Those are all lame excuses. You don't need any of those to stay with the other person.



No they aren't. I'd say following the most important rules of your religion is not an excuse, nor a government ploy.

If i was a woman, i wouldn't be too interested in making and raising a guy's kids and then being dumped for his secretary with no resume or experience and my prime behind me.

If something exists as an important part of culture or cultures for many years and it doesn't make sense to you the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of "you don't get it" vs "everyone to ever live except you is an idiot."

If you research it you'll find age
has almost nothing to do with it.

"Marriage is like a language that some people can speak and some people can't. "

Most of the people I know can't, not
even close. But like I said, everybody
here doesn't know any unhappy
married people, or so they think.



Research by listening to talk radio i guess.

Your sex drive goes down as you age. You and your partner become much less attractive. The biological imperative for humping is gone.

It would be surprising if people didn't stop having sex.

Also the 50% divorce rate is inflated by people who get multiple divorces. Takeout larry king and the rate goes down.

Things I've never done: Convince EvenBob that he's wrong about anything.

Anyone else who could put that on their list?

Being wrong is not a sensation I'm
familiar with.

I remember the time Eliot took a crack at him. That was some funny stuff. Poor Eliot.

I meant only that he seemed very frustrated with you.

Must have been years ago, I haven't
talked to Eliot for a long long time.
How would you even know that if
you've only been here for 7 months.

I'm willing to give IMatterToMotion the benefit of the doubt. Lots of posters admit they lurked on here before joining. :)
