My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them

How can I get my teen to confide in me
I've been trying to get my son to confide in me about why he is feeling so depressed. He is 15 years old and a very good teen but have no idea why he is so withdrawn and quiet. Please help me I cant bear to see him like this
What do I do?
I'm not sure what to do. Recently separated mom with 2 young girls and pregnant with my 3rd.
I took my son's Ipad away because I'm at my wit's end with him.
He is so addicted and doesn’t want to do anything else. Can anyone tell me whether I did the right thing or am I being too harsh?
It's 3 y I divorced and we have shared custody of 2 lovely kids. Any advice on how to make them understand that divorced parents is ok?
What should I do?
My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
At the age of 19 my father received a call from my girl friend's mother announcing that she was pregnant. Back then that could mean but one thing -- get your suit on, you're getting married. .
Two days before the scheduled event to which a dozen relatives from distant lands had flown in to be in attendance, my father received another call, this one to announce that she wasn't pregnant after all. So what was I to do? Well, I'm guessing you know the answer to that one. Back then when you made your bed you were expected to sleep in it.
We stayed together for 23 years not because we were deeply in love but because we had subconsciously embraced the idea that we were obligated to abide by our families' traditions and expectations. As you might imagine, the embrace of those ideas disappeared shortly after my father died and the younger of our two daughters graduated from college.
Add to myWE:
A half year after our divorce, I decided to start dating again but this time I made a commitment to avoid making the same mistake I'd made as a teenager. It was then that I came to embrace the Six Month Rule: When I encountered a woman I was interested in developing a relationship with, early on I would share my story letting her know that sex was off the table for at least six months. I was looking for a soul mate, not a sex partner. As a side note, each in-turn would smile when I went on to point out that I didn't need a partner to experience an orgasm.
Over the ensuring two years I got to know several women, the last of which I've been with for a quarter of a century. The relationships I not only developed with her but her predecessors were not only enjoyable but extremely enlightening. What's more, I'd be hard pressed to think that those I did spend time getting to know didn't feel the same way. At least once in their lives they knew that they were something more than a sex object.
For me the the path to a fulfilling, long term relationship really revolves around a single question. Do you think that sexual intimacy is the key to to finding the love of your life? If you do, it might be a good idea to talk with a few of your separated and/or divorced acquaintances and ask them what they might have done differently. You might even go so far to ask if they think The Sixth Month Rule might help them avoid repeating the same mistake. .
