    The key is accepting the person you married and not trying to change them into what you want. Also, not sweating the small stuff.

    I would. I did it once and it didn't work out the way I thought it would, but I have the most incredible children because of it.
    Now I have a man I can actually see myself growing old with, and is everything I could ask for, and would do it again without hesitation.
    But only if he wants to.

    ABSOLUTELY nothing could be truer than that. I have watched some pretty amazing women go their seperate ways because neither one of us could be totally honest with eachother when something bothered us. I could talk a seagull off a Biggie fry in the Wendy's parking lot but sometimes with relationships it just isn't that easy. Give me a rat shoplifter at the mall and I can get him to admit to his whole lifes crimes but...... MAN. I don't know if it's the fear of the repercussions from laying it all out there or what.

    (I really have no idea what's gotten into me with all these "real me" stories lately) I apologize and will now return to my jovial, ball breaking self.:BNANA:
    Stubborn I owe you a drink. ;)

    PS. The liberal, social worker with the Masters and probably PHD by now doesn't count. Two TOTALLY diferent outlooks on society and it NEVER would have worked, ESP considering our professions.

    Damn ... so many of us (including moi) who are so damn bitter! hahaha

    Snipe .. be advised I ONLY thanked you for your hilarious edit response. HAHAHAHAHA

    Kate .. the key to ANYTHING in life .. in my opinion, is laughter. That by far, in a man is the sexiest thing in the world. If I can come home after having the worst day at work and laugh? Then I am complete. Especially in our line of work ... if you cant laugh then you cant live, sane.

    It's funny...anyone here ever call out details, only to have wives pick up the phone, consider the hours, and know what contractors are the best to work for all on their own before they say without any consultation, "An 8-3 NStar? Yeah, he'll take that."

    What the heck are you waiting for Fra? Not being bad or nothing - but any woman that can read what you post and STILL say she loves you at the end of the day...I'm thinking she does.

    Well it seems to often be the downfall of a couple, one gets married hoping the spouse never changes, the other one gets married thinking the spouse WILL.

    And since Sniper made this a REAL thread with his post -to me the key is finding someone that stands next to you when times are hard. There are bumps in every road. You either have someone that can roll with that or you don't.

    Know what matters, pick your battles, fight fair and be willing to let each other be right when it really matters to them. No grudges or rehashing. It's either resolved, it isn't, or it isn't going to be and you need to get over it.

    Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty. Can't go wrong.

    Try and try again lol

    1st marriage 3 1/2 years, I got custody of my son which was unheard of back then.

    2nd marriage 20 years we split up peaceably.

    3rd marriage will be 25 years on Dec.7 Pearl Harbor Day and we are still
    fighting LOL.

    Yes I am a glutton for punishment but I never give up.

    Oh, we've got plenty of that. Looks like i'll be laughing at my husband for the rest of my life then, but it can't be good for his self esteem.:p

    At the risk of having my "MAN CARD" revoked for saying this: :wub:

    "A soul mate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected,
    as though the communicating and communing that take place between
    us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace."

    Guarda ... you just won respect points in my book, pal. !) for writing such a sincere, truthful thing and 2) for having the BALLS to post that knowing that your man card is officially tainted. LOL
