Re: Do you get depressed on Father's Day?

At their ages and given that you are divorced, I think you would be better off trying to make somehow happen for Father's Day. I don't see that day as "let's celebrate how great dad is" so much as...

Re: Communication In Marriage

I married my H thinking he was a good listener, but he turned out to not be that way. Kind of a bait and switch. It's to the point now where he even has asked me to not mention his cancer recurrence....

What will be the problem, exactly? Not that I want to be in a such a relationship, but it doesn't bother me if someone else does.

Re: Wife wants to separate

As the old saying goes, "Women grieve the end of the relationship while they are still in it while men grieve it after it is over."

I think that saying reveals a lot about why men feel "shock and...

Re: Roberts says legalized polygamy is coming

And I finally can say I agree with Harken. Married people are taxed at a lower rate than singles. Divorced people must decide who gets to claim the kids on their taxes. There's all kinds of benefits...

Re: So much gotten wrong, I can't even process it.

It may have been a stupid offer, but how many men do a similar thing and think nothing of it? Want emotional connection through anything other than sex? That's why my wife has girlfriends, or her...

Re: Wife wants to separate

While men and women cheat in equal numbers, women file for divorce twice as often as men. And the reason most women leave is due to neglect in some form. They feel lonely and disconnected. Men...

Re: SCOTUS Decisions

Re: How to explain your decision to divorce

I always find these threads interesting. Men are supportive of other men leaving when there's no sex in the relationship. Their needs are not being met is the phrase you read often.
