You probably never meant for it to happen. However, once you fell in love with someone else other than your spouse, things got rather intense. Some are honest enough with themselves that they know step-by-step how everything came to be as it is now.
Others have more difficulty, their mind confused because what they are doing is so contrary to what they believe and value. Some feel that God sent them their soul mate. Underlying vulnerabilities very likely made the new relationship possible. My work with thousands of married couples in crisis indicates that this is exactly the case. If you suspect your spouse of having an affair, take the Affair Test after reading this article to get a good idea if your fears are justified. Your desire is to have, not to hurt.
There may be an exception to that if you feel that your spouse has been unkind or hurtful. If so, that degree of negativity toward your spouse probably increased its intensity after your affair began. If you choose short-term, you may decide to end your marriage for your lover. The intensity of your present emotions may make that the choice that seems most likely to make you happy.
Consequences involving your family, your children, your friends, your religion, your personal beliefs and values, and your spouse. Nearly everyone who makes that decision figures that because of they are deeply in love with someone else, everything balances out in the end.
In the ecstasy of new love people overlook flaws, quirks, and problems in the other or in the relationship. You will discover that Cinderella and Prince Charming exist only in fairy tales.
All the rest of us are flawed and at times hard to live with. Repeatedly those who left their spouses for a remarkable love come to me after a few years and say they wish they could do it all over again. They would look deeper into their hearts to see that their beliefs and values are part of their very identity and realize that to live in contradiction to them would lead them to become someone quite different than they were.
What do you honestly, at the deepest level of your being, expect it to be ten years from now if you abandon your marriage, maybe destroy another in the process if your lover is married as well , and violate your core beliefs?
Based on my observations of and work with thousands of people, I can tell you from a purely logical, statistical, vantage point, that it is extremely unlikely. If you wish to learn how to overcome the deep emotion you currently feel for your lover and find the way to have a fulfilling marriage with your mate, we can help.
Please get more information by completing the form below or by calling us at Hi…thanks for the info. I been married for fifteen years. I have strayed online and met a woman I am falling in love with. I am stuck between rock and a hard place.
I want this woman so bad! Shes from another country and wants to fly here to be with me. I have two children also.
We understand your situation because we see it everyday at Marriage Helper. My advice is to give us a call at And if possible, we would love to see you and your wife at one of our workshops for marriages in crisis.
In the next couple of weeks we will also have a great video series that Joe put together for spouses in your situation. It will be extremely valuable in your decision making process. Let us know how else we can help! We both share the same passions and we have a friendship like none other.
I love my wife, but I think, that we are going different, ways and we clash a lot. I am sooooo lost!!! I am so sorry you are going through this.. We know how difficult your walk in this journey is as well. However my best friend and I are feeling all the urges to be together.
Shes been married 30 years and happily but somehow her and I fell in love. Both of us know we can never be together but we both are also madly in love with eachother. How to we escape the deep love and just be friends? She asks me for poetry and short stories of romance and I give them to her. I was in a terrible marriage for 20 years no intimacy at all no love and I feel this is why I have fallen in love with her and then she me.
Ed, I understand the intense emotion that you feel for this woman. I also know how in nearly every case these situations turn out. However, it will not last in the same form it is now. When it does, people look around and wonder what happened…how they gave up so much for this new relationship that seemed to be the ideal…and how that beautiful dream evolved into a nightmare. More than 20 years experience working with couples tells me that if you pursue this new woman and lose your wife of fifteen years, you will come to regret it.
Think of it like this…take all the passion your fee for the new woman now and multiply it by a factor of ten but in a negative direction.
Send us an email to Johnny. Kenya, I recommend that you head over to our podcasts section and listen to some of them. We have quite a few that speak to what you are feeling and going through.

We hope you can check it out and we believe it can be extremely helpful to you.
Its seems like every thing is perfect. We like all the same things.. He never wants to do anything. He says that he tired from work all the time. He has physically hit me. I already have two children with my husband. My husband has left our home. But comes there everyday. What should i do? Grass is not green on the other side.
Make things right with your wife. What if she did that to you? Talk to your wife and maybe you can work it out together. You guys both have to work at it. If you have a physical connection with this women you will ruin your family and make yourself more confuse.
Nothing not good forever you will come across other problems with this other women once you really get to know her. You were once in love with your wife and probably still love her but not in love.
Give your family a chance. Cut ties with that woman and focus on your family and exercise maybe join a gym with your wife find the spark that was once there. If you are ready to fully go. Think about this are you ready to see your wife with someone else loving her and your kids.
Hi…I am married 15years now. I took it very bad at that time and gave him. Everything went well but I think about it every day. The last 1year I became very talkitive to a friend of my husband that knows about the affair my husband had as he was there the night I confronted the women. The last 3 weeks we called. We decided to meet last Thursday just for. But he kissed me and I kissed back aboy 3 times. I walked away cause I dont believe in cheating as it hurts so much.
But I cant stop thinking about him and think I have not felt like this for. I can turn around and he want more of. I told him that the kiss just drove me more md but I never returned. I live abiut km away but work close by every 2 week. I play the kissing over and over in my head. What should I do? My husband on the other hand I can see is trying to change but there are still so much lies from. Imagine the first girl you ever loved — how your emotions were so strong.
And then over time.
For example, In the United States, polygamy is illegal in all 50 states. Over a century ago, citizens of the self-governing territory of what is present-day Utah were forced by the United States federal government to abandon the practice of polygamy through the vigorous enforcement of several Acts of Congress and eventually complied.
Several countries such as India and Sri Lanka,  permit only their Islamic citizens to practice polygamy. Some Indians have converted to Islam in order to bypass such legal restrictions. Myanmar frequently referred to as Burma is also the only predominantly Buddhist nation to allow for civil polygynous marriages, though such is rarely tolerated by the Burmese population. In various jurisdictions, a civil marriage may take place as part of the religious marriage ceremony, although they are theoretically distinct.
Some jurisdictions allow civil marriages in circumstances which are notably not allowed by particular religions, such as same-sex marriages or civil unions. The opposite case may happen as well. Partners may not have full juridical acting capacity and churches may have less strict limits than the civil jurisdictions. This particularly applies to minimum age, or physical infirmities. It is possible for two people to be recognised as married by a religious or other institution, but not by the state, and hence without the legal rights and obligations of marriage; or to have a civil marriage deemed invalid and sinful by a religion.
Similarly, a couple may remain married in religious eyes after a civil divorce. A marriage is usually formalized at a wedding or marriage ceremony.
The ceremony may be officiated either by a religious official, by a government official or by a state approved celebrant. In various European and some Latin American countries, any religious ceremony must be held separately from the required civil ceremony. Some countries — such as Belgium, Bulgaria , France, the Netherlands, Romania and Turkey  — require that a civil ceremony take place before any religious one.
In some countries — notably the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland , Norway and Spain — both ceremonies can be held together; the officiant at the religious and civil ceremony also serving as agent of the state to perform the civil ceremony. To avoid any implication that the state is "recognizing" a religious marriage which is prohibited in some countries — the "civil" ceremony is said to be taking place at the same time as the religious ceremony.
Often this involves simply signing a register during the religious ceremony. If the civil element of the religious ceremony is omitted, the marriage ceremony is not recognized as a marriage by government under the law. Some countries, such as Australia, permit marriages to be held in private and at any location; others, including England and Wales , require that the civil ceremony be conducted in a place open to the public and specially sanctioned by law for the purpose.
