In response to a confession. I will not get tested. I don't need to. I know my husband, you don't. He isn't overcompensating for anything, he genuinely loves me and cares for me and respects his/our marriage. Believe it or not, my DH is actually a good man, husband, father, son, friend, employee etc. He doesn't have social media, reads the real newspaper, rarely watches tv, reads to our children, is funny and likes to stay home. I shouldn't have to defend my husband to you, but you need to know, not everyone out here is cheating. I wonder how many people are telling your husband (or ex?) or current bf or new DH to get tested knowing you are a cheater. Also, don't conclude about anything or anyone's marriage "based on the internet".

My husband and I made out yesterday before we had sex, and holy crap. We really hadn't done that (had just a make-out session) in years and I don't know why we ever stopped. It was almost more intimate than the actual sex.

In response to a confession. Yeah, I was a piece of shit at that time in my life. I got help through therapy and medication for the root problems I was coping with through adultery. I guess I did it to overcompensate. Sorry to rain on her parade but I don't want anyone to go through what I put my DH through, being blindsided. It's likely her DH isn't cheating but I think, based on the internet, that a lot of people overcompensate with love when they are. And maybe she should get tested.

If my DH killed my pet I wouldn't care how much (or not!) money I had, I'd be outta there. Same with hitting me. Calling me fat, it would definitely be hurtful, but honestly, IDK if I would outright call that grounds for leaving him. Money or not, I wouldn't let that keep me, or stop me from going if I needed to.

In response to a confession. Huh, interesting. I wonder if the dynamic between my DH and I will change at all once I start making closer to what he does. I, like you, am going back to school and didn't make much money this year but any time I want to purchase something big, I consult with him first. He also has said in the past that he sometimes thinks the only reason I'm still married to him is because of how much money he earns. I wonder if things will change when he knows I could just up and leave him at any time.

Dh and I have been having interesting conversations lately about how money can change the power dynamic in a relationship. He makes a lot of money. I've been a full time student for two years and last year I made $7,000. He's always made a lot lot lot more than me and even when I start my career in September as a surgical nurse he still will, but I will finally be making a high living wage. Like, if say, he did something awful like hit me or called me fat or killed one of my pets, I could leave without a backwards glance without sacrificing my standard of living. I've always felt like he thinks he gets to make the executive decisions and has veto power when it comes to financial decisions. I stand my ground and don't let him second guess me, but I wonder if he'll quit even trying to do that when he knows that I'm more financially involved? I ask him and he says no, he'll always be a micromanager, but hmmm, I wonder.

I have some good friends who are getting divorced. They didn't want too, but they just don't want the same thing in a marriage anymore. I feel really sorry for both of them. However... I spent the weekend chatting with the wife, who is 29 years old and has never had to work (and has no kids). She is complaining that she will 'only' get 5k a month in support, and then 'only' for 4 years. I had to change the subject, because telling her how I support my entire family on less that that would probably not be helpful to her. At least, not the way I was going to say it! I know this is an expensive area to live in, but 60k a year will go far.

In response to a confession. OH wow? he's cheating? Thanks for letting me know! Us women on the internet that don't know one another have to stick together! Glad you found out and told me!! **runs to the divorce lawyer**. Nice try. My DH is a lot of things, but a cheater he is not. Take YOUR cheating ass bullshit elsewhere because I ain't having it. BTW, the comment did not rain on my parade. She only made herself look stupid.

Last week DH and I invited BFF, her DH, and their dog to spend two nights with us while their house was being de-molded. At 2:00 this morning a huge thunderstorm knocked power out for over 40,000 homes. I have severe sleep apnea and can't sleep without a CPAP, which needs electricity. It was 103 degrees today, and at 3 pm I posted I was looking for a hotel, but everything within 50 miles was full. Did my BFF (who never lost power) or any of my local friends or family offer to take us in for the night? HELL NO! And I'm so damned mad right now that I've given myself a migraine. I told DH that everyone I know is gonna see a big change in me because I am DONE helping everyone else. After 16 hours and 45 minutes, our power just came on! And I'm still pissed!
