  • Yes, but I'm glad I've stayed. I love my husband very much, but we've had those times where we've been very close to separating.

  • No, my husband is an amazing father and my best friend. I can't imagine doing this without him.

  • Yes, I was stressed, hormonal and just uptight because he was annoying me. Got over that hump and we're still together, just couldn't be apart.

  • Yes. I hate our relationship more with each passing day. He is an ok father and provider, just a terrible husband.

  • Occasionally, normally it's because we're not communicating well.

  • My husband was horrible when the kids were young, he didn't go to school activities, attend conferences, he would say “I have 2 days off a week & I'm going to do what I want" Used to piss me off! One day I set him down and told him how much he was losing out on and the boys will grow up fast with no bonding to him and how would he feel about that! After that he was overly involved, kids are 24 & 20, and they're very close! 27 yrs of marriage and he's awesome! My best friend, stick with it, it's just one of those lousy hurdles you have to cross. Just makes you stronger!

  • I think that at some point everyone feels like husband is a chef and worked 100 hours last week. i never thought that was possible til i met him..and it gives me a dose of what it could be like..but weeks like that are rare and it makes me appreciate him when he is home...Men can be complete idiots, but we have a family and children and i wouldnt want to be without him.

  • Yes, in fact earlier today I was. I also can't help but wonder how those every other free weekends would be. But I made vows, I do have a great husband who loves me - so I'm going to say as long as the good days outweigh the bad.