In England, the place of marriage formerly had to be a church or register office , but this was extended to any public venue with the necessary licence. An exception can be made in the case of marriage by special emergency license UK: Rules about where and when persons can marry vary from place to place.
Some regulations require one of the parties to reside within the jurisdiction of the register office formerly parish. Each religious authority has rules for the manner in which marriages are to be conducted by their officials and members. Where religious marriages are recognised by the state, the officiator must also conform with the law of the jurisdiction. In a small number of jurisdictions marriage relationships may be created by the operation of the law alone.
A civil union , also referred to as a civil partnership , is a legally recognized form of partnership similar to marriage. Beginning with Denmark in , civil unions under one name or another have been established by law in several countries in order to provide same-sex couples rights , benefits, and responsibilities similar in some countries, identical to opposite-sex civil marriage. Sometimes people marry to take advantage of a certain situation, sometimes called a marriage of convenience or a sham marriage.
For example, according to one publisher of information about green card marriages , "Every year over , United States citizens marry foreign-born individuals and petition for them to obtain a permanent residency Green Card in the United States. Regardless of the number of people entering the US to marry a US citizen, it does not indicate the number of these marriages that are convenience marriages, which number could include some of those with the motive of obtaining permanent residency, but also include people who are US citizens.
One example would be to obtain an inheritance that has a marriage clause. Another example would be to save money on health insurance or to enter a health plan with preexisting conditions offered by the new spouse's employer. Other situations exist, and, in fact, all marriages have a complex combination of conveniences motivating the parties to marry. A marriage of convenience is one that is devoid of normal reasons to marry. In certain countries like Singapore sham marriages like these are punishable criminal offences.
People have proposed arguments against marriage for reasons that include political, philosophical and religious criticisms; concerns about the divorce rate ; individual liberty and gender equality; questioning the necessity of having a personal relationship sanctioned by government or religious authorities; or the promotion of celibacy for religious or philosophical reasons.
Feminist theory approaches opposite-sex marriage as an institution traditionally rooted in patriarchy that promotes male superiority and power over women. This power dynamic conceptualizes men as "the provider operating in the public sphere" and women as "the caregivers operating within the private sphere".
The adultery of a woman was always treated with more severity than that of a man. Numerous philosophers, feminists and other academic figures have commented on this throughout history, condemning the hypocrisy of legal and religious authorities in regard to sexual issues; pointing to the lack of choice of a woman in regard to controlling her own sexuality; and drawing parallels between marriage, an institution promoted as sacred, and prostitution , widely condemned and vilified though often tolerated as a " necessary evil ".
Mary Wollstonecraft , in the 18th century, described marriage as "legal prostitution". Some critics object to what they see as propaganda in relation to marriage — from the government, religious organizations, the media — which aggressively promote marriage as a solution for all social problems; such propaganda includes, for instance, marriage promotion in schools, where children, especially girls , are bombarded with positive information about marriage, being presented only with the information prepared by authorities.
The performance of dominant gender roles by men and submissive gender roles by women influence the power dynamic of a heterosexual marriage. Author bell hooks states "within the family structure, individuals learn to accept sexist oppression as 'natural' and are primed to support other forms of oppression, including heterosexist domination. In the US, studies have shown that, despite egalitarian ideals being common, less than half of respondents viewed their opposite-sex relationships as equal in power, with unequal relationships being more commonly dominated by the male partner.
Different societies demonstrate variable tolerance of extramarital sex. The Standard Cross-Cultural Sample describes the occurrence of extramarital sex by gender in over 50 pre-industrial cultures. The occurrence of extramarital sex by women is described as "universal" in 6 cultures, "moderate" in 23 cultures, "occasional" in 9 cultures, and "uncommon" in 15 cultures.
Many of the world's major religions look with disfavor on sexual relations outside marriage. Adultery is considered in many jurisdictions to be a crime and grounds for divorce. In some countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan,  Afghanistan,   Iran,  Kuwait,  Maldives,  Morocco,  Oman,  Mauritania,  United Arab Emirates,   Sudan,  Yemen,  any form of sexual activity outside marriage is illegal. In some parts of the world, women and girls accused of having sexual relations outside marriage are at risk of becoming victims of honor killings committed by their families.
In Pakistan , after the Balochistan honour killings in which five women were killed by tribesmen of the Umrani Tribe of Balochistan , Pakistani Federal Minister for Postal Services Israr Ullah Zehri defended the practice; he said: Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid. An issue that is a serious concern regarding marriage and which has been the object of international scrutiny is that of sexual violence within marriage.
Throughout much of the history, in most cultures, sex in marriage was considered a 'right', that could be taken by force often by a man from a woman , if 'denied'. As the concept of human rights started to develop in the 20th century, and with the arrival of second-wave feminism , such views have become less widely held.
The legal and social concept of marital rape has developed in most industrialized countries in the mid- to late 20th century; in many other parts of the world it is not recognized as a form of abuse, socially or legally. Several countries in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia made marital rape illegal before , and other countries in Western Europe and the English-speaking Western world outlawed it in the s and s.
In England and Wales , marital rape was made illegal in Although marital rape is being increasingly criminalized in developing countries too, cultural, religious, and traditional ideologies about "conjugal rights" remain very strong in many parts of the world; and even in many countries that have adequate laws against rape in marriage these laws are rarely enforced. Apart from the issue of rape committed against one's spouse, marriage is, in many parts of the world, closely connected with other forms of sexual violence: Because being the victim of rape and losing virginity carry extreme social stigma, and the victims are deemed to have their "reputation" tarnished, a marriage with the rapist is arranged.
This is claimed to be in the advantage of both the victim — who does not remain unmarried and doesn't lose social status — and of the rapist, who avoids punishment. In , after a Moroccan year-old girl committed suicide after having been forced by her family to marry her rapist and enduring further abuse by the rapist after they married, there have been protests from activists against this practice which is common in Morocco.
In some societies, the very high social and religious importance of marital fidelity, especially female fidelity, has as result the criminalization of adultery, often with harsh penalties such as stoning or flogging ; as well as leniency towards punishment of violence related to infidelity such as honor killings. A Joint Statement by the United Nations Working Group on discrimination against women in law and in practice states that "Adultery as a criminal offence violates women's human rights".
The laws surrounding heterosexual marriage in many countries have come under international scrutiny because they contradict international standards of human rights ; institutionalize violence against women , child marriage and forced marriage ; require the permission of a husband for his wife to work in a paid job, sign legal documents, file criminal charges against someone, sue in civil court etc. Such things were legal even in many Western countries until recently: Throughout history, and still today in many countries, laws have provided for extenuating circumstances , partial or complete defenses, for men who killed their wives due to adultery, with such acts often being seen as crimes of passion and being covered by legal defenses such as provocation or defense of family honor.
While international law and conventions recognize the need for consent for entering a marriage - namely that people cannot be forced to get married against their will - the right to obtain a divorce is not recognized; therefore holding a person in a marriage against their will if such person has consented to entering in it is not considered a violation of human rights, with the issue of divorce being left at the appreciation of individual states. The European Court of Human Rights has repeatedly ruled that under the European Convention on Human Rights there is neither a right to apply to divorce, nor a right to obtain the divorce if applied for it; in , in Babiarz v.
