  1. Well, I didn't realize the situation was that bad... Reading your replies I feel like there is no solution.. I tried to talk to him yesterday, it went pretty bad. Really bad, it was definitely a big argument (that I was trying to avoid..) but I guess it has been useful. Abt kids, he said he'd prefer to talk about it when it's really the moment. That he knows I do want to have kids but right now it's just not the priority at all and that it's useless to worry now abt that. Abt ramadan he apologized and said he really wanted to do it for me but just thinking about it made it feel like
  2. "There are some people that many conflict resolution tactics don't work on because they can recognize what you're trying to do and realize that if they lose an argument (ie. lawyers), then they lose power in the relationship, respect among their peers, or whatever. This why they pull out all the "dirty laundry" or keep a list of all the things that someone has done to them or feel the need to tear them down by pointing out past negative situations where that person did something to anger them/cause problems/impact the relationship."

  3. Hi wiseman2, I cried when I read "homesick and lonely", I really do feel lonely. I only have 1 'true' friend here who considers me more than "the friend's wife". I speak to my friends and to my family regularly but I don't want to worry them about my issues... And honestly I feel a little bit ashamed not being able to manage it myself..

  4. Hi abitbroken, thank you for taking the time to reading everything and replying. I know the way I described it it seems like I don't know him well enough, but I really think I do know the most important things about him. He's so kind, funny, honest, helpful,...It's just that...I don't know, I feel like he "changed his mind" abt few things, I really don't know.. Sometimes I think that maybe before living together he thought I was more "worth the efforts", maybe now I'm not that special anymore to make sacrifices for me or whatever, I don't know... It's true that we were both so "busy" wit
  5. Hi, This is my first time asking for advice on a forum, so I'm not quite sure what to start with.. I'm 27, I've been married to a wonderful man for a little more than 7 months. We are from different countries /cultures and we met online (at work, we both used to work for the same multinational but in different countries). Before getting married, we never lived together, we met frequently, but it was a long distance relationship. He converted to my religion so that we could be together and he said he would make efforts about it (stop eating pork, doing Ramadan...). It was hard and being a
