    There are 2 sides to every story guys! I'm not saying that one side is wrong and the other is not but I don't really think this is the proper forum for this type of discussion. I would not want my husband dicussing serious marital issues on this type of site. Or any other site for that matter. This lady, one of our sisters, may be a member of this site and find everyone discussing her marriage or she may join the site soon. How would you feel if you were in her shoes and found your husband discussing private marital issues w/ all of us? We are here to offer advice, I agree, but I think we are operating outside our "scope of practice". We are not being fair to this woman.

    Someone wrote on this forum that the average in AZ is 24.00. I am not sure if that is with or without differentials. Hopefully someone can enlighten.

    Um this man said he was a sex addict?????? Well duh, no wonder she acts how she does. She has probably been hurt so many times by this man who is supposed to be her husband and be faithful to her that she probably just can't forgive him. Maybe that is why she is not into the church thing. It's hard to be in church when you harbor hate for someone...and I bet a part of her hates him. Their marriage is probably too far gone to ever be saved. I know if it happened to me I could never feel the same love again. Yeah she probably is in nursing so she can leave him. Boy, she must be terrribly stressed....nursing school, marriage problems, 3 kids, one with a disability. People do change, but sometimes it's just too late.

    I still wish the OP and his wife the best. I am happy he was happy to turn things around, FOR HIS own sake.

    Even if his wife makes another decision, your life change is NOT in vain.

    No, there was an earlier one which made the original reference to the problem. I didn't think posts ever got deleted, but I guess they do.

    I've been reading this post from the begiinning and that's when he made mention of his addiction.

    In reference to someone talking about this man discussing private marriage business on here... This probably is just me, but I think it's a little weird two men have recently come to this forum to do just that. (The last one was about his wife's drug addiction and her stealing meds.) Is it just that people find nurses easy to talk to, or what? I mean, I think it's really cool people feel they can open up a bit in here under psuedo-anonimity and we can all offer our advice and opinions. It seems weird, though, to have two men who are so open about their problems in such a short period of time, both who seem to be receiving the short end of the marriage stick. (I'm sure if their wives posted, they'd appear to be on the other short end of the stick! It's that old "perspective" problem.)

    I haven't been around this board long enough to know. Is this a common occurence?

    First of all, congratulations on staying sober for one year. I am very proud of you and pray you will have 50+ years of sobriety.

    I hope you continue with counseling and receiving the help you need. But it sounds like your wife is finished with your marriage. She probably cannot get over the 14 years of living with your addiction. She is also probably making excuses she thinks you will believe inorder to leave without hurting your feelings too much.
    And this is post # 25:

    Either we have some really psychic nurses here or there's an earlier post that's gone missing.

    Ok. I see what you're saying. I wasn't looking at it like that.

    :yeahthat: I agree with you KScott, it does seem a little weird that we have had two males share their marriages on this board. I personally would be very upset if my husband were to do this. It is very hard to know what actually is going on in this marraige, since there are two sides to every story.

    A lot of people find it easier to tell complete strangers their problems because they don't want anyone they know to know about their problems. So that is why they come here lol!

    And I think we have adequately addressed this poster's issue. After he deleted so much of the original post, this thread is too confusing to even follow. Good luck to the OP and thanks everyone for your great advice.
