My wife and I have demanding jobs neither of us is crazy about. I sell insurance; she manages a hairdressing salon for a large company.
My husband went to his 45th class reunion a state away and hooked up with a classmate.
My husband is more interested in hanging out with his friends than caring about our 11-year-old daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome.
In the last presidential election, I had a friend who voted differently than I did. We didn’t try to persuade each other to vote “our” way, but I did share on social media some opinions about people who had taken some controversial positions.
I am a stay-at-home mom to three wonderful little girls. I appreciate my husband working so I can do this, but I’m very lonely. I have no real friends.
My parents were separated for four years while I was in high school and college.
My mother moved in with my sister in California around 1993.
I am extremely upset. My son got married a year ago.
I have been seeing a woman for a year, and everything seemed pretty sweet.
I am 26. My mom recently got my boyfriend sent to jail. We met six months ago.
