Hello dearheart!!

I must admit, I'm not tied to any particular religion but very much believe that our marriage is sacred it's treated as sacred by my husband and I.

And because of that, no matter what happens, (short of abuse), the "d" word is not an option.

I feel sad by just how quickly people advise leaving your partner when a person posts about the negative aspects of their marriage. Surely people should realise that is just one side posting, and posting purely about the negative when there is likely a lot of positive also.

And surely, while we all have the power to learn, grow and change, any marriage can change for the better.

I agree that physical affection in the form of hugs and kisses (the non-explicitly sexual stuff) are the very best. They make you feel adored and happy.
