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.

I started Talk About Marriage because I know that there are a ton of people out there looking for help and support in their relationships. Talk About Marriage provides a unique opportunity for people to anonymously post and provide feedback to others about their relationships. There is no cost for using this website; it is entirely supported by advertising and it's parent site, The Family & Marriage Counseling Directory.

The Family & Marriage Counseling Directory has been one of the top sites in the search engines for "Marriage Counseling" and "Family Counseling" since 2003. Because of this, I am aware of the masses of people that are searching for help on the internet. Based on some rough statistics, I can estimate that about a half million visitors came to the site this past year.

Talk About Marriage is designed to be a community forum for those interested in talking to others about their relationships, but perhaps not ready to take the extra step to get professional help. Be aware that there are professionals available for relationship help all around the world, and The Family & Marriage Counseling Directory is just a small sample of therapists who have chosen to advertise.

The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy has a service called Therapist Locator, which lists trained marriage and family therapists in the US, Canada, and Overseas.

The American Psychological Association also has a referral service called the APA Help Center.

In addition, the Open Directory Project has a category full of other mental health counseling directories. And there are advertisers on this site who provide professional services as well.

As you can see, I am partial to professional help. One reason being, that I have a post-graduate degree in Social Work, and I believe it to be a worthy field with impeccable values. The other reason I am partial to professional help, is that I've done my own work in different forms of therapy for many years, and I've found it to be an incredible life-enriching process that has helped me to become a good husband and father. Therapy has a way of helping me see things I wouldn't normally see, and learn things about myself that I might never have learned.

Of course, I've heard all of the horror stories about therapists out there who "did this" or "said that!" I'm very fortunate that the one's I've spent time with have been well-trained and ethical. People should be aware that every state has licensing bodies who are there to deal with unethical behavior, and it is our duty to report unethical conduct.

That brings me back to this forum . Please read our posting guidelines. This forum is open to the general public, and there is no guarantee about what anyone here might say. Please be respectful of others, regardless of how different your views are.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Good Morning. I have lots of questions and I am not sure where to begin.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hi
I wanted to find a site where I could make friends so I could get my mind off of my marriage. This has just been a bad year so far & I don't have a lot of friends due to where I live.

Thanks
Heidi

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hello all, I am new to this fourm and hopping to learned some new info on marriage. Been married for 9 years, 14 years together ( Yes, high school sweethearts) We have 3 kids, 10 yr, 5 yr, and 8 mo, and 4 dogs, two snakes, and a lizard.
My wife (Nikki) and I (Steve BTW) have our ups and downs. We face financial issues, health issues, communication problems (mostly on my side), and disagreements, but we do have our happy times and work things out. A typical marriage. I love my wife more than I did the first year we been together. I try to do everything to help her out, keep her happy and meet her needs. Our sex has greatly improved with the additional used of toys for her and finally got her to have an orgasm by trial and error. Hehehe.
In all, we are very happy to have each other.

Unhappy Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Hi everyone

I am new to all this and just wanted to talk to others and get some advice after my husband of 21 years announced he wants to separate.

He said he doesn't feel the same about me anymore. This was 6 weeks ago and he is still living in the house and still sleeping in my bed, but says he wont change his mind and there is no second chance. I am so overwhelmed by my emotions I don't know where to turn.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

Mumof2, welcome!

You may wish to start a new thread for your questions and concerns rather than the "welcome" thread. It's ok to get your initial information out but a discussion would probably be better in it's own thread.

You'll definately get a lot of responses! That's what we're all here for...

It ain't illegal until you're caught!

Hi! I'm new to this so hope I'm answering in the right spot. I've been married 19 years on July 5th and together for 20 years. These last few months have been very trying so I hope I can get the help I need to keep our marriage going.

Re: Welcome to Talk About Marriage

I am not sure what to do.. My Boyfriend and I want to get married.. I thought things were going great but recently found out he has been talking to other women on the internet.. and I am unsure if he has actually met anyone or not.. I have a feeling he has.. He swears to me he has not.. He has admitted he has a problem w/ this but tells he will stop.. for some reason I believe that if this is addiction you cant just stop.. I am not sure what to do.. part of me wants to move out and leave him.. I guess because he knew that I had trust issues and it was a HUGE deal to me.. Any advice
