makes perfect sense to me

I call this nothing more than of the result of the "Once Burnt, Twice Learnt" syndrome. Especially for men. You can bet your sweet ass that I'll never get married again.

I can't afford another ex-wife.


I am crazy about sweetthing but if I had it to do over I'd stay a batchlor all my life and raise my son to do the same.

Once the stigma is gone from the term bastard we'll insult by saying " Your parents were married.!" This fact has cost me more than one job.

"You can bet your sweet ass that I'll never get married again.

You said a mouthful.
I'm with an insignificant other who wanted to get married several years ago. I recoiled in horror.
I still recoil. Bitch gets more demanding by the day; I'd leave if finances allowed. Us old folks aren't as tolerant as the young'uns I guess.

The ex got everything except my clothes and TV. No friggin way I'll ever put myself in that position again.

While I agree with you A-man, don't ya think it's kinda sad in a way? I mean really. I've been married for over 10 years now and I told my wife at the beginning that if she had any doubts, reservations, etc that that was the time to back out. I set out in life to only be married 1 time. My mother has been least 6 times by last count. I don't want that for my children. Call me jingoistic or old-fashioned if you want to but that's the way I see it. Yeah, there's been bad times along with the good but we're willing to work through them. Has the D-word ever entered my head? Of course it has. However, I'm better than that, my wife is better than that, and our children deserve better than to have their parents split over meaningless BS. That's not a slight at you A-man, just how I see my marriage. I see it as a commitment and I pride myself in making my marriage work. Geez, never thought I'd find a forum where I'd have to defend that.

As the laste, great Harlan Howard once noted "The next time I decide I want to get married, I am gonna find a woman I don't like and buy her a house."

'Nuff said.

Romance and what used to be marriage are dead - feminism and all this equal rights bullshit stabbed it in the heart.
