True Wife Confessions Numbah 19, Numbah 19

Confession #181

All those times I said I wasn't happy with our marriage? I really meant those. It was NOT a time of the month thing, I have outgrown you. Did I ever think I'd cheat on you? No. Am I ? Yes. And I don't feel guilty because I am finally feeling like a successful, appreciated, caring, talented woman that someone adores. All those nights I'm with you, I'm thinking of him. And if I go away to visit a friend or take a long afternoon shopping, I'm not where you think I am. And you are so spineless I wonder if you found out, if you'd even do anything about it. I have a feeling you'd let it occur right under your nose just so I wouldn't leave you

Confession #182

Why won’t I have sex you? The correct question is why would I ?

Confession #183

When you fall asleep watching TV on the sofa, I run upstairs to the computer and type very quietly with the lights off, so I don't wake you. If you do wake up, I shut off the monitor and quickly hop into bed, so that you think I haven't been on the computer all night.

Confession #184

My worst fear is that one morning you'll wake up and realize that you are too good for me and that I don't deserve you. But I never fear that you will leave me, because you have been nothing but a wonderful husband and father to our child. I know you will never do anything to hurt us. You really are my hero.

Confession #185

If you make a promise, keep it. I keep mine. If you don't have what it takes to be a man of your word, don't run your mouth.

Stop expecting me to feel sorry for you with all of your ailments. They are all self-inflicted. Yes, that's what happens when you don't brush your teeth or have good hygiene. You're not fooling anybody, everyone else knows that too.

I no longer have an interest in getting you off because you show no interest in getting me off.

Yes, you have a job. Get over it. Everyone has to work. Either change careers or stop whining and complaining. Guess what? Everyone you're complaining to just came from work too!

If you don't start to address the projects around the house that need your attention, I will call someone and have it taken care of. I don't care if it IS what you do.

If buying me gifts for the holidays is such a problem, don't do it anymore. I'll take the cash. I can't take another holiday of you waiting until the last minute to shop and coming home with things I never asked for because that's all you could find in the last 10 minutes the store was open.

I know I didn't marry Romeo BUT after nearly 20 years you do have to spring for a getaway at some point. If you choose not to again when our 20th anniversary rolls around, I will plan my own getaway and leave you at home, alone.

Yes, you have a problem gambling when you spend as much time doing that as you do working.

Please try to remember that there are other people around you. They have feelings too. Treat others like you would like to be treated. The world does not revolve around you.

Confession #186

I have never loved you.....I only married you because I was afraid I'd be alone forever. I wish I would have known that being married to you would make me feel more alone than ever...

Confession #187

I read your emails, all of them. Even the ones you don't think I know about

Confession #188

I watch porn ocassionally, not because I am sick or twisted or have some sort of fetish. I watch it, because I figure at least the porn stars are getting some...more often than I am. I only dream sex could be that good and lengthy.

Confession #189

The mornings when you let me sleep in while you take care of the child win you more points than just about anything else you could do.

Confession #190

You are a whiny bitch on family trips and when we have company. I miss having a social life that involves you.

#186 - Sometimes you don't even realize you feel a certain way until you hear someone else say it...

#189 - why is this so hard? You're a morning person, I am not, let me sleep in once in a while and don't make a big deal out of it, you will win major points and might even get some!

I'm surprised at the number of women who have to hide their porn from men. I thought guys would give anything to get their women interested in porn? Who are these men?

My husband wants nothing to do with porn - or my vibrator. I've offered to try toys interest.

It is Very discouraging.

Wow. I hope this is not all real.

Sorry, John, it is.

Aw yeah on #189! And all us mama-types should emblazon this at the tops of our blogs. No need for anonymity on that one in my book!

I'm a single woman that has been reading this site lately.

Is marriage REALLY this bad?? I have committment issues to begin with. Reading these stories makes marriage sound like a truly, grueling, horrific experience. You guys can keep the institution, thank you very much.

What's the point of getting married or staying married if people are so miserable?

NOT all marriages are the same as the ones depicted here. I visit the site, and relating to the stories helps me vicariously vent some steam. But there is still no other way I would choose to live my life than being with my husband. While there are some little things, and occasionally larger things that we go through, we choose to go through them together. If he annoys me, or if there's a problem in our relationship, I tell him straight out. That honesty keeps us together and connected. He's not perfect, but he is and will always be the love of my life.

It isn't that Marraige is THAT BAD, it's just that no one every talks about these issues out loud.

It is also that these things DO come up in many marriages - even good ones, and you think "Am I the only one?"

But you aren't.

Same with being a Mom. I wish someone had leaned in and said "There will be days that you will HATE it with every fiber of your being"

That way when it happens you can think "This too shall pass" - and breathe.

And person who left their confessions on the comments - I erased them in comments and put them in an upcoming edition...

I feel the same way as #186...I always knew I did. Not that misery loves company, but it sure feels better knowing you're not the only one sometimes...Thanks for this site...

How come everyone jumps at the ones that confess they are having an affair with a married man, but no one says anything when the wife is doing the cheating????