Poland , the Court ruled that Poland was entitled to deny a divorce because the grounds for divorce were not met, even if the marriage in question was acknowledged both by Polish courts and by the ECHR as being a legal fiction involving a long-term separation where the husband lived with another woman with whom he had an year-old child.
In the EU, the last country to allow divorce was Malta , in Around the world, the only countries to forbid divorce are Philippines and Vatican City ,  although in practice in many countries which use a fault-based divorce system obtaining a divorce is very difficult.
The ability to divorce, in law and practice, has been and continues to be a controversial issue in many countries, and public discourse involves different ideologies such as feminism, social conservatism, religious interpretations. In recent years, the customs of dowry and bride price have received international criticism for inciting conflicts between families and clans; contributing to violence against women ; promoting materialism; increasing property crimes where men steal goods such as cattle in order to be able to pay the bride price ; and making it difficult for poor people to marry.
African women's rights campaigners advocate the abolishing of bride price, which they argue is based on the idea that women are a form of property which can be bought. Historically, and still in many countries, children born outside marriage suffered severe social stigma and discrimination. In England and Wales, such children were known as bastards and whoresons.
There are significant differences between world regions in regard to the social and legal position of non-marital births, ranging from being fully accepted and uncontroversial to being severely stigmatized and discriminated.
The European Convention on the Legal Status of Children Born out of Wedlock protects the rights of children born to unmarried parents. While in most Western countries legal inequalities between children born inside and outside marriage have largely been abolished, this is not the case in some parts of the world.
The legal status of an unmarried father differs greatly from country to country. Without voluntary formal recognition of the child by the father, in most cases there is a need of due process of law in order to establish paternity.
In some countries however, unmarried cohabitation of a couple for a specific period of time does create a presumption of paternity similar to that of formal marriage. This is the case in Australia.
A special situation arises when a married woman has a child by a man other than her husband. Some countries, such as Israel , refuse to accept a legal challenge of paternity in such a circumstance, in order to avoid the stigmatization of the child see Mamzer , a concept under Jewish law.
In , the European Court of Human Rights ruled in favor of a German man who had fathered twins with a married woman, granting him right of contact with the twins, despite the fact that the mother and her husband had forbidden him to see the children. The steps that an unmarried father must take in order to obtain rights to his child vary by country. In some countries such as the UK — since in England and Wales, in Scotland, and in Northern Ireland it is sufficient for the father to be listed on the birth certificate for him to have parental rights;  in other countries, such as Ireland, simply being listed on the birth certificate does not offer any rights, additional legal steps must be taken if the mother agrees, the parents can both sign a "statutory declaration", but if the mother does not agree, the father has to apply to court.
Children born outside marriage have become more common, and in some countries, the majority. During the first half of the 20th century, unmarried women in some Western countries were coerced by authorities to give their children up for adoption. This was especially the case in Australia, through the forced adoptions in Australia , with most of these adoptions taking place between the s and the s. In , Julia Gillard , then Prime Minister of Australia, offered a national apology to those affected by the forced adoptions.
Some married couples choose not to have children. Others are unable to have children because of infertility or other factors preventing conception or the bearing of children. In some cultures, marriage imposes an obligation on women to bear children. In northern Ghana , for example, payment of bridewealth signifies a woman's requirement to bear children, and women using birth control face substantial threats of physical abuse and reprisals.
Religions develop in specific geographic and social milieux. The precepts of mainstream religions include, as a rule, unequivocal prescriptions for marriage, establishing both rituals and rules of conduct. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman', for she was taken out of man. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. Christian marriages are based upon the teachings of Jesus and the Paul the Apostle. A couple could exchange consent anywhere, anytime. Decrees on marriage of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent twenty-fourth session of made the validity of marriage dependent on the wedding occurring in the presence of a priest and two witnesses.
The Christian Church performed marriages in the narthex of the church prior to the 16th century, when the emphasis was on the marital contract and betrothal. Subsequently, the ceremony moved inside the sacristy of the church. Christians often [ quantify ] marry for religious reasons, ranging from following the biblical injunction for a "man to leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one", [Gen.
Catholics , Eastern Orthodox , as well as many Anglicans and Methodists , consider marriage termed holy matrimony to be an expression of divine grace ,  termed a sacrament and mystery in the first two Christian traditions. In Western ritual , the ministers of the sacrament are the spouses themselves, with a bishop , priest , or deacon merely witnessing the union on behalf of the Church and blessing it.
In Eastern ritual churches , the bishop or priest functions as the actual minister of the Sacred Mystery; Eastern Orthodox deacons may not perform marriages. Western Christians commonly refer to marriage as a vocation , while Eastern Christians consider it an ordination and a martyrdom , though the theological emphases indicated by the various names are not excluded by the teachings of either tradition.
The sacrament of marriage is indicative of the relationship between Christ and the Church. The Roman Catholic tradition of the 12th and 13th centuries defined marriage as a sacrament ordained by God,  signifying the mystical marriage of Christ to his Church. The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.
For Catholic and Methodist Christians, the mutual love between man and wife becomes an image of the eternal love with which God loves humankind. Sacramental marriage confers a perpetual and exclusive bond between the spouses. By its nature, the institution of marriage and conjugal love is ordered to the procreation and upbringing of offspring. Marriage creates rights and duties in the Church between the spouses and towards their children: Civilly remarried persons who civilly divorced a living and lawful spouse are not separated from the Church, but they cannot receive Eucharistic Communion.
Divorce and remarriage , while generally not encouraged, are regarded differently by each Christian denomination. Most Protestant Churches allow persons to marry again after a divorce, while other require an annulment. The Eastern Orthodox Church allows divorce for a limited number of reasons, and in theory, but usually not in practice, requires that a marriage after divorce be celebrated with a penitential overtone.
With respect to marriage between a Christian and a pagan, the early Church "sometimes took a more lenient view, invoking the so-called Pauline privilege of permissible separation 1 Cor. The Catholic Church adheres to the proscription of Jesus in Matthew , Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.
Specifically, Canon declares that "the essential properties of marriage are unity and indissolubility ; in [C]hristian marriage they acquire a distinctive firmness by reason of the sacrament. However, the Church has the authority to annul a presumed "marriage" by declaring it to have been invalid from the beginning, i. For Protestant denominations, the purposes of marriage include intimate companionship, rearing children, and mutual support for both spouses to fulfill their life callings.
Most Reformed Christians did not regard marriage to the status of a sacrament "because they did not regard matrimony as a necessary means of grace for salvation"; nevertheless it is considered a covenant between spouses before God.
Since the 16th century, five competing models of marriage have shaped Protestant marriage and legal tradition:. Although many Christian denominations do not currently perform same-sex marriages , many do, such as the Presbyterian Church U.
Islam also commends marriage, with the age of marriage being whenever the individuals feel ready, financially and emotionally.
In Islam, polygyny is allowed while polyandry is not, with the specific limitation that a man can have no more than four legal wives at any one time and an unlimited number of female slaves as concubines , with the requirement that the man is able and willing to partition his time and wealth equally among the respective wives. For a Muslim wedding to take place, the bridegroom and the guardian of the bride wali must both agree on the marriage. Should the guardian disagree on the marriage, it may not legally take place.
