1. Does your home have CAC or AC Units?

2. Does your job now, or any job you ever had, have early days off in the Summer?

3. What is the most romantic thing anyone has done for you?

Soring, I just think that it's weird that whenever you mention you are happy, you have to mention those who are unhappy; when you mention your house is clean it is always accompanied by the information that other people's houses are dirty or cluttered, when you mention you are getting fit and trim it is always followed by a dig at fat people on the beach. It's like your "goodness" and value is only there if there are people to whom you can compare yourself favorably.

<<You DO know the divorce statistic is OVER 50% and then goes higher for subsequent marriages, right? Many of my friends and family relationships either don't make it to the 20 year mark. >>

I would say the opposite in my experiences, many are already over the 20 year mark in our couples group.

Of course I have said my peace in the private/public school debate, If you aren't comfortable with what I have to say that's not my problem to defend.

It was a passive/agressive dig.  Or revelation of those she knows that do lurk, One or the other or both.

I would love to know where ELSE my pictures are popping up then as I don't use anything but facebook AND the mention of the "Easter" picture was one indication.

It's not snide. It's right out in the open, Jambles. Go to the thread and you'll see several times I asked you questions you decline to answer.

I don't know, you are the only one who constantly mentions what's on her facebook...I figured it was pretty important for you to constantly mention what happens on facebook over here in ivillage.  

Because she is my FRIEND on facebook. THAT is why she knows what is going on there and mentions it.

That is great, truly. I LOVE to hear stories like that especially in this day of people divorcing because they left they left toothpaste in the sink.

I disagree that the issue is the ease of divorce, but rather the ease of marriage.   It's too easy to get married.  I don't know of a single couple who divorced casually; I know of more than one couple who married that way.  Among the divorced people I know, most of them stayed together TOO long, well past the point where a healthy marriage was even remotely possible.  And they did so because they didn't WANT to take "the easy way out"--as if divorce is simple.

I think it's really arrogant for people who have never divorced to act all self-righteous about how they've remained married.  They aren't morally better than those who divorce and they aren't superior for having allegedly "worked harder"--try holding together a crumbling dam for a year or two, only to fail and then talk to me about how easy divorce is.

And again, let us remember, I am neither married NOR divorced.  I'm just able to see what's right in front of me.

Nope, I am just blessed by the things I have and always will be. I wish everyone happiness but am not naive enough to know that not everyone is blessed in all ways in life. Some people have more of one thing than another. Love is sometimes very hard for people while they may have a million dollars in the bank. Or someone might have a great paying job but can't have children, etc, etc.
