    And the problem with that between 2 married people would be what? At least he seems to be keeping it at home! It's a good thing when you can be turned on by the person you decided to marry.

    Thank you! As a man I couldn't say that without coming off as a sexist pig.

    both. Toss in socially, as well.

    But, if I had to rank the 3, I think they diverge mostly on an intellectual level, then social and lastly financial.

    I don't think Melissa loves Joe. Joe provides her with financial and marital security which she values. She doesn't love Joe, but is attracted to him and that is enough for her to marry him.

    ...just my two cents.

    Interesting. If that's the case, I don't necessarily think it's unfair. Each is bringing something to the table. She has given him some beautiful children and keeps herself looking good, and seems to keep a good home. They, both, look happy....which is more than I can say for Joe and Tre. Teresa's Joe NEVER looks or acts happy...unless he's drunk, of course.

    I hate Joe and Teresa's relationship and how she seems to delude herself. I feel sorry for their whole family.

    Agreed. So long as everyone is ok with the situation, then, by all means go for it. And, in Melissa's defense, she and Joe Go are probably more happily married than 99% of married couples in the world. And that's a huge plus.

    I agree about Teresa and Joe. They seem miserable. Teresa is doing everything she can to stand by him, but I'm not sure why. Could be because of old-fashioned family values, embarrassment of a divorce, fear of being alone, wanting her kids to have their father around, etc.

    I can't help but wonder if they stay married for reasons having to do with Joe's trial. This, to me, makes the most sense.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New Jersey

    Ok just got to watch last night.

    Ugh.

    Caroline, how about you mind your own business. Gawd, what is up with her? One epi and she has single handedly annoyed the heck out of me.

    Gia, dear Lord, pray for this child. She is not going to have it great in life as she is a mix of Tre and Juicy and its coming out year after year. She has NO respect for her parents at all. She is a brat. Period. With 3 others following right along.

    Juicy, just disgusts me.

    Tre, no words. As usual.

    I do like Kathy and Rosie allot. I think they will be interesting this season. Kathy, in the previews, seems to be having issues with Rich.

    Jac, I absolutely feel badly for her and Chris with baby Nick. I hope and pray they work hard with him and things will get better and better as he grows. I loved that he said he wanted the iPad. CJ looks like he is trying hard to be a great big Bro.

    I don't really have an opinion on Mel and Joe. I think they are a perfect match for each other.

    That whole Melania and Antonia get together appeared totally scripted to me. JMHO.
