has stated on more than one occasion that she has thought about divorce. I am quickly coming to the point where I dont care.
I absolutly have my own faults, but I have never hit her, cheated, etc, but latley I day dream that she does leave me. Magically, with no wish for child/alimony suport as I keep the kids, house, etc. (Its my dream let me have it!) I know that isnt healthy. So I keep looking through these threads for answers , suggestions, makes me feel more normal to know others have problems. Thanks to everyone who puts in so much time helping others with thought provoking responses to their problems.
Warbaby, communication is the biggest problem I have in my marriage. That's why I'm here. It is so hard. I can tell you from my point of view I wish my husband would just sit down with me and tell me how he feels. Good or bad I just want to know. Even if he told me he was through with the marriage it would be better than how we are living now. At least then we could move forward. I hear alot of people say men are not talkers and they keep things bottled up but if my husband would talk to me more I think we could resolve some issues. Maybe you should try having a heart to heart. Couldn't hurt. Don't feel bad though, I have had that thought of my husband magiclly disappearing too...lol I feel bad about it but it does cross my mind. No red tape, just poof... I wish you luck with your wife and family.
Hello, I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself.
I'm a 25 year old female. Me and the fiance have been together 6 years, engaged for 1. We recently moved together and that has brought out some nasty issues we have. So i'm here to learn and offer any advice I can.
Im a 41 year old mother of 3 have been married for 11 years and together for 16 going through a rocky patch and having a having a few issues, this thread looks great cant wait to chat with like minded people .
Hopefully I can figure out how to use this site!! I am having an issue in my marriage and it's one I definitely feel I need feedback on. Unfortunately, I don't have anyone close to me I feel I can talk about this to. So, I decided I will try this direction!! And now I will go post a thread (is that correct?) and start working through the issue with insight from others. Thanks!!
