Hello, The truth is that you will never know unless your husband decides to be upfront about the details to gain your trust. One thing is for sure though, not knowing and having this uncertainty in your heart will push your husband and you further away from being able to repair the marriage. The... more

If I understand you correctly, this "maybe-boyfriend" has done a partial break up, and wants to maintain a partial relationship. Is that ok with you? And, if it is, what does it cost you? He says he's "done" but still wants the connection. That seems to leave him free to explore other options... more

Ultimately it is only your partner who can decide whether to stop name calling or not.I would take very seriously that she doesn't show any willingness to hear and understand your point of view.In a relationship in which one person claims the right to verbally abuse the other, there isn't much... more

When a woman makes the decision to terminate a pregnancy it is never taken lightly. Whatever your reasons are, you are in control of your body and your decisions. With that said, it is a decision with many mixed emotions and anger is one of them. Most importantly, you need to look at that anger and accept it as it appears you are taking out on others. Seeking counseling after a termination is a very helpful thing to do and following up with the agency or physician would be a good idea to seek referrals. I hope this was helpful.
