I find it weird most of your tips are about putting yourself first and then “have sex even if you don’t feel up to it”

Um, what?

I don’t care how happy it makes him, I’m not a hole in a mattress. No one should EVER feel obligated to have sex if they don’t want to just to keep their husband around.

Sorry I know you’re trying to share your advice but all I got was that you seriously rate yourself and feel annoyed your husband didn’t think you were as amazing… Just coz you’re prettyand your   family did some stuff doesn’t mean your marriage is going to be amazing

MrsKing212:  That was exactly what I was thinking. Of what relevance is the bragging at the start of the post?

Thank you for your advice! It can be hard to figure out what is a mountain vs a hill Sometimes.

Supernurse: Men will do the bare basics of what’s expected of them? Nope. Maybe that’s your ex, but my father, my husband and many other men I know who work incredibly hard at every aspect of their lives would beg to differ.

OP, I’m sorry about what happened to you and your husband. I hope things settle amicably between the two of you.

The advice isn’t bad but I’m still asking of what relevance all that bragging had to do with anything. I don’t see how he could say you were a doormat when you clearly consider yourself quite the catch.

Supernurse:  I’m sorry your marriage didn’t work out.  I’m not really sure how relevant your family history was to the story, setting the scene maybe?  But I do agree with #1 (not so sure about #5), it’s imperative to have a life outside of your relationship/marriage.  

All the best to you and your family…

I skipped the parenthetical, I read the longer posts more quickly, so I have no basis to be offended or put off.  The one point that stood out for me and that I agree with is make sure that if you’re marriage minded your man is too.  If you’re waiting indefinitely because your man isn’t marriage minded and you’re forcing him, then that may backfire down the road.  I get it, I agree.  Also, have your own life.  I get it, I agree.

In my mind, a doormat wouldn’t have cut ties and started to date around when things weren’t going her way.  Sometimes marriages just don’t work out.  Doesn’t mean you specifically did something wrong.  Things’ll only get better from here.  Good luck.

Supernurse:  Sorry, I couldn’t read past all of the grandstanding in the 2nd paragraph. I guess it’s a good thing you’re so wonderful, you should have no problem finding a new partner.

Supernurse:  I thought something was going to come out of this post?  You sound like a doormat.
