One of BrotherWord’s faithful readers, @ljackwill3805, forwarded an article regarding soulmates. In the article, @TheMaryGraham talks about how her husband is NOT her soulmate and how as her daughters grow, discover themselves, and eventually seek a husband of their own, she does not want them to become disillusioned with the notion that soulmates exist. I could not disagree more! (more…)
I’m in a peculiar situation. Every woman, including me, dreams about meeting her Prince Charming, being swept off her feet, having a dream wedding, and living happily ever after. That fairytale sounds nice, but the reality is much different. No matter what I do or where I look, I have yet to meet Prince Charming and I continue to see my friends’ fairytales turn into horror stories. Beginning to wonder if marriage is really for me or am doomed to live a life of solitude.
Every marriage hits a speed bump and inevitably there is some sort of discord. How do you get over the hump? What if you cannot? Sometimes, unfortunately, infidelity happens and affairs take place, but what happens when you leave your husband, fall in love with another man and then realize you miss your husband?
Where do I begin? Long story short, I want a baby and I know my husband doesn’t. He will flip if I confront him about it. We’ve been married 6 years now and when we began dating we both decided that kids were not what we wanted. He’s 9 years older than me and already has an adult daughter from a previous relationship. I was focused on my career, seeking a stable partner in life, and didn’t want the responsibilities and burdens of rearing a child. I wanted the freedom to travel, shop, do nothing if I so chose, so when my husband and I started dating, it was the ideal situation. I’ve grown used to the freedom, but now I have the “itch.” My co-workers are always parading their kids around and showing pictures from their kids’ functions. All but one of my girlfriends is a mother now and they go on and on about the joy of motherhood. Now I feel as if I’m missing out on something and I’ve been selfish. I want to feel and have what they have… but how do I convince my husband? Please help.
I make more money than my husband and it has caused issues in our marriage and is a constant source of discontent between my husband and me. I’m not sure how to resolve this issue or how to appease my husband’s pride and dignity. Is this an issue of my husband being uncomfortable not being the main bread winner or a sense of embarrassment amongst our peers? How can we move past this?
