elmosmom99 I feel the same as you. We haven't even talked about it. I found out 11 months ago and thought we were dooing fine but I found cell phone calls to her work number right before Christmas and I'm numb now. I really could care less if he left right now. He's been unemployed this last year and I've been home on a disability we are together in the house but we don;t talk much about us. We are broke and have 2 kids at home so I guess he'll skip VD too! 20 years ago today I gave birth to my son Sean. I guess I will always have a Valintine. Happy Valitines Day from me to you. Hang in there!! CrazyHeart422
Hurts have taught me never to give up loving Be willing to take another risk and chance, otherwise tomorrow may be empty.

I love to give gifts on every gift-giving occasion. More accurately, I like to give thoughtful gifts that my woman can never guess because I have taken clues from weeks or months prior. I love to watch her response of surprise, delight, and feel the closeness afterward.

However, in my marriage of 22 years, I missed Easter about 6 years in because I was

I usually love the gift thing, too, but now when those special dates come up, to me it's more of a chore than anything. When I found out really crappy news 3 days prior to our 40th anniversary last July, it devastated me - he'd been lying about something big the entire time we'd even been in individual counseling, and I found out while trying to do something extra special for our anniversary. Sort of took the fun out of the occasion. I say if you feel like doing something, fine; and if you don't, THEN SCREW IT, just let it blow past without a thought. Nowdays I do what I truly feel like doing for this.
