An open marriage made me believe in monogamy.
I realized then that I had to find the strength to live without my husband. That was the day I realized that there was life outside of my house and inside of it, too.
How your ex behaves after divorce when finding new love may infuriate you. But the harsh truth is that your opinion doesn't matter. Here's how to move on so you can cooperate your co-parenting together.
What’s the first step in exploring S&M? Change the way you think. What exactly constitutes as S&M? Are you comfortable enough in your sexual relationship to try it? Ky Henderson clears up misconceptions and speaks to couples who agree that it is a new way to build trust and explore ways to potentially liven up a “vanilla” sex life.
It started with a flirty dance while out with friends. It turned into a torrid year-long affair that her husband never knew about. One writer shares her tale of infidelity and how, against all odds, adultery put her on the path back to her husband. "I heard the warning voice in my head reminding me that this was dangerous territory: however alone I might feel, I was, in fact, married. And then, for the first time in 10 years, I silenced it. As Alex placed his hands on my hips, I knew with absolute clarity that I was about to have an affair. I knew it was a decision that could unravel even the strongest of unions. I never could have guessed that it would save mine."
I was 17 and Fred was 24 when we first met. What began as puppy love grew into a lifelong bond and made me believe in undying love. There were a few times when I second-guessed my decision to marry someone else, but our dynamic made it undeniable: We were meant to be in love with each other, but that didn't necessarily mean we belonged together.
Now, we're in surgery mode and where once a little "nip/tuck" was considered an interesting possibility for the person who desired physical change, it's presently part of a culture that equates body modification with self-esteem. I am talking about vaginal surgery, as in labiaplasty, hymenoplasty and vaginoplasty — all procedures designed to enhance the appearance and feel of the vagina. What bothers me about the idea of vaginal surgery (when it's done for aesthetic reasons as opposed to medical) is that it just seems to provide yet another avenue for women to believe they're less than perfect as is.
Hubby in heaven, it will be eight years this Monday since the day you left this world. I used to imagine how would the pain feel years from the day you left. Remember you told me it would happen and that it would be ok because you would no longer be here? You were so right about so many things. But the most change took place within me.
I live in Orlando. He lives in Australia. At any given moment, there are 9,349 miles (plus, one hell of an expensive airplane ticket) separating me from my boyfriend. Let me be clear, this man is the greatest love of my life. He's on my mind and in my heart constantly, but I only see him four times a year for 2-week visits, and you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.
Cynthia's marital rape nightmare began around 1996. For the first year of her marriage Cynthia of New Hampshire had no problems with her husband. He was prone to angry fits, but nothing seemed overly outside the norm. When the two had an argument in their second year of marriage her ex-husband hit her, and Cynthia left.
When my boyfriend told me, just shy of our one-year anniversary, that he didn't want a girlfriend anymore, I almost choked on my savory pork belly dish and $12 cocktail. My girlfriends rose to the occasion, but it was the advice of a married, middle-aged dude that changed the course of my fate. He said that if I wanted to get different results, I had to change my behavior, trust him implicitly and do exactly as he said. Who was he to tell me who I am and how to date? His words were harsh. He was aggressive, obnoxious, cocky. And he was right.
It's time to get acquainted with the little egg made of jade (yes, the stone) that's putting a pleasurable new twist on the age-old concept of getting laid.
Men, I get it. You're good guys and you want to do the right thing. But I'm not in need of having my scars kissed, licked, worshiped or healed by your magic touch. I'm not broken. I don't need fixing. I've come to terms with my chest scars — they're no big deal to me anymore. It's time to start paying attention to the parts of me that actually feel.
