We covered everything. All of our hopes and dreams and wants. But I feel as if he lied about most of it and now we're unhappy because we want different things. Before we got married we wanted the same things supposedly.

I wanted to make sure I did, I purchased Dr. Phil's book "Relationship Rescue" and asked my husband every question in that book and it's a lot of them. I knew he was spoiled and had someone do everything for him. I just did not know to the extent, my DH had no idea how to feel out a money order, write a check, never been in a bank, never made a meal, never made his bed, and the list of basic things just go on. that was 10 years ago and I would not trade him in for the world.

I was friends with my husband before I married him so there have been few surprises. But that doesn't mean there isn't excitement.

We were so young.  We had no idea who we were or the *right* questions to ask.

people change.  I remember talking about our lives, our children.  I am not the parent I thought I'd be.  I am not the wife I thought I'd be.  I don't find the same things important.  A lot of my views have changed.  His haven't.

Not at all! My husband and I got married after dating for a year even though her was deployed for the year so we had only actually been on a few dates. In our defense, we did grow up together so we had knoweach other since we were 10. I think we are the exception though because it has worked out for us and we have only grown closer in the 4 1/2 years we have been married.

Obviously not the first time around or we'd still be married. But after 3 kids and being home for about 9 years this fool was offered a fantastic job opportunity that would have  made our lives soo much easier, & he turned it down. When I asked why, he said he didn't want any responsibility! I was like HUH? I told him, I wish you had told me that 3 kids ago, we wouldn't have had any.

Yes, We were together 8yrs, lived together for 7 before we got married. I can't imagine there isn't a topic we haven't covered. We are very open with each other.
