Been in an interesting marriage to say the least for 6 yrs now,we've had lots of ups & downs...but lately with my work stress and everything else my marriage is starting to become a casualty. When we argue the stuff really hits the fan and many things come out which are very hurtful and it makes me want to just leave and get it over with,but every time I start to pack up my stuff and head towards the door something seems to come over me that makes me stay. Maybe she has a spell on me or something,I can't figure it out^

smh - pack your bags and go where? Is that how you handle tension? When the going gets tough, you try to run?

Sounds like you guys are overdue for a vacation. I always schedule a getaway for the wife and myself annually. Its nice to escape civilization or enjoy a change of scenery to rev the engines and keep the fire burning.... Dont walk away dude, look at her and think of what attracted you to her in the first place.

Do you think she has that much power?

It sounds more like your conscience. What have you done to work on the marriage?

It's a long story but it's not that simple,it's not when things get tough I try to run. It's been a long stressful road,going through things that most people wouldn't even deal with but we hung in. As far as vacations,did those didn't do much. It's not the superficial that will help us with the relationship...perhaps tests like this help more;

Well she does dabble in a bit of 'witchcraft'...but as far as my conscience,it's pretty clean for the most part. She could stand to look at hers once in awhile too tho;

The impression i got from your post was that the stress level (from work & everything else) is the catalyst for the rift in your marriage. Anyway, good luck to the both of you but it'll be a shame to call it quits because of "stress." I think (not trained to offer advice so feel free to ignore) the way to resolve problems in a marriage is by communication. Now over the years, i've learned to be tactful with my delivery but all in all, it works.

opps. just previewed my post and saw your comment about witchcraft to virgode...sorry but i'm so outta here.

I don't know why it still amazes me that so many unhappily married people are on the internet. I guess it's a good place for them to vent since it's anonymous.
