"I've lost the most important thing to me and that's my marriage and I'll do anything to get it back."

"Our house doesn't feel like a home anymore."

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too.
