I struggle with physical intimacy although we did consummate our marriage. I hate it so much. One night, I’m perfectly fine the next time I can’t stand him.
How can I sleep with a person when I don’t even want to sit with him? I cannot look at him as my husband. I told my mom about this and she said I have to pretend at first, then I will get used to it.
I married my husband a couple of months ago, and I am now pregnant. Since day one, my mother-in-law has been trying to control me according to her wishes.
Soon after the marriage, we started arguing a lot. Our views don’t match and our families are totally the opposite regarding many things.
My impression was that he was good, but sometimes he seems selfish and cold; like on our honeymoon. He was constantly on his phone/laptop.
shall I continue my marriage with a girl who was involved with a guy for 5 years? She should have told me the truth before getting married!
We attempted intercourse. It was horribly painful for me and out of pain, I asked him to stop. He did and said we’d try again sometime else. It’s been 11 months since this happened and my husband has not touched me again.
I foolishly joked that I might not be enough for her and she may need someone else. It was an inappropriate joke but, in my opinion, she has overreacted by crying and saying I have hurt her.
I have lived all my life in California, therefore I am so used to this peaceful environment. However, when I got married, I had to move to NY with my Husband. The problem is that I am so attached to CA where I have my life and friends and family, whereas in NY I have only my husband.Pages: 1 2