If the wali of the girl her father or paternal grandfather, he has the right to force her into marriage even against her proclaimed will, if it is her first marriage. A guardian who is allowed to force the bride into marriage is called wali mujbir. From an Islamic Sharia law perspective, the minimum requirements and responsibilities in a Muslim marriage are that the groom provide living expenses housing, clothing, food, maintenance to the bride, and in return, the bride's main responsibility is raising children to be proper Muslims.
All other rights and responsibilities are to be decided between the husband and wife, and may even be included as stipulations in the marriage contract before the marriage actually takes place, so long as they do not go against the minimum requirements of the marriage.
In Sunni Islam , marriage must take place in the presence of at least two reliable witnesses, with the consent of the guardian of the bride and the consent of the groom. Following the marriage, the couple may consummate the marriage. To create an ' urf marriage, it is sufficient that a man and a woman indicate an intention to marry each other and recite the requisite words in front of a suitable Muslim.
The wedding party usually follows but can be held days, or months later, whenever the couple and their families want to; however, there can be no concealment of the marriage as it is regarded as public notification due to the requirement of witnesses.
Following the marriage they may consummate their marriage. In Judaism , marriage is based on the laws of the Torah and is a contractual bond between spouses in which the spouses dedicate to be exclusive to one another.
Kabbalistically , marriage is understood to mean that the spouses are merging into a single soul. This is why a man is considered "incomplete" if he is not married, as his soul is only one part of a larger whole that remains to be unified. Polygyny , or men having multiple wives at once, is one of the most common marital arrangements represented in the Hebrew Bible.
Among ancient Hebrews, marriage was a domestic affair and not a religious ceremony; the participation of a priest or rabbi was not required. Betrothal erusin , which refers to the time that this binding contract is made, is distinct from marriage itself nissu'in , with the time between these events varying substantially. Since a wife was regarded as property, her husband was originally free to divorce her for any reason, at any time.
A divorced couple were permitted to get back together, unless the wife had married someone else after her divorce. Hinduism sees marriage as a sacred duty that entails both religious and social obligations. Old Hindu literature in Sanskrit gives many different types of marriages and their categorization ranging from "Gandharva Vivaha" instant marriage by mutual consent of participants only, without any need for even a single third person as witness to normal present day marriages, to "Rakshasa Vivaha" "demoniac" marriage, performed by abduction of one participant by the other participant, usually, but not always, with the help of other persons.
In India and generally in South Asia, arranged marriages , the spouse's parents or an older family member choose the partner, are still predominant in comparison with so called love marriages until nowadays.
The Buddhist view of marriage considers marriage a secular affair and thus not a sacrament. Buddhists are expected to follow the civil laws regarding marriage laid out by their respective governments. Gautama Buddha, being a kshatriya was required by Shakyan tradition to pass a series of tests to prove himself as a warrior, before he was allowed to marry.
In a Sikh marriage, the couple walks around the Guru Granth Sahib holy book four times, and a holy man recites from it in the kirtan style. The ceremony is known as ' Anand Karaj ' and represents the holy union of two souls united as one. Wiccan marriages are commonly known as handfastings. Although handfastings vary for each Wiccan they often involve honoring Wiccan gods. Sex is considered a pious and sacred activity.
Marriage, like other close relationships, exerts considerable influence on health. Social ties provide people with a sense of identity, purpose, belonging, and support.
The health-protective effect of marriage is stronger for men than women. Women's health is more strongly impacted than men's by marital conflict or satisfaction, such that unhappily married women do not enjoy better health relative to their single counterparts. In most societies, the death of one of the partners terminates the marriage, and in monogamous societies this allows the other partner to remarry, though sometimes after a waiting or mourning period.
In some societies, a marriage can be annulled , when an authority declares that a marriage never happened. Jurisdictions often have provisions for void marriages or voidable marriages. A marriage may also be terminated through divorce. Countries that have relatively recently legalized divorce are Italy , Portugal , Brazil , Spain , Argentina , Paraguay , Colombia , Ireland , Chile and Malta As of , the Philippines and the Vatican City are the only jurisdictions which do not allow divorce this is currently under discussion in Philippines.
Laws concerning divorce and the ease with which a divorce can be obtained vary widely around the world. After a divorce or an annulment, the people concerned are free to remarry or marry.
A statutory right of two married partners to mutually consent to divorce was enacted in western nations in the midth century.
In the United States no-fault divorce was first enacted in California in and the final state to legalize it was New York in The history of marriage is often considered under History of the family or legal history. Many cultures have legends concerning the origins of marriage. The way in which a marriage is conducted and its rules and ramifications has changed over time, as has the institution itself, depending on the culture or demographic of the time.
According to ancient Hebrew tradition, a wife was seen as being property of high value and was, therefore, usually, carefully looked after. The husband, too, is indirectly implied to have some responsibilities to his wife. The Covenant Code orders "If he take him another; her food, her clothing, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish or lessen ".
And the term diminish, which means to lessen, shows the man must treat her as if he was not married to another.
As a polygynous society, the Israelites did not have any laws that imposed marital fidelity on men. The literary prophets indicate that adultery was a frequent occurrence, despite their strong protests against it,     and these legal strictnesses. In ancient Greece , no specific civil ceremony was required for the creation of a heterosexual marriage — only mutual agreement and the fact that the couple must regard each other as husband and wife accordingly.
It has been suggested that these ages made sense for the Greeks because men were generally done with military service or financially established by their late 20s, and marrying a teenage girl ensured ample time for her to bear children, as life expectancies were significantly lower.
There were several types of marriages in ancient Roman society. The traditional "conventional" form called conventio in manum required a ceremony with witnesses and was also dissolved with a ceremony.
She now was subject to the authority of her husband. In this arrangement, the wife remained a member of her original family; she stayed under the authority of her father, kept her family rights of inheritance with her old family and did not gain any with the new family. Among ancient Germanic tribes, the bride and groom were roughly the same age and generally older than their Roman counterparts, at least according to Tacitus:. The youths partake late of the pleasures of love, and hence pass the age of puberty unexhausted: Where Aristotle had set the prime of life at 37 years for men and 18 for women, the Visigothic Code of law in the 7th century placed the prime of life at 20 years for both men and women, after which both presumably married.
Tacitus states that ancient Germanic brides were on average about 20 and were roughly the same age as their husbands. In addition, Anglo-Saxon women, like those of other Germanic tribes, are marked as women from the age of 12 and older, based on archaeological finds, implying that the age of marriage coincided with puberty. From the early Christian era 30 to CE , marriage was thought of as primarily a private matter, with no uniform religious or other ceremony being required.
In 12th-century Europe, women took the surname of their husbands and starting in the second half of the 16th century parental consent along with the church's consent was required for marriage. With few local exceptions, until , Christian marriages in Europe were by mutual consent, declaration of intention to marry and upon the subsequent physical union of the parties.
In a wedding took place in Zufia, Navarre , between Diego de Zufia and Mari-Miguel following the custom as it was in the realm since the Middle Ages, but the man denounced the marriage on the grounds that its validity was conditioned to "riding" her " si te cabalgo, lo cual dixo de bascuence The tribunal of the kingdom rejected the husband's claim, validating the wedding, but the husband appealed to the tribunal in Zaragoza , and this institution annulled the marriage.
In the Council of Trent , twenty-fourth session, required that a valid marriage must be performed by a priest before two witnesses. One of the functions of churches from the Middle Ages was to register marriages, which was not obligatory. There was no state involvement in marriage and personal status, with these issues being adjudicated in ecclesiastical courts. During the Middle Ages marriages were arranged, sometimes as early as birth, and these early pledges to marry were often used to ensure treaties between different royal families, nobles, and heirs of fiefdoms.
