    I'm looking around for my live in housekeeper and cook.....she must be under the big pile of dirty laundry downstairs.

    thats because they were out dating the wild and dangerous guys and not paying attention to the nice guys at the bars and they have moved on now.

    yes. sometimes i wonder why the heck I did it. can't say i am real happy now. i know if she was to leave i could make the bills since thats all i am doing now. my paycheck to the bills and she keeps hers to spend as she wants. as for companionship....god i love menopause. lets guess what mood she will be in today. more tension than at ease around here the last few years and she won't see a doc for help . :deadhorse

    I'm not married but I have seven older brother's and sister's who are and they are all very much in love. From what I notice is that they married their best friend. Of course, I'm sure their sexual attraction towards each other doesn't hurt either but when it comes down to it, the look in their eyes tells me that they could never be without them because of the friendship they have with one another.

    Joeguy, if it makes you feel any better (I doubt it! ) a lot of times the doc won't help either. I'm just starting to get a few 'symptoms' and I hate it myself. The doc can't or wont let me be on any HRT until my symptoms are fully active. So, I asked, can't I just get a total hysterectomy and be done with it? Oh hell no of course not, I will end up trying to deal with this for at least another 5 years before the dotor or the insurance company will let me do it.I can't understand...they will cover Viagra for men and the doctor doesn't make them do all kinds of weird diets, getting in shape, etc first to see if it helps; but insurance won't help women with birth control (or alleviating menopause symptoms before age 45)

    By the way, I'm still single, never married, didn't want kids. And it's not that big a deal right now. But I think I might feel different about it when I'm old...it would be nice to have someone around then. The really old couples seem to support each other so much...

    My parents have been married nearly 50 years now, and they've always been kind of a 'team', not trying to get their own way all the time, no huge amount of fighting, drama, etc. They still snuggle up on the sofa together! It's very sad knowing that one or the other will be left alone before too many more years go by, but it's inevitable.

    I've asked myself many a time why I got married, especially since I'm still technically married but have been separated for about a year and a half now. I think it all just came down to that it was the next course of expected events in life. We'd been living together for 2 years when we decided what the heck, might as well make the jump and go ahead with it, what's gonna be the difference? Apparently a lot because all the small problems we'd had along the way suddenly became enormous ones and over the course of time trying to repair them it became a lost cause for us. I wanted a companion, lover, friend...someone who wanted to spend time together and have things in common yet somewhere along the line I ended up with a roommate who occasionally contributed to the bills and occasionally showed up at home as well.

    I'm very happy on my own and honestly don't see me going thru with marrying again, granted I'd probably live with somebody again and have a long term something or another, but I thought that before I got married in the first place too....maybe this time I'll stick to my original instincts.

    I'm sure not the one to answer this question. I never married my son's father mostly because he turned into a b*stard but that's a whole other topic. Lot's of times I feel like I missed out on a lot because that situation soured me on a big part of marriage but then again, I'm so set in my own ways now, no poor guy would've ever made it.

    Besides, I think my family would be a great case study. My parents have been married for 47 years. I never married. My sister has been married to her husband for 23 years. My brother was married, divorced and is now remarried. My youngest sister just separated from her 3rd husband. There's just no rhyme or reason when it comes to us, I guess.

    I learned how to spell strengthen

    In May it will be 6 years that we have been married and we were together for 5 years before that, in all of that time I have never questioned or regretted getting married, however, I have wondered why my husband married me. aka How Did I Get So Lucky?
    Sure I poke fun at him in the 'drive me crazy' thread but those are really small, inconsequential things.. perfection is a state of mind right? The truth of the matter is he's simply wonderful and I couldn't see myself with anyone else.. and I don't see that changing any time soon.
