Top 10 Signs You are Stuck in a Bad Marriage

1.    Your spouse arrives home two hours late. You are not mad or relieved. Rather, you are disappointed. You’d hoped he or she wouldn’t come home at all.

2.    You fantasize about discovering your spouse cheating. That way you won’t feel guilty about asking for a divorce.

3.    You are having an emotional affair with a member of the opposite sex.

4.    You gripe about your spouse to a member of the opposite sex, who gripes about his/her spouse to you.

5.    You don’t remember the last time you had sex, and you’d like to keep it that way.

6.    If you won a free vacation for two to Fiji, you’d take your mother with you instead of your spouse.

7.    You stay up late at night watching Judge Judy reruns so your spouse will definitely be asleep by the time you crawl into bed.

8.    You have to drink two glasses of wine before you can bring yourself to small talk with your spouse.

9.    If you won the lottery, you’re not sure whether or not you would tell your spouse. You might just take the money and run.

10.    You can’t remember why you got married. You suspect you might have been brain washed.

    8 of 10. I envy a friend who has a long distance relationship. They only have to see each other on weekends.

    I have a duty to my kids to be there for them. Can’t. Leave them with such a negative person. But once they can make it, I be damn if I spend another minute with her.

    I really do love the person I married, but we don’t get along, and things get worse even though I keep hoping they’ll improve. I can’t be myself around her like I could at the start of the relationship, and have gotten to the point where I don’t care if we’re intimate anymore. The problem: She was nowhere else to go. No family that can take her in. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a living hell with no escape.

    My huabands sex addiction haa turned me into a prude and I can’t stand the sight of him. He’s a gross pervert and I hate myself for staying in denial soooo long about the fake I married. I refused to see the flags and I have paid. Pity for us both
    is all I have left, no hope, no future. 58 years old married 25 years next Monday.

    Why do people really stay and waste their life. I care about someone in a really bad arranged marriage. He is miserable, no sex, no companionship at all. He says he stays because of his religion and children. But he is very unhappy. I don\’t get why people waste their and their spouses lives?

    I really wasted my life for witch I hate myself for, but is to late for me. Maybe if some else reads this they will take heart and leave there bad marriage. I’m 67 and don’t really care any more my life is over.
    My marriage went down hill the day after our wedding. We did have sex once which was cumbersome because we were both virgins. I wrote that off and figured it will change in time. Was I wrong because my husband told me that sex was disgusting, smelly, gross, had no meaning, and couldn’t believe that two people actually did this to each other. He said he has chosen to not ever let that it happen again, meaning he never wanted sex again with me or any one else. And that he was moving to the basement and he didn’t want to be bothered by me or any one else and also he was going on the night shift so he didn’t have to sleep with me. I can’t tell you how upset I was, my blood boiled, I screamed and hollered till I was horse. But it made no difference to him, all he said was go hell leave me alone and never talk to me. That was 47 years ago and its still going on, after all these years you would think things would heal. In actuality I’ve been with out sex and not ever married. But I’ve had lots of friends but never had a man love or take care of me. No love life, no kids or grand kids those are the things I wanted. He never had any friends nor was he gay or have some sexy little whore on the side, he just worked and stayed away from me and everybody.
    A word to the wise including those who may not the wisest folks get help, or leave the marriage. There is some body out there for everyone, you may have to work at it. If you don’t succeed keep trying. All men are kind a different, they are not like us gals, they are complicated and don’t understand us. Again if your marriage is in the shiter get help or get out before its to late and all your hopes and dreams are destroyed. Don’t ever follow the misery I’ve been through, its not worth it.

    I can’t believe I’ve wasted 12 yrs of my life w this man We have a son with severe autism 10 yrs old and he’s used my past against me to make me afraid to control me and I guess its my own fault I just need someone to guarantee I won’t lose my son and show me the way out Please help! No family.

    My husband is about as exciting as watching paint dry. I still love him but he has this nonchalant attitude about everything except stocks and his job. He doesn’t listen anymore and frankly I’m tired of trying to make him. Oh and every time I bring up the issues we are having he brushes them under the rug. That rug is now 30 ft high off of the floor with issues. I should have listened to my younger self and never said I do.

    I got stuck 2weeks into my relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend… I didn’t even know we were boyfriend and girlfriend …. I thought we were just dating … Then I got slapped with “meet the family” scenario and it all went down hill from there… So your his girlfriend
    Uh… Yeah
    Next thing you know his family emotionally pushes me to get married after a year of dating and here I am banging my head into a wall asking god why
    I could of been better elsewhere

    I knew she was jealous of my son and any one else in my life. when we met and hoped she would get over it . She thinks she is a doctor and has attempted to re-prescribe medication. I am constantly scrutinized. I have not had sex in over 5 years. I just want out, I want to go back to the south where I am from
