OP, you sound troubled... or maybe it is just your new outlook on life because of all the pain you went through.

All the bad situations I've been through in life... I still wake up every day for my children and hope for the best in people.

Call me crazy but, I still believe in good husbands who love their wife and children... and holding hands... and pure love even though i don't get to experience those everyday.

best of luck to you and yours.

@bobsmith

Are you happy?
If so it doesn't really matter that your views might not fit into the accepted norm(especially on a marriage site which seems a weird place to want to vent them, but to each his own) of a bunch of posters here or society as a whole.
It all boils down to perspective and if you're happy with your perspective then good onya, just like @Mr.Married 's hut dwellers are happy with theirs.
I will say it has been an interesting discussion.

We agree that this forum can be bleak.

Our crew brings in a different perspective and short and tall personalities.
We bring in leprechauns and a Red Dog, and a busty Red Queen.

We bring in levity. The leprechauns levitate people and 'stuff'.

SunCMars is our hero.
THRD owns the Avatar, but not the narrative. He is a weak mortal.

The Typist is both a wordsmith and a wax job.

We have our Lilith, she has grown considerably, from when she lost herself during that period of wanton lust.

Our Martian friends have been absent for a while. Though war is always on the horizon, their horizon.

We do post out opinions on TAM, so that management overlooks our other alphabet dalliances.

Sooner or later, the Fifth Dimension or King Hades, Mavis, or Hecate' will do us in. That is a surety.

The Host, Rd is ill, any years left, remain now, in doubt? Red Dog is now lost to us.

Of course not everyone in the past abided by those rules, but still, the standards for acceptable behavior for both sexes were very clear to everyone.

Now all that's been tossed aside and relationships are a complete mess.

And I blame women.

We have squandered our freedom and our power in order to behave more like men.

And - relationships used to be based on values and a true need for survival, with everyone contributing and doing their part. Now it's just about finding who entertains you for the moment.
Nice post!

Don't be too hard on women, they still carry the larger load.

In a post I made a year or two ago, I said the same thing.

The big issue with women is what?

That they are the last moral vanguard against chaos and Bohemianism?

That is not fair to lay it all on women. It is not. It is a 50/50 world.

I know, they get pregnant and they raise the babies. And the babies are the next generation to play in the sandbox.

Nobody has an eye on our collective future, as in, what is truly good for the human race.

Mankind is in a deep pickle barrel. And it keeps getting fuller and more sour.

We are tribal and we are horny fools.

"Yet, people seek to keep doing it..... Even on this site, basically no one comes here to say "I love my life", it is usually quite the opposite."

People don't usually seek out input and advice when things are going great... so um... yeah

Yep, by the time someone is on the internet searching for support for their marriage, the marriage is in trouble. TAM is a self selected group of people who are relationships are in trouble.

Then there are the people who stay here long after their relationship issues are solved, sadly often by divorce.

Short, sweet, and accurate!!

Even I'm not perfect, I've come to accept. (Imagine that!! 😉&#128521

I came to learn from this august group and stayed to learn more and sometimes share.

As a site that offers support for spouses going through issues, good, bad, ugly it's by beneficial necessity that good doses of reality and truth are dispensed when needed by someone needing a sanity check at the least.

Hope and sometimes harsh truths can be found here.

Which side one is drawn to is perhaps an indicator of what's being looked for or what one needs the most.
