Re: How is your marriage?

I am surprised to announce that our marriage is fantastic. Just like the old days! It's 2009 to early 2015 I have absolutely no explanation for .

How is your marriage?

I love my wife and our marriage is good, as we define it. After 21 years it is still passionate. However passionate does not mean perfect. And, frankly perfect is boring. We have not had the huge and truly heart breaking issues of some folks on TAM, but we have had our moments.

We both argue our cases passionately (not physically or unfair) just as much as we makeup and are sorry passionately. Folks I don't care about I am dispassionate with as opposed to those I truly love and would die for. So, perfect? No. Passionate? You bet. Is that good? For us it is, it works for us. Passionate also means keep intimacy for us alone. Again, that works best for us.

One last thing, I discovered (recently), the best way for me to be a good father to my sons, is to first and foremost be a great husband to my wife. Of course that in and of itself can fill gigabytes of a server to define. It is not always what you think, but in the end it works for us.

Re: How is your marriage?

it's a lot harder to do than you might think, but then again, there are a significant amount of happy people out there, so something is working.[/QUOTE]

They found the compatible ones....

Re: How is your marriage?

I have so much sex. Between my wife, Righty Tighty, and Lefty Lucy, I'm exhausted.

Nah, we have TV and running water and all that.

People were doing it like bunnies and nobody cared.

Re: How is your marriage?

No, I say those things to people who feel they are morally superior and yet post about how lousy their marriages are living under their own morality. I have a message that much of what causes marriages to fail is an adherence to what we think marriage should be. I say that i can have sex with two women at one time, other girlfriends and still have a very good marriage and good life. I am trying to let people know that you can design your own marriage to fit you and no matter how you life it, it can be good, loving and fun. In the end, my message is that sex is not what makes a good marriage but yet, is one of the top reasons why a marriage is destroyed. I let people know that I am sexually free as is my wife and it has no effect on our marriage and love for each other because we do not elect to make it so. And yes, I am proud that I had that many threesomes and the love of two women and not have the problems some do with having just a one night stand. So many people are still hung up on sex and ownership of their spouses that they are trying to live a marriage under old rules that do not work that well these days.

Naturally most of our friends led non traditional lives. I have left off a lot of things we did in our marriage not is not as mainstream as threesomes. What we all have in common is that we design our marriage to fit ourselves and set realistic requirements. We know that we will be attracted to others and will make made choices when emotions come into play. We also know that we can love more than one person and sex does not have to be just for making love. I get into people's faces and despite your opinion, I do get a lot of likes on my posts. My life is an open book and I AM proud of it. I have been very successful in my profession and in my personal/married life. I am not bragging, I am showing how outrageous you can be and still have a good and happy marriage. You sound a little jealous.

Many prefer to drown in a pool of their own morality rather than seek the safety of a different morality.

That typically predicts marital failure, not success. We can predict (with near certainty) whether or not a couple will divorce, just by how they dated.

That said, statistics are just statistics.