The church resisted these imposed unions, and increased the number of causes for nullification of these arrangements. In Medieval Western Europe , later marriage and higher rates of definitive celibacy the so-called "European marriage pattern" helped to constrain patriarchy at its most extreme level.
For example, Medieval England saw marriage age as variable depending on economic circumstances, with couples delaying marriage until the early twenties when times were bad and falling to the late teens after the Black Death , when there were labor shortages;  by appearances, marriage of adolescents was not the norm in England.
The average age of marriage for most of Northwestern Europe from to was around 25 years of age ;    as the Church dictated that both parties had to be at least 21 years of age to marry without the consent of their parents, the bride and groom were roughly the same age, with most brides in their early twenties and most grooms two or three years older,  and a substantial number of women married for the first time in their thirties and forties, particularly in urban areas,  with the average age at first marriage rising and falling as circumstances dictated.
In better times, more people could afford to marry earlier and thus fertility rose and conversely marriages were delayed or forgone when times were bad, thus restricting family size;  after the Black Death , the greater availability of profitable jobs allowed more people to marry young and have more children,  but the stabilization of the population in the 16th century meant fewer job opportunities and thus more people delaying marriages. The age of marriage was not absolute, however, as child marriages occurred throughout the Middle Ages and later, with just some of them including:.
As part of the Protestant Reformation , the role of recording marriages and setting the rules for marriage passed to the state, reflecting Martin Luther 's view that marriage was a "worldly thing". In England, under the Anglican Church, marriage by consent and cohabitation was valid until the passage of Lord Hardwicke's Act in This act instituted certain requirements for marriage, including the performance of a religious ceremony observed by witnesses.
As part of the Counter-Reformation , in the Council of Trent decreed that a Roman Catholic marriage would be recognized only if the marriage ceremony was officiated by a priest with two witnesses. The Council also authorized a Catechism , issued in , which defined marriage as "The conjugal union of man and woman, contracted between two qualified persons, which obliges them to live together throughout life.
In the early modern period , John Calvin and his Protestant colleagues reformulated Christian marriage by enacting the Marriage Ordinance of Geneva, which imposed "The dual requirements of state registration and church consecration to constitute marriage"  for recognition.
In England and Wales , Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act required a formal ceremony of marriage, thereby curtailing the practice of Fleet Marriage , an irregular or a clandestine marriage. From the s until the Marriage Act of as many as , clandestine marriages were performed at Fleet Prison alone.
The Act did not apply to Jewish marriages or those of Quakers, whose marriages continued to be governed by their own customs. In England and Wales, since , civil marriages have been recognized as a legal alternative to church marriages under the Marriage Act In Germany, civil marriages were recognized in This law permitted a declaration of the marriage before an official clerk of the civil administration, when both spouses affirm their will to marry, to constitute a legally recognized valid and effective marriage, and allowed an optional private clerical marriage ceremony.
In contemporary English common law , a marriage is a voluntary contract by a man and a woman, in which by agreement they choose to become husband and wife. In ancient Chinese society, people of the same surname are supposed to consult with their family trees prior to marriage to reduce the potential risk of unintentional incest. Marrying one's maternal relatives was generally not thought of as incest.
Families sometimes intermarried from one generation to another. Over time, Chinese people became more geographically mobile. Individuals remained members of their biological families.
When a couple died, the husband and the wife were buried separately in the respective clan's graveyard. In a maternal marriage a male would become a son-in-law who lived in the wife's home. The New Marriage Law of radically changed Chinese heterosexual marriage traditions, enforcing monogamy , equality of men and women, and choice in marriage; arranged marriages were the most common type of marriage in China until then.
Starting October , it became legal to marry or divorce without authorization from the couple's work units. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Marriage disambiguation.

These feelings to see her are tearing me apart! My husband starting talking to an acquaintance from high school in Feb It has quickly escalated into an emotional affair. She is jealous of me yet when I try to make them see each other she lives 6 hours away and is married too Unhappily supposedly she told my husband he is her soul mate sends him inspirational messages everyday.
My husband says he is in love with her but loves me and never intended to leave. She says it would tear her heart apart if he left his children. I dont know what to do. She says she is a woman of Jesus on her Facebook. She wont let him go.
My husband says he loves me but wont look me in the eye and yes we still have sex. He used to be such a good man. Please I need advice. First, an affair with an ex, even emotional, is a different animal. Find it, and maybe it can help. We each move through three major phases in life. This is the first comment ive seen regarding rekindling with exes. I have a deep sorted history with my ex whom i was engaged to and lived with. We met when i was fifteen and just going through a horrible and traumatic split between my own parents and his divorcing as well a pastors son and infidelity splitting up his family.
We met inv very conservative boarding school. At any rate, we ended up losing our virginity to eachother, getting pregnant at 18, miscarriage, abandonment by my own parents, subsequient abusive relationship of my moms, me being raped by a co worker…we walked through all this together as best friends first and foremost.
We new every inch of eachother inside and out anf had the kind of chemistry that doesnt fade. Our chemistry wasnt just physical…it was so emotional.
I loved him with every single cell of my being-physical, emotional, spiritual. However, as we grew, he was a young twenty something who grew up in a staunchly conservative home and desperately wanted to party and drink and have fun all the time he had the life of the party personality-always ready for a good time, jokester.
I was a broken girl who also grew up religiously conservative and desperately wanted him to stay home with me because i didnt want to party and we really just matured at different rates. I had pictures of us all over the place. We were literally addicted to one another. I met my husband who was in his junior year of dental school my ex had yet to complete his associates degree and had no clue what was doing with his life-just surviving.
I was the rebellious wander lust free spirit of my family as compared to my rule following sister in dental hygeine school. My family never liked my ex as he was four years older than me when we first got together…and remember i was only 15…they saw him for what he was…an irresponsible kid.
They loved my now husband more than me i think. He admitted to me when dating that he had struggled with porn addiction. But that he was finally free of it. I periodically would ask him if he was feeling tempted or had fallen to it and he would always say no.
When i was just early pregnant with our second child they are three years apart i caught him looking at it. It was a mess for a minute but he was apologetic and we went to therapy. I slowly was regaining trust in him. About a year later my four year old son opened the bathroom door and i was right behind him catching my husband in what he claims was live porn chat. I was devastated and so angry. I threatened to leave. He was again so remorseful, this time did counseling by himself.
Supposedly finally conquered it. About two years later he confessed to me only because his name was going to be printed in the local paper along with all other customers names that he had visited an asian sauna that got busted for prostitution.
He claims to this day that he went for an actual back massage and thats all he got, even tho the police report said there was no actual massage therapy equipment in the place and that no person was going There for legitimate massage treatments. I have stayed because of two reasons and two only.
They love their daddy very much and our family unit. Also i struggle with feeling that it is a sin as a christian to divorce. Over the years my ex and i have communicated briefly…never seeing one another. Its always stayed platonic but i always knew it was dangerous territory as we both had unspoken, unresolved feelings. I then cut off all communication out of respect for my husband.
For a coulple of years. But ove the years i go through times of missing our connection so deeply it pains me-its something my husband and i have simply never had. Husband and i are farther apart than ever…essentially just co parents…and i had a dream about my ex the other night. I have had MANY over the years but i was so struck by this one, likely because of my own marital and personal issues i have lost myself entirely in my marriage and parenthood that i didnt want to wake up.
