    Is This Normal?

    Lately I've been feeling less attracted to my husband. I don't really know why except that he's been doing some things that are aggravating and frankly turn me off. I was trying to get a show we watch onto a thumb drive and I found his porn. I know he watches it, and it was only two videos on the hard drive, but one of them was of a threesome and God knows what the other one was. We briefly...

    For the last 12 months I've been on this journey of turning my life around.  My wife left and I began to pick up the pieces and seek counseling for depression and some really messed up psychology.The journey has been like driving a car down a freeway and the steering wheel keeps coming off in my hands.  I get a reprieve from the depression for a while until the steering wheel comes off and I...

    Hi, I had a child with a stranger in 2015. We didnt work out at all and I became a single parent at 24. Now, 2 years later, I have done the custody thing and we do a long distance time sharing plan. I however met a guy when my son was only three months old. I really liked him so I went out a couple times. He however had a second life, and I was not his only. I thought I could deal with this since...

    Emotional/verbal abuse

    I have been with my boyfriend for over 4 years. We have lived together for most of this time, but always with roommates. About a month ago we finally moved into an apartment by ourselves. My boyfriend has a lot of emotional baggage from his childhood and I try to be sympathetic. He has told me that as mean as he is to me he is 10 times harder on himself. I just don't know if I can take him taking...

    Okay so, I need some advice with my new boyfriend. I'm 27 and he's 29, we've been together for about 4 months.For a bit of background, I got out of a 6 year relationship last year and he has had a handful of short term relationships except for a girl he dated for 3 years and ended when he was 21.

    Confused

    I am not sure what to do in this situation.  My son and husband (his step-father)had an altercation, a physical one.  I do not condone what happened on any level.  My son has decided he hates my husband and doesn't feel safe in his home.  The altercation happened about a month and a half ago.  My husband apologized and my son "forgave"him.  I voiced my concern and told my husband his...

    Quick background on myself since I'm new here. Hate being the "new kid". I'm Jennifer I am 23. I was in a long term relationship with a guy I was head over heels in love with, but it was obvious he wasnt. He was extremely abusive, but i was blind to it for years. Any ways, after almost 8 years I finally got myself out of it. That was a year ago, I'm still so broken. I want a real relationship,...

    I need some advice

    So I asked my boyfriend of almost 3 years if he could take my sister, my cousin, and I to the nail salon. He said no. I asked why and he said because he's already doing two errands for me tomorrow. Well apparently he thinks my orthodontist appointment and my counseling appointment are errands. Now he rarely says no. But when he does, he is just so mean about it. And I get mad and hurt. He has...
