In response to a confession. I was pregnant during Mother's Day and was disappointed I didn't get acknowledged at all. I didn't need any gifts, but yeah I think pregnant women deserve to be recognized on Mother's Day. When you realize you're pregnant is when (most) women start changing their habits to best benefit the child. Also wtf did he expect you to do to celebrate Father's Day from the hospital??

Dh and my best friend went to 1 AA meeting. She went home and drank, he didn't drink for 3 or 4 days. Then dh drank Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, Tuesday. :/ They went to AA tonight and found out it was a ladies only meeting. I wonder if they'll ever get sober....

In response to a confession. I am also happy to read these confessions and "me toos" because I feel this way, too. I love living alone. I love being able to do whatever I want whenever I want to. I was coupled up most of my adult life and after being single for the last three years I don't think I will ever cohabitate again.

My DH used to go on the road for a whole month at a time. I must say...I really miss that. We would talk for about an hour a day and I got to sleep as much as I wanted, Then when he came home, we would celebrate with a steak dinner and a movie. I kind of wish it was like that all the time...like I'd only have to see him when I wanted to and got to live alone the rest of the time.

I'm the OP of the above post. i guess we have a non-traditional marriage too. we work separate shifts (me nights, him days) so we only see each other on weekends and for a few hours a day during the week. we aren't tied to the hip or anything. we eat separately most nights and even take separate vacations. i kept my last name as well. i think my issue is thay i hate living with someone. all the alone time in the world doesn't make up for the fact that there's someone else still living here. i lived alone for years and i loved it. this has been the biggest compromise for me thus far. it's hard to explain i guess. but i do love him and i know it's not an economical choice for us. nor would he want to if it were.

In response to a confession. Yeah, there aren't many people I know who have this type of marriage. It's a mix of trust and a crazy high level of emotional honesty. Sometimes my mil will call and ask what her son is doing, and I'm like, I dunno, haven't seen him since last night. Freaks her out, haha. Heaven forbid I not have a GPS on the man.

I like being married because I didn't have to give up anything and have gained so much. I have to make compromises, but nothing to where I feel like I'm a different person because I'm married. I get to do my own thing for the most part. I get my alone time when I need it. I didn't change my last name either.

In response to a confession. Me too! Thanks for posting that, I feel like I'm the only one here who has a somewhat unconventional marriage. We tell each other who we find attractive, and why, and there is no jealousy because we know how much we are attracted to each other too. We don't do the entire 'I'll be home by 6pm, dinner is at 6:30' thing. We cook and eat when we are hungry, and if the other one is around, then we eat together. We occasionally go a day or two without seeing each other awake. I'll go directly from work to yoga, and he'll end up late at a rehearsal, and the next thing we know, it is Wednesday! There isn't much to comprise on - if we want to do different things, we do them. We love spending time together, but time apart is enjoyable too. We have been together for over 20 years, and it is the perfect marriage (so far) for both of us. For those who feel they aren't good at being married - can you and your DH agree to change things to make it more like the marriage you want?

I think dh and I are weird. We're both really independent and honest. If he cheated on me, I wouldn't leave him. I don't own him. I don't own his body. We're monogamous but we tell each other if we're attracted to someone else. We just really, really love each other without all the ownership, attachment stuff. If he wanted to leave me to be with someone else, I would be sad as hell, but I'd live, and would most likely remain friends with him. I haven't ever attached the identity of wife to myself. I'm just me. I'm sure this sounds crazy. It's hard to explain.

Given a second chance at life knowing what I know now? Never get married.
