well clearly YOU have strong feelings about people who've divorced....
"If gay Americans are not allowed to get married and have all the benefits that American citizens are entitled to by the Bill of Rights, they should get one hell of a tax break. That is my opinion,"

- Jeane "Dear Abby" Phillips, in an interview with Lisa Leff.

sometimes staying together for the kids is what has the opportunity to make a marriage that much stronger.

please.... you've made this opinion clear again and again so don't try to couch it in the old "juist b/c I say marriage is an eternal bond that must never ever ever be severed does not mean I think less of those who do...." argument.

I suspect you've never gone through serious marital problems. I always said divorce was not an option, that was till

My impression of Elizabeth Hasselback is that she's a bit wanting in the brain dept. I would take anything she says with a grain of stupid.

I don't think anyone should have to stay with a lying, cheating, abusive(verbal or physical) person.


i believe all those issues are forgiveable for some couples...a little ot hypocrisy a friend of mine shared when that prostitute scandal and the ny governor broke out.

I didn't say those things couldn't be overcome, I said that no one should HAVE to live with it. Living with it is a choice and best case would be for both parties to get counseling and fix things. My father was not willing to stop his lying cheating ways.
