This message board -- "Choosing To Stay" -- is for posts focusing on the challenges of staying in a sexless marriage and for the support of those specifically endeavoring to do just that. Anyone who posts here must respect that this is a valid choice for anyone dealing with an SM.
Thus the "rules" for this board are pretty simple:
If you are in an SM and choosing to staying in the marriage, you may post here. Post your questions, advice, struggles, and -- we hope to hear -- your successes.
If that isn’t you, but you are willing to give earnest, supportive advice, you may post here.
If that isn’t you and you aren’t willing to be supportive… consider replying to other posts in other boards in the ILIASM forum.
Note that "being supportive" may take the form of "encouraging someone to stay in the marriage because that is their stated goal", but it may occasionally take the form of "encouraging someone to consider what is really best for the individual" (even if it is at odds with supporting the marriage, per se).
We expect a respectful decorum EVERYWHERE on this forum, and in that sense the rules are no different here. If you feel someone is missing the mark on "supportive" or "respectful", you may either respectfully attempt to point this out on the thread, or use the "Report Post" menu option to flag a post for review by the moderators.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
