I am a mother of two and have gone on strike one day when they neglected to their chores. I decided NOT to do their laundry, they were to do it themselves. And quite frankly, I dont regret it. They learned responsibility. And just for the record, I havent done their laundry since then, theyve been doing it all this time : )View Thread
I feel that your son should stop entertaining her. He keeps calling you ranting and raving and its probably in front of her because thats what she wants. In the end, he keeps apologizing after he hears your side..why? if he's soo sure your not the one making up the story then why go thru all that trouble of fighting with you to get the same end result?.. Maybe you, your son and that DIL of yours need to sit down together and get this done and over with. Good luck View Thread
Im praying she reads this and really considers leaving for her kids sake. Its wonderful knowing that out of something bad something good came out of it..by leaving such a negative environment you were rewarded with something positive!!View Thread
as a mother I couldnt see myself staying with someone b/c of divorce or what anyone has to say. I left my husband after 16 yrs because he got into drugs and I had a daughter and a son. I REFUSED to have my daughter think this is how we deserve to be treated or to tolerate things that are unhealthy.and my son? theres no way, I was going to have him think that thats how a man is suppose to react to things in life or even treat anyone anyway thats negative!!! yes, i wanted my kids to grow up with a mom & dad but c'mon, this isnt tv, this is real life and we have to deal with it the right way, the only ppl that matter are your kids!!! They will NEVER appreciate you for staying with someone so negative and believe me when I tell you, those kids are going to treat you in the same manner as your husband because you are showing them that this is how its suppose to be. Dont let it be too late honey, run with your kids. Have faith in God, he'll help you through this. Dont die in this mans hands, where will your kids end up????View Thread
his mothers death is no longer an issue, we were seperated 10 yrs and in those 10 yrs he's gotten help.. as far as us together? we seem to be doing well in other aspects such as..companionship, financial and he is soo happy that his kids, despite being grown, have welcomed him back and things are back to normal...his doctor told him he needs to stop smoking and stop drinking so much coffee because it seems that that is contributing to his problem sexually, but I just cant get into the "mood" with him because I hate to have to deal with him not being able to perform and I can only imagine how he feels..I was an every day sex going female to once or twice a month now but, I can function just fine without it but I wonder for how long?View Thread
I too am in a similar situation, well as far as the sex. My story is unbelievable and when people hear my story they see it as "something out of lifetime channel" Long story short, I met my husband when I was 16 have two AMAZING children (which are now 26 & 21) after 16 years together my husband lost his mother and lost his mind along with it. We were seperated for 10 years and now out of nowhere, we have been placed on the same path and we are currently back together for almost 2 years...here's the prob...while i was seperated, I have learned so much about myself, and have truly enjoyed 'SEX'..in every shape and form I love it!! I have had an amazing 10 years of truly enjoying everything about it without feeling the least bit "insecure" about myself. It has made me the confident woman I am now BUT sex with my husband is BLAH!..He reminds me of someone who has never had sex and doesnt know what the hell he's doing!! I'm guessing its because of my experience before but I'd rather not have sex AT All and just lay in bed and "snugggle" till I fall asleep. I'll be like 3 weeks without sex then try and just get annoyed at his "fumbling" Im not missing the sex with him but I do sure remember the good ol times. my concern is how long will I be able to keep this charade? I cant imagine never again have the kind of passion again. And the stress this will bring into this relationship in the end. A relationship withou sex? without passion? is that even possible? I feel for you dealmein2 I really do.View Thread
