HI there, my husband and I have been married for 15 years. These past few years I have noticed a change in him. My husband has always spoke his mind and has never been a pushover. That is what I loved about him. But, now it seems he has gotten worse. It is like the kids and I are walking on eggshells around the house. It has gotten so bad my kids have asked me to leave him and that I shouldn't put up with it.
Some examples are screaming at the kids for eating the last bit of potato chips, he screamed at me for putting bbq sauce on my steak, for taking too long at the store or at a friends house. Also, he leaves his clothes thrown all over the house and then it is my fault when he can't find something. It is like we are afraid to eat and drink anything in our own home. I work too and bring in money. But, since the kids are teenagers it has just gotten worse. It is like he is jealous of the kids. He always complains about them and how much they are costing us. By the way they are his kids!!
I don't want to leave him, but I am not sure how much more I can take.View Thread

Been dating and in committed relationship for about 1.5 years, my significant other wants to start couples therapy as he's concerned with my feelings of jealousy....even when he acknowledges some of his statements would cause him to feel jealous if situation was reversed... I have benefited from individual therapy over the years, but have found that couples therapy ended in divorce more than one once...is this the beginning of the end?View Thread
Our youngest is attending the local university, but is living in the dorm.
There was a time I sincerely questioned whether my marriage would last to this milestone, but things have improved significantly.
My wife's interest in sex is pretty limited these days--for several years, the kids being around "cramping our style" has been her go-to excuse about our dull sex life: I guess we'll find out now if that was a legit thing or just an excuse. (My money is on the latter.)
Anyway, I can tell already that we'll be together more and interactiong more. That's a good thing in my book--I'm not sure what her feelings on that we'll be, as she's more fiercely independent than I am.View Thread
Is it wrong to have lunch with a single guy when you're a married female? We're both into the same sport and like to discuss it. I've mentioned my husband more than once and the guy has never been anything but nice. He has never said or done anything inappropriate and neither have I. There aren't many people who are into the sport where I live/work so finding someone who is is nice.
My husband says it isn't right and I disagree.View Thread

I have been married 15 years to a man 20 years my Senior... and I am NOT very Happy.... in this case age really does matter in the beginning it didn't but now I does have my husband has chronic back pain that he has been dealing with its been 5 year now and it is not been very easy on neither one of us. I know I love him but I don't feel like I'm in love with him his personality has changed since he's been on medicine which I'm sure he's addicted to in this stage of the game.. I continue to live my life the way you fit in very active.... we don't have much in common anymore these days other than both of us liking to travel but when we're at home I go to bed at a decent hour he comes to bed @ 6 in the morning and sleeps until two. Despite his chronic pain he goes out and he works lawn & garden and he's stubborn he doesn't listen to anything that I'm saying the thought of Leaving him though makes me feel really guilty what shou do?View Thread
I have been struggling for awhile now with my trust issues. I don't know where or why they ever started. I have been in relationships before where I have been hurt but I believe it's deeper than that, I've also had a lot of self esteem problems in the past which I think I've gotten better with. The person I'm with now hasn't done anything wrong that I know of but for some reason I have an issue with certain friends. I feel like their closeness is more than what is being said. I believe the feelings the friend has are more than friendly feelings its just the way she acts towards my spouse. Of course I have been told numerous times its nothing and that she has always acted that way. They have been friends for awhile before us. But I can't stand the feeling I get when it comes to this one person. Any time she is involved I get in my feelings and I get the feeling of betrayal and hurt. I don't know what to do or why this keeps happening. I've had similar issues in other relationships in the past, but they ended up actually being what I said they were more than friendly feelings. Please help my relationship is suffering because of my feelings.View Thread