I contacted him and told him about it. Every detail of our past. How hes always loved me, waited for me, our connections, on and on…emotional issues, why we broke up issues, my marital issues, and umtimately sexual talk that ended in very graphic pictures and talk sexting.
It awoke in me so much i didnt even realize was still there. I didn think i was even capable of feeling. Now i am more confused than i have ever been in 16 years. I told my husband about some of the conversation…obviously not the worst of it…and the worst part is how calm, understanding and sad and regretful he is for his own part. I feel so lost.
Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand how pornography can have detrimental effects on marriage. Please call us at so we can help you! My husband and I have been married only a little over a year. He was 25 when we got married and I was only a month away from turning We only dated 9 months before getting engaged and waited another 9 months before getting married. In hind-sight we rushed it. I never really felt a burning passion for my husband and never really expected to.
He was and is someone I look up to and ultimately feel comfortable with. The problem is and I have talked andthiught through these feelings a hundred times and every time they get more and more confusing …I have two guys who love me deeply …one of whom I care for , but I feel is holding me back from a lot of things I want to do in my life though he tries to support them and the other?
I need him in my life … But the only way he wants to be in my life is as my husband …he really has been trying.. I am a hard worker, smart, detail oriented and a successful person. This created an enemy for me at work and caused it to be horrible as he is a manipulator and used to effect on peoples opinions about me, until I met him. We have lots of common, in our core values, but he is married and I took him as a friend.
I was happy to be able to be his friend and for 2 years we were, until I got engaged! My x guy now, was bad news and I end up ending it, after 11 months. I was emotionally hurt, broken, exhausted and it was horrible. On top of that, my friend, took a step back and was away. I was deeply hurt by his distance but I thought he is giving me a space.
I honestly had a thing for him since ever, but I never look at married men! It is a no situation. Now after broken my engagement slowly my friend came back and I welcomed him.. He then chose to tell me he loves me. I see it, the process you talk about in ALL.. I told him he has a wife and kids, a family he said was always enough and he was accepting life and happy with it.
It created a huge problem for me and at times I became weak and told him I had feelings too. In a way his love, made be heal better, but it also hurt me a lot. We were platonic, not even flirting but the comfort and level of connection we had, made me feel bad. I told him we have to face it, this is NOT good. I know we did nothing wrong but say: He also was regretting telling me big times.
We have a great friendship and we can be blunt, totally honest and still love each other. I do want to help him and I am actually glad I can see it, heal my wounds and say finally he is not the man of my life and though I love him a lot, though I would take him if he was single, he is not and I am not going there.
We are still friends, good ones but how I will know he is not still doing it wrong? I am a positive person and I love caring and giving, naturally.
I know he can have it all! I should say at times I believed he is my other half, we are different but totally the same. He still says I complete him and we have this huge level of understanding. It is like we have the same core, in two personality and when we were friends I used to joke, we must be twins! And with him I have no fears, and feel totally safe.
I never had that before but I also accept now it is not limited to him. I wonder also if I should stop being friends with him? If it is harmful for me? I would hate that but I am OK to do it if it is needed. I want to do the best for me and him. I got married to a woman without 2 weeks after we agreed to date while inlove with some else its now 4yrs in marriage and i am still inlove with the other person.
Our marriage has been on the rocks eversince we got married, thought by now things would be okay but tgey are not. I no longer know what to do cause even when we being intimate i see the other woman. I was in a relationship for 2 years with a sweet person but we were having problems.
The 33 year old stepped in and showed me a moment of happiness. However that was a big mistake! I was sold a dream and a fantasy. I am having more problems than ever before.
But I caused so much hurt and pain. We were suppose to be getting married this year. But I was so broken and so weak. I been married 26 years. We both married young. I was 22 he was On our wedding night we fought. Since my Dad was not around growing up.
I think my husband was a father figure…many years later I meet a guy we just text for years. Then I fell for him. Just were friends or was it more. My marriage to my husband is fighting all the time. I think we grew apart overtime.
He had been both verbally and emotionally abusive for pretty much the whole time with some nice days here and there. I begged cried and pleaded for him to please stop being mean, ignoring me, disrespecting me, walking on me, hurting me in every way imaginable except physically. A year ago I started talking to a man online and while at first we were friends, about six months ago, we realized we were falling for each other. Please, any advice helps. Help me please I am so confused.
Please give me some advixe. Hi my name is Samantha I am 20 yeara old my husband and I were married for almost a year been together for 3 years but he was deported back to Mexico and is not able to come back legalized, me and my husband been threw thick and thin together, im his first serious relationship and his first love and he is my guy i would do anything for that i love to death, we had a still born, we have been threw hell to be with eachother but its jus at the point were i cant.
Help i love my husband but he wont change i told him millions of times about what i want…. I love touching, feeling, caressing, hugging and kissing. My wife just lays there like a corpse and will not have oral sex either. My heart aches for love. I want to be her right now.
I want our bodies to be one. I been married 8 years from now…but after he bring me here at usa.. Been married to my husband for 14 years with 2 preteens. We carry a lot of pain from our past. From the hurtful things we did to eat other as teenagers. Seems our past will alway haunt us. It always comes up in arguments. My husband is a great father and provider. Just really bad about verbally respecting me and the pain a carry from him stepping out of our marriage is everlasting.
Because financial reasons we lived under the same roof but was separated. I started to emotionally move on. Started going out with the ladies and enjoying myself. Someone I was madly in love with in the past. I wanted a family more than anything. Just out of a relationship as well. So we exchange numbers that night.
Short story, became friends again. Was helping each other thru our break ups and feels started back right where they left off. We got together one night and it was a night full of passion. We have the best relationship. Talk , respect , romance and it feels like we truly know each other. He pledes me back. And I thought I would leave this passionate guy who took my heart alone.
So I told my husband I broke it off with him. And kept doing what I do with the other guy on the side. In the back of my mind I thought my husband was just going to fail.
Something needs to change and I really need o make a decision on what I want. Guy number 2 is wanting more from me now. I do truly care for both men. I married my husband six years ago. I did not love him at the time of marriage, but decided to get married because 1 in the ten years preceding my marriage, my parents had become increasingly derisive about my age and the need to settle down, and 2 my husband was the first man I slept with. The Sunday-school girl in me felt tremendous guilt and thought marriage would appease the guilt.
My husband is a good person. I respect his strong sense of honor and responsibility. He also has deep insecurities. He will not undertake any potentially confrontational tasks such as car purchasing, mortgage discussions, utility connections, tax filings, or anything that involves third parties. His insecurities may also contribute to performance anxiety, but we have a sexless marriage, no kids, and he believes mid-thirties are too old to have kids now. I care about him a good deal and want to love him.
I feel like I spend considerable time and money arranging activities which he invariably finds fault with. About three years ago, I realized how vulnerable my marriage was when my male colleague called about a work issue and we ended talking late into the night. I could joke and debate with my colleague without worrying about hurting his feelings and it was a relief to not feel emotionally drained after a conversation.
I enjoyed the conversation so much that I continued to have long phone discussions for three months before my guilt became such that I changed jobs and asked my husband to attend marital counseling with me. He refused because of the expense and his strong belief that counselors are no-value-add-money pits. A year ago, I met another man.
