I have been married for 9 days now.  ... and yet I feel very sad.  Not sad in my marriage.  I love my husband with all my heart.  I am sad in myself.  I knew that our physical relationship would be hard journey after the things I experienced, but I never expected it to be this difficult.  We have tried many time to be intimat...
