And the dogs - does she have a dog too? Or is she allergic to his dog? I don't remember the reason for the dog issue. I don't think I could give up my dog for someone, they'd have to get over it unless they were deathly allergic and even then, I'd say take medication or see ya!
I agree wholeheartedly. I would never get rid of my dogs either.
I think Sescie also said she couldn't live with Jonathan because he smokes. So unless he quits, I don't know. I know it's not easy to live with a smoker when you're not, unless they do it outside which makes it almost bearable. Maybe she's willing to live with it if they're married.
I think it is bad if you are a non-smoker and your partner is a smoker because you could be exposed to second-hand smoke, and that causes more lung disease than it does to a smoker.