Again, it was a relief to talk to someone and not feel emotionally drained. Again I struggled with a considerable degree of self-loathing for months. Nevertheless, I continue to consider divorce because of the hopeless sadness I feel when I contemplate walking through the remainder of my life with my husband and without even the consolation of children. I met someone during my temporary work assignment. I came back to my country and he stays in that country where we met.
Me and my husband already have issues before i met him. Now, its making me more confuse. My husband is a good man. But i dont think i love him anymore. I also have 1 kid.
I need your advise. I apologize for a long story but I feel I must tell it because I need help and have nowhere to go. I grew up in a very sheltered household as an only-child and went to an all-boys school up until college.
I never interacted with girls at all until college. I joined a church and became very involved with it, and met a woman 5 years my senior and we dated for a little over a year and a half, at which point I discovered her visa would expire within a few months she was an immigrant. Being inexperienced and afraid of the pain of a break up I decided we should get married, and for some crazy reason both of our parents gave us approval.
We were both students and during the entire four years we were essentially living off of student loan leftovers and support from parents. About two years into the marriage, I started to feel like maybe this was a stupid decision.
I think we both just latched on to whoever came our way. In addition to that, we have lots of issues. Her family and friends drive me insane. When I try to discuss an issue I either get hostility and she explodes with the issues she has with me but for some reason never tried communicating, or she plays a pouting guilt trip and then giggles like a little kid when I take back what I said.
On occasion she will recognize the issue and say she will work on it, but then never does or temporarily fixes it and relapses a short time later. I made a list of goods and bads in our relationship, and aside from her being kind and supportive, the list of bads is exponentially longer and a constant source of stress and irritation for me.
Now we live separately due to work, and I feel our futures are going separate ways. My degree, qualifications, and language skill limit me to working overseas. I am unqualified to work in the US, and even if I were I refuse to because life is much better for me here healthcare, etc. My wife had planned on getting a degree and acquiring the language skill to work here with me, but that fell through and she cannot work here, and I will not be able to support her on one salary.
My future is here overseas, and her future is back home with her family store. So here I am, wondering why I got married before getting my life together, perfectly content being alone here in a foreign country.
And then I randomly met one girl and dropped my guard slightly nothing physical , and within a couple of hours I felt like I had known this person my entire life. As if I had met her at some point in the past. Even though I already have so many times. My life has been one that has been controlled by fear and loneliness.
I have always felt unloved and unwanted and fear of being alone has lead me into many relationships. I crave being talked to. I crave the intimacy of conversation and time spent together. When I first dated my wife all the red flags were flying in my mind.
She is extremely introverted and damaged psychologically. I was extremely lonely in the dating period but married her because we had become sexually active and I was fearful no one would ever come to really love me for who I am. We separated our seven year of marriage because my loneliness within the marriage lead me to seeking relationship out of the home. After seven years apart and two short term relationships and her in four relationships I turned to religion and once more married my first wife.
We have been together now 13 years and once again I am suffering mightily from loneliness. I have come to the point of almost hating her for leaving me so lonely. I want out of our marriage even if that means I never ever love again. I made a terrible mistake by choosing a woman who cannot physically make herself talk to me. What pains me in this is there will once again be fear on my part.
Fear of loneliness and fear of spending the rest of my life alone. I have been suicidal for at least three years maybe up to six years because of loneliness. Staying with her will only strengthen my resolve to commit suicide.
Leaving her a second time hurts like hell because it destroys me and rips my heart apart to hurt anyone. I can get you since I have always felt lonely in my marriage too.
I found out it was the original family wounding that caused these feelings. Now I stated loving myself more and doing lots of things, connecting with collegues, friends… My male bff got cancer and passed away, so I was really left totally desparate since he was a conversation partner in all matters. Which my husband refuses to be. He does not want to share his inner feelings. I have been married for 3 years, but in the relationship for 11 and living together for 7.
We met very young and moved in together when we were It started as just some fun, but the more we talked the more I fell for him. We have so much in common and share so many interests that my husband has no interest in. I have fallen completely in love with him. The other guy has waited on me, but has recently gotten into a relationship with a girl. But nothing has really changed with us except I do not near from him all the time now.
He has no idea that I do actually love him. I have one child not sure what to do. Since then every year I travel to where my boyfriend lives for month to spend time with him. My boyfriend is not an easy person, sometimes we argue together, but we have a great sex , he has been waiting for 5 years that I get my divorce to marry me, but I feel so guilty to leave my husband. My husband is a really good man and he loves me a lot, but I have no sexual attraction toward him, and we have sex together every 1 or2 weeks.
My husband is very passive, type B personality and my boyfriend is very active type A personality. Iv been married for almost 4 years, recently we seperated for 6 months and I met someone else who I feel is a better fit for my life. She has a great personality and very attractive, but I do still love my wife so I told her to come back home along with our 1 year old daughter.
I tried leaving the other woman but something always keeps bringing me back to her. My mind tells me to stay with my family and work on our marriage but my heart tells me to leave and go with the other woman and live happily ever after. Only after reading so many things online statistics say it might not work out with the new woman.. We were just almost 5 months in our relationship when i got pregnant. My husband then, agreed but, he had asked me ways to deceived my family.
He even asked if we could fake it. But the only normal thing we did as a couple was having sex. We never connected emotionally. We lived with my parents. For the past three years, he was a student for a year and a half and was never with me and our kid more than a month straight.
After that, he leave us for an ojt for a year. Im certain, he missed the growing up of our child. Now, our son is three years old and during those short times my husband had a strong bond with our child.
Likewise with the kid who always asks for his father. And it seems, my husband forgot everything from the past and treated me good.
But i am more on off. I was always confused with him. I even remembered my ex and thought i was still inlove with him. I cried for my ex even i already have a husband. Now, Im talking to a guy online for a month now. And i developed a certain degree of attraction to him. But im not certain if the feeling is mutual. However, he said he likes me though im difficult. Im excited about the idea. I always thought about this new man. I even began writing to my diary again because i was alarmed that i felt so vulnerable with this stranger.
Now, I know what we have or will have is a different concern and not the most important thing here. My confusion is about me and my husband. I really wanted to be free but i do not know how to start saying it to him. And my son, i dont want him to get hurt and drag to this hurtful situation. He loves his father so much. But i cant feel anything with my husband now. No connection at all.
I will start with me. I think I have a problem with relationships in general because I get this emotional affairs nothing physical even in my previous relationships… So the story with my husband.
Everything happened very quickly I fell in love and everything was perfect , however after one and half year of marriage something went wrong and we became very cold with each other its like we didnt care for each other and then he cheated on me. We split up for a while, then we decided to try and fix our relationship. We did it for a while 2 years and now Evrrything is repeating i found someone that I really like, he is smart and we click together perfectly however..
How do I fix this? Is marriage all about fixing things all life. But nothing seems right anymore. Hi, my name is Ryan and I have been with my wife for 12 years now. I have been with her since I was 15 and we just got married a few months ago. In the 12 year I have never cheated on her or even thought about it.
Our relationship is good but there is a problem. Back when I was in high school I had fallen for a girl in my class. We would talk on off and on but had no physical contact. We lost contact for a few years and in that time she had a kid and was in an unhappy relationship. We started talking again a few years ago still no physical contact and my wife then girlfriend found out.
