I don't know any of my ex's that have been married....so that probably says something.


But then again, neither am I....so maybe that says something too. Hmmm....I should have given that more thought.


LOL...seriously, though, I'm single by choice.

My boss told me she doesn't understand why people get married anymore, that it doesn't serve a purpose like it use to back in the days??? Kinda interesting.

No, I don't feel sorry for the person who married my ex.
They deserve each other.
My favourite anecdote was related to me by my son who was
living with his mother and her new husband (and her boss, you figure it out).
"Al vacuums when he gets upset, and the house is absolutely spotless. . . he
vacuums an awful lot lateley. . . "

hahaha!!! Funny you should ask.

When my ex hooked up the first serious one after me, I was praying that they would get married so I could be sure she'd be out of my hair. I never liked him much, either, so I thought they deserved each other! I went out for a beer with him once, and the ex was freaking about the possibility that I'd reveal Certain Realities to him, but all I did was talk about how completely wonderful she is.

Yep, I'm evil....

Nah...just glad that he could be happy.....

People change. When you are with someone, it's wonderful! But everyone changes - their ideas, attitudes, ways of conducting themselves in general. Some for the good, some for the bad. But nobody ever stays the same. And if two people no longer can be a positive thing for each other, then it is time to move on. If there is bitterness in a relationship, hopefully it ends with the break up. And then maybe good things will come because of it. Keep the happiness of those times within your heart. Although it's easy to blame yourself or the other person for the fallout, all it really is (to me) is change.........

I've never had any EXes but I'd like to think that if i did have a relationship with somebody that I would leave their life a little bit better then it was before and vice versa. So they're potentially getting somebody that is potentially better then before, possibly.

I don't. Most of my ex's were great people and we just weren't a good fit. I always hope that they've found that person to make them happy.

My dad married at 20 something. Had 2 daughters. Divorced because of humongous problems with the relationship. Started a 2nd family at the age of 40. Anddddddd. if he wanted to he could probably go again.

People are capable of living longer and looking better. They're capable of not going as senile as early.
This world is changing and people who have their old ways of thought, they can continue to think so and they can continue pushing for things . But the reality of the world is that certain things are changing. Before change occurred every 50 thousand years. Then it started happening every couple of thousand of years and then it started happening every couple of hundred years. We've just finished getting over a period of time where social changes occurr in under 50-30 years.
And the world is not slowing down. It's speeding up and society is not capable of keeping up with these changes.

Probably the worst, and I'm sorry if I ruin a whole bunch of gal's and guy's dreams, and no I'm not saying this applies to everthing, is that marriage has to be till death does us part. Too much stuff happens in one life time. It used to be that if you met one person that one person was all you needed, but now careers and lifestyles can change at a whim. One decade you could be working as a lab assistant and the next decade you could be working your way towards a CEO for some financial institute. The next decade you could be roughing it in the Yukon. And just because this is what you want to do does not mean that this is what your spouse wants. Does this mean that you should limit what you do? Does this mean your spouse should accept what you do? Does this mean you have to find a middle ground?

That is life's choices and it's up to you but I think what this society needs to wake up to, and change accordingly - instead of making so light of marriage, is the fact that marriage in the 22nd century does not work and it needs reworking or at least rethinking. At best people should not think of marriage as a "to the death" and people should no0t look at divorce/separation as being "evil" or being the end of the world, and neither should it ruin somebody's life because their wages are garnished by 70%, and they lost their house and everything else that they built in their life. I mean for God's sake.

Wake up world. Marriage is such a mess because society and legislation has not woken up.

This was the post that broke BF Because when I posted it boom BF died.

Lex, yes most of my ex's were great guys, I think mostly we just grew apart and had different visions, there were just a few jerks along the path.

sinister me is going to say this.. today.. cause it's been pooring all day and it suits my mood.. I dont know that it is realistic to expect to live your whole life with the same person and and long for that person everyday for 50 years. I dont know that you can feel the same lust and love everyday for the rest of your life. I dont know... I just dont know... nothing last forever and even if you make it last forever the things you most loved at first go away and get replaced by other feelings.. as of today.. I dont believe that I would be happy being with the same person for my whole life time.. but that could be cause I am sinister and grumpy today.
