2.I confessed that I cheated on my husband 3 times not sexually and we are trying to work things through. What does it mean when he doesn't kiss me but will have sex with me?
A:I think you will get a different opinion depending on who you ask. So, I can only share my own opinion. I imagine that your husband finds it easy to satisfy his own physical needs by having sex with you. But he no longer feels affectionate towards you. Kissing, hugging, cuddling, even a peck on the cheek shows affection and even love. If your all physical relationship with him is only sex, then it seems the sex is for his own needs. It is not to show love or affection for you.Read the full answer here.

A:You could have a bad bruise from the fall. If the pain is internal you may want to see a doctor.Read the full answer here.
4. What causes your foot to hurt so bad you can't walk on on it?