After she found out I stop talking to the girl and moved on. Well she is back and I have been talking to her again dally and I have been meeting with her here and there still not sexual contact but I can see it going that way. Due to this I have been shutting out my wife who is causing her to be more suspicious and causing us to fight a lot more.
There is no perfect relationship…every marriage has its own unique set of obstacles. Many people leave their husbands or their wives because stronger feelings pull them to another relationship…but when they get to that other relationship, the majority of the time it ends very badly. We have some great tools and programs on our website for situations just like yours. I have been with my wife for 17 years, and married for We have a four year old son together. She is an alcoholic, pill popper, and suffers from depression.
Her family sucks, and has always made her and our life very hard. She probably would have moved on to someone new even if you had. I am sorry if that seems harsh, but we have seen it time and time again. It may seem cliche at this point, but it is not too late to make your marriage stronger and healthier and start treating each other with respect.
I am married for 23 years now, with a loving wife and 2 children.. It was love at first site. I used to wait for her every day, follow her upto to her college and back.
She is to take a bus and go to her village 20km away. Sometimes I used to follow her upto her house on my mobike. I am from India. I was totally shattered and heart broken and felt, I can never get married in my life. The time was too short, probably 2 odd months, after I saw her. Some consolation was, she was to be married in a good family, so I felt happy for her. It was a hopeless situation for me caste wise, no job, no social standing, Indian social conditions, etc etc.
But she stayed in my heart and she will, till I die. Now in , after 24 years or so, my friend called and put her on the phone. He is from her same village and married her friend 2nd marriage. I always used to think, I should somehow see her atleast once before I die and tell her, I truly loved her. But this phone call has given such happiness to me, I could not believe it.
From that time, we kept in touch over the phone. Remember to keep it light at this stage, unless of course she enjoys it and orders you to smack her behind harder! If this happens, great, but try not to go overboard. You never want her to feel uneasy or scared of the experience.
If you start spanking her like a maniac you could quickly turn her off spanking forever, and no amount of begging or pleading will make her change her mind. You may notice when you put her over your lap the first time, and subsequent times as well, that she will probably have a big smile or grin on her face.
Women will often do this when they are a little nervous or embarrassed so it is your job to make sure she is comfortable every step of the way. One smack that is too hard will not ruin everything, although many in a row while ignoring her pleas to stop very well could. Women are not delicate little china dolls like some men think.
Most can take way more pain then you ever could. Remember the main goal is to make sure she is happy and comfortable. Do this and you will most likely be able to spank her again.. One other thing def initely worth mentioning is the use of implements, like a hairbrush, paddle, belt, cane.. Again, take it slow.
Again, once you turn someone off it is very difficult or impossible to turn them back on again. The same applies to positions. Assuming all has gone well up to this point, for future sessions you can begin to experiment by spanking her a little harder and longer then before, and possibly trying new positions.. Explore roles such as the naughty secretary and the boss, or school girl and teacher, slave and master, you get the idea.
While a woman is in a role she is usually more open to try new things, and she will be having fun at the same time. This may be true but I have always found it best to err on the side of caution, then to take things too fast and ruin it, then sit back and complain that there are no women out there that like to be spanked. This guide is not some magical way to turn every woman you meet into a spanko, but more of a way to have the average woman at least be willing to participate.
Look at it the same as riding a bike. They will probably crash and the next time you mention learning how to ride a bike again, they will probably not be interested for some strange reason.
On the flip side, by just mentioning the word spanking to your new girlfriend she might throw herself over your knee and say how she has been a very naughty girl! If things move a lot faster then what I have described in this guide, then by all means, go with the flow.
She may already be right before your eyes. Your approach to the subject is probably the best way to handle the situation, and I will definitely be trying it! Before the s turned male-female relationships upside down, girls sort of halfway expected to get spanked by a boy sooner or later. Almost every girl I dated in high school told me how she got spanked at home. For example, one said me her dad used his hand. Another admitted her mother used a hairbrush.
Both eventually wound up across my knee. Although I spanked the first one impulsively, after we talked, the second actually took her own pants down without being asked! I was with a guy once who threatened to give me a spanking because I spoke rudely to him and cursed. He was very serious and at first my feelings were hurt I was so embarassed and wanted to cry.
But when I got home I started replaying what he said to me and his tone and the fact that I as actually scared at that moment, and it turned me on so badly. I never cursed at him again but sometimes I would want to try it to see if he would actually give me a spanking, at the same time I was scared of having my butt smacked hard as a punishment.
But I wanted it as well. He was a very dominant man and I never found another man like him. The female I previously described as voluntarily taking her pants down had also used profanity with me. How about writing directly to me and chat. I have to say your article is the best one I have ever read on this subject. And I have been here in the life style for a long time. Your approach is perfect and works to not ruin a relationship should the other party be opposed to the idea.
As for me it did not happen like that and my first experience was non-consensual and real, very luckily, I was not kicked to the curb as it were and actually was told that if I was going to discipline her I should do it right, at which time she lowered her jeans and put herself back over my knee. She ended up being my wife and my love.
Now as I said, this was a fluke, a quirk, a chance meeting of two spankos and hardly ever happens this way! Thanks and keep up the good work. When it comes to spanking, there is a natural interaction between men and woman. Secretly, she wants to know how he would do it.
One way of getting around the asking for it dilemma is to approach the subject indirectly. This may involve bringing up childhood experiences — especially if they occurred when the woman was in her late teens. The behavior or other woman might also prove useful in this regard. Then, there always those old movies that included spanking scenes. In this regard, it is worth pointing out that women sometimes ask to be spanked without verbalizing their request.
It is more important to find a man that cares about you than it is to find a man that wants to spank you. As with sex, spanking has to be about the woman rather than the man. Otherwise, it can be rape by other means.
We were in her office talking non business but discussing a woman we knew through work or similar It was almost 20 years ago so memory on it is not totally clear.
The woman we discussed was a brat or acted similar either, though I was not vocal about my love of spanking I was that time both to voice my opinion and see a reaction if any. Sometimes a woman can wind up over your knee when you least expect it.
For a short time I was involved in a very sick relationship fraught with violence and alcoholism. I got out of that relationship scared to death to touch another woman after that. About a year later I met this extremely pretty little Norwegian blond — with an absolutely beautiful behind — at an Al Anon meeting. The story of my life. We sat down on a bed and I gently pulled her across my lap.
I think I brought my hand down on her gorgeous behind about three times, after which I pushed her off and walked around the apartment shaking like a human earthquake.
Over time, however, I became jaded to this behavior. One night years later, just for fun, I pulled her across my lap, slid down her pants and gave her hard smacks on each cheek. She smiled and laughed the whole time. I wanted to marry her, but after some discussion she convinced me that our lives were too complicated already without adding marriage into the mix. We remained close as we searched for that right person.
I soon started dating the gal I eventually married. On one of my first visits to her house, to which she gave me wrong directions, I playfully took her into the bedroom, put her over my knee, pulled down her pants and spanked her as if all women just love this treatment for any type of misdeed to include issuing erroneous directions.
Now that I was headed for marriage and moving to Vanillaland, things had to change. But after 17 years of marriage I began to miss my old spanking buddy and all the fun we had.
I tried to get my wife to spank me, which she did a few times. I loved walking around the rest of the day with a little sting in my butt knowing it had come from her. But she seems to want no part of this, so I stopped pushing the issue. She whines and fusses the whole time, but she still complies.
