  1. i have learned a lot also thay we don’t belong together. and we been trying to make it work cause we have history and we feel comfort around one another.

  2. I am married with two kids and they are the only things that make we want to go home at night. I feel clumsy, humiliated and I walk on egg shells around my husband because the smallest thing can trigger him off and he will virtually scream the house down. He doesn’t care where we are, he will just let loose and tell me off. Then after that, he will still sulk for days.
