Often think about not being married to my partner anymore
I really want a divorce!
Only staying for the kids
We schedule a weekly lunchtime hookup since we both work from home
I’m pregnant and I hate being touched by my man
I miss how my husband and I use to be before we had kids. Now we always so tired.
I once caught my dad smiling at my mom’s picture on his phone. Cutest thing ever! ❤️
Husband complains he doesn’t get enough attention but kids and work are sucking every oz
Husband referred to breastfeeding as time I’m “relaxing” and I’m so pissed
My partner cheated on me, I stayed so I could win and prove I was better than the third party
I really don’t care that my kids prefer their dad over me to do bedtime. It’s more me time
I didn’t understand irreconcilable differences before... but I sure do now!
my husband does way more housework and is more organized than me.
I always fall for the fixer uppers
I’m so tired of resenting my partner. I wish something would change.
I think about having sex with my ex and wish i could just one more time
My MIL needs to unload her sh*t on a therapist, not my husband. Seriously stop!
I’m so tired of repeating myself. To both the adults and the children in this house. Are they all goldfish?
I HATE cleaning up after my boyfriend since I have to clean up after our child all day
I am over my marriage. He doesn’t want to improve himself ... always complains.
I have such an incredible husband, but I can’t talk about it because I feel guilty around friends who dont.
