I am in my late 20s and dating a man in his mid-30s whom I am crazy about. We have been dating for a year and are starting to discuss marriage and children. He’s kind, hard-working, gives back to the community, and does everything he can to make me happy.
I’m dating my grammar school and high school sweetheart, “Gary.” We’ve known each other since I was 6.
Give up and move on and you will save yourself, your wife, Jamie and her husband a lot of pain.
I’m a 35-year-old gay man who has been in a serious relationship for five years.
I have been dating “James” for almost a year. Things have been rough for him recently. His depression has led to school attendance issues, but we got through it.
I am married to a great man, but he’s very tight with his money. We found out early in our relationship that we couldn’t have a joint account because it caused so much fighting. We share our bills, but I am broke all the time. I have credit card debt he doesn’t know about.
My “friend” from childhood, “Camille,” has never had my back.
My mother-in-law owns the building my husband and I live in.
My daughter “Scarlet” has a precious 18-month-old baby girl I’ll call Sierra.
I am a 50-year-old woman. I have been married to my husband for 28 years and never cheated.
