go take care of your parents. If he doesnt stand by you well then you need to make some harsh decisions about your life path.

Well, your parents raised you. Go and take care of them. Divorce the cheating husband. If he's being cold and unsupportive, well, that's just sub-human. I can't imagine how hard this is for you.

Nope, it's for his own selfish reasons. Sex, cooking, sex, laundry, SEX...

Their insurance won't cover it & it's pretty pricey here in nyc ...
