because all that seems to matter to you is
how a woman looks and that she is way
younger than you.



I suggest you re-read his post. He was talking about other guys (might be misogynistic). But what is it to you? You'll keep twisting around words so you can attack people.

Axel seems to be in a good relationship. You're clearly in a poor relationship with your wife. Keep telling yourself it's okay.....we don't care.

I don't know where or how you came up with all of that from what I said.

I think you misunderstand what I'm trying to say.

It doesn't really matter, some people are always happy, some people are never happy and everything in between.

You sound as if you're unhappy with your wife. Perhaps that happens as you get older, I have no clue.

First you brag that your GF is more than
10 years younger than you, meaning that's
very important or you wouldn't have
mentioned it. Then you go on to guess
that older men also desire younger women
and are unhappy with the 'old hag' they're
married to. You look at women as 'things',
there is no other way to interpret it.

You are bad at interpreting.

I didn't interpret. What he said was obvious
to anybody who can read. The only people
who talk like that are men who objectify
women.

I'm not sure, either way, whether 'objectify' is a legitimate Scrabble word.
I do think, (please remember I am insane which is not the same as worthless) that the whole crew here should plan an event around EB, track him down, drag him out, and buy him a beer. If we all do that, and he he drinks all the beers, we will get a new perspective if he is honest, which I believe he is.
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

EB drinks Vodka not beer. If you are looking for that liquor inspired perspective from him, just read his posts from the later part of most days. :)

I am all for people doing whatever makes them happy as long as they aren't harming anyone else and that most certainly goes for relationships. If EvenBob and Mrs EvenBob are happy in their marriage and living arrangements, god bless them.

I do have a little problem with EB's comment that it is 'normal' and becoming very common. No married people that I know maintain separate residences. Frankly few can afford that type of thing. If that is working for Mr and Mrs EvenBob, that's kewl, but don't try to sell us that this is the new 'normal'.

Look it up. Twice as many couples are doing
it than just 15 years ago. My insurance agent
says he sees it all the time, very common.
Some of them live in different cities. My
wifes boss lives in Grand Rapids and his wife
lives in Detroit. They see each other on
weekends.

This crap about having to be happy is insane.
It's an after WWII thing. If you asked an
average person in 1900 to rate the happiness
of his marriage, he'd think you were nuts.
You got by as well as you could, being happy
didn't enter into it.

I only know of one married couple who do not live together. However, they are by no means "normal".

EB, the couple where one lives in Grand Rapids and the other in Detroit....do you think they're living in separate households because they'd rather live like that? Or perhaps is it that they used to live together, one got a job somewhere else, and they are temporarily living in separate households, but plan to live together in the (near) future?

Just because it's happening 2x as much now than years ago doesn't mean it's "common". If 1% of married couple lived in a separate house years ago and now 2% live in a separate house....that doesn't mean it's common.

Not sure what your insurance person is telling you. Wait....why does your insurance person....oh never mind.


Perhaps it's becoming slightly more common....but that doesn't make it normal.
