Do people tend to remain close to their siblings after marriage/ getting into a serious relationship? Or does life tend to take over and losing touch is somewhat normal?

Since my marriage my sister and I have also actually gotten a lot closer. I think it’s common to lose touch at first while you’re figuring out your relationship/marriage as that’s what happened once I got married. I’m 9 months into my marriage and my sister and I are closer than ever now!


My younger brother and I have always been close. I got into a serious relationship 1.5 years ago and still hang out w him at least once a week or not more. Also my partner loves my bro so that def helps


My relationship with my brother was spotty well into adulthood. It has gotten so much stronger since he got married, and then even stronger once he had a kid. We are now in touch more regularly than ever before.

Haven’t seen or spoken to my brother since1996. But that’s more about how different we are as people, not about losing touch after marriage.

Hear that. I think brotherhood can go either way. Resentment or fellowship. I’ve had rocky points with my brother as well; working to keep communication open and supportive. Wishing you the best as you surround yourself with people YOU enjoy! 🍻

Turns out, all of my relationship troubles magically disappeared when both of us started working today. No relationship can stand being around one another 24/7. 🤨🤣


12 years and my partner won't do chores. Vent vent vent. I make 80% of our income and pay 80% of expenses. I'm also tidy but hate cleaning. Partner works 20-30 hours/ week no kids and is a slob. 3 months ago made chore list, got them to sign on the list the 50/50 split that it was fair. 3 months later I've been doing my chores they haven't done any. Brought it up today and was accused that the list was unfair they refuse and they dont have time because they must "work to subsidize your expenses"

Ladies, what would you do if you find out your boyfriend/husband has attempted to cheat on you? (Hypothetical question)

Someone you love. How extreme would you go?


At my uncles wedding in Madrid I remember lying down on the grass in the courtyard after their first dance and crying, my Dad came and saw me, laid down in his suit beside me and asked what was wrong.

“I know my boyfriend wouldn’t dance with me like that at our wedding”

And we just lay there as I cried, and then got up. Had a drink.

Said boyfriend left years ago, and now I have a wonderful man who just asked me what type of dance lessons I want for our wedding next year.

Don’t give up.


Anyone crushing over their boss??


Met guy on Bumble. He started off really strong with sending me audio messages, pictures and then randomly it sort of stopped. We are supposed to have our first date tomorrow morning and he texted me now asking if it still works. Feel like it’s weird how he went from intense to nothing and not sure if I should entertain the date? What do y’all think? Give him a chance or no?


Met this guy through friends a few years back. He made me feel really special, told me he was going through a bad patch with his gf at that point. Things happened between us in a couple of months and


If someone said (over text) “happy thanksgiving to and for you” what would you think they meant? To be clear the intent was “Happy Thanksgiving to you” as a greeting and “happy Thanksgiving for you” as in, I am giving thanks for you.


My boyfriend cheated on me. We’re trying to work through it, but it’s has been very hard. I’m afraid I will never trust him again. I’m more afraid that I might hurt myself.


My fiancé will NOT stop talking about her ex. After I found out they were texting arguing she justified it by saying it was about the dogs and not them. Even though Her social media is full of his pics. She still sends him $50 a month for dog food, still goes to work right by his place and suspiciously needs keys. I try to bring it up and I get dismantled for being too mean and making “false accusations.” How much more obvious can it be?

Anyone have experience "moving for love"? I'm talking moving from a large city to a midsize city, somewhere you never thought you'd move to, but makes sense to move there because that's where her family is and we want to start a family soon after getting married.

Doing a little reflecting and I realized I've always fumbled opportunities with potential dates. Either I didn't make a move when I should have, or I waited too long and the moment passed. Any advice to prevent this?
