When I Was Married 25 Years, I Took A Look At My Wife One Day And Said, "honey, 25 Years Ago We Had A Cheap Apartment, A Cheap Car, Slept On A Sofa Bed And Watched A 10-inch Black And White Tv, But I Got To Sleep Every Night With A Hot 25-year-old Blond."

Now We Have A $500,000.00 Home, A $45,000.00 Car, Nice Big Bed And Plasma Screen Tv, But I'm Sleeping With A 50-year-old Woman. It Seems To Me That You Are Not Holding Up Your Side Of Things." My Wife Is A Very Reasonable Woman. She Told Me To Go Out And Find A Hot 25-year-old Blonde, And She Would Make Sure That I Would Once Again Be Living In A Cheap Apartment, Driving A Cheap Car, Sleeping On A Sofa Bed And Watching A 10-inch Black And White Tv. Aren't Older Women Great? They Really Know How To Solve Your Mid-life Crises!

If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling
at the front door, who do you let in first?
The Dog of course...at least he'll shut up after you let him in!

This is an old joke but a woman awoke to find her husband of twenty years crying in the basement corner. She asked him what was so wrong. He repied, "remember that day your father said I better marry you or else I would go to jail?" She said yes and he said, "I would have gotten out today!":o

The way I see it: I'm too old to think about happiness. :) I also never want to know another person as well as I know my wife of 17 years, vice versa.

Wife once asked if I was having an affair: My response, why in the hell would I want two f'ing headaches!

Older coupe is sitting at the breakfast table and the wife gets up, walks to her husband and smacks him upside the head. He picks himself up form the floor and asked, "What was that for?". She said, "That's for 35 years of bad sex". He shrugs his shoulders and after a couple of minutes, he goes around to her side and smacks her upside the head. She asks, "What was that for?" and he said, "That's for knowing the difference!".

An old friend used to say, " I wouldn't take a million dollars for my wife. But if something were to happen to her, I wouldn't give you a dime for another one like her." 36 years with the same woman, I must be doing something right.

Davo, I think I am striking a happy medium. Not going to either extreme. No cheap apartments, decent house. NO cheap women, nice girlfriend. No cheap cars, decent truck. I just dont see marraige being for me. I see to many unhappy people in my age range that are married. Life is different now than when the generation before us got married. I read about this stuff once. this stuff really started to change in the 60's and 70's cuz society was changing so fast. Before that, most young people had much more in common, they way of life was different then. People married mates that they were socially compatible with. Most people lived similar lifestyles then, by comparison to today. Today there is so much variety, short attention span, lack of commitment. its scary. people marry people that are arent truly compatible with, and thus problems happen. Difference of opinions are natural, but when it happens too much, it festers, and grows and gets to be a real problem. then people split up. sad cycle really. I am very wary of it. :o

Dont get me wrong peeps. I am not talking about infedelity, wanting to cavort around with floosies at will. I have no problem with being faithful. I am talking about NOT losing my arse in a de-vorce. I dont want that looming over my head. Ive worked hard for what I have, and I dont want to lose it.

02-01-2007, 11:25 AM
On one of my more serious notes... I agree with ya UMP! I think that the institution of marriage is decreasing more and more every minute. And the risk of losing everything is more imminent than ever in divorces.

I come from a good home with the quint essential suburbia lifestyle. I have awesome parents that truly love each other after 27 years of marriage (sometimes their love is over the top when they act like teenagers in love, but thats OK!). I am not going to lie, I would love to have this for myself. The stability that each of my parents provide for one another is a really cool thing and I hope that I find it someday, but I am slowly loosing faith...

With a 57% divorce rate in Southern California, it makes me very worried, that marriages are destined to fail. For all those who are still together after several years, I commend you, truly. I think that "the grass is always greener on the other side." I believe that if all of you think deeply about what you had at my age (23) and what you have now, you should feel proud and fortunate!

SERIOUSNESS OVER! Lets have fun!!

Sodar, you metioned a 57% divorce rate, which is pretty typical anywhere in the US. NOW! the big kicker! the amount of UNHAPPY married couples is about half of that! so only around 20% of married couples are still together and the key, they are HAPPY. I know many couples that probably wont get divorced, but are and will remain unhappy. that scares me too.

Dont get my wrong, I am not a rich man. Its not like I have alot to loose. I dont have much, but in my eyes, its alot. I dont drive new vehicles. not keepin up with the jones thing. I live modestly, but I dont want to lose what I DO have. cuz then, I would be scraping, and I dont want that. I see people financially messed up in divorce all the time. THe deal is, I have built what I have on my own. I am 34, I didnt start out with a wife at age 20 and build it all with her. I got everything on my own, so I dont want to get married and then lose it. thats BS.

UMP it just depends on how much you want marriage and how much you trust her. I remember laying in bed losing sleep the night before Rick and I got married wondering what would happen if after we got married I realized he was jerk. However, I believed he wasn't a jerk. I knew I just had to trust my judgement and feelings and go for it.

I think with marriage it is really getting to know/understand yourself and and the person you will marry well, following you heart, and then if you're going to do it make a lasting commitment.

Ok …………….

A marriage is a contract, when you get marred it is Love and Sex………..
And all that junk…….. I married a woman a lot younger than myself
For my immaturity and her maturity it was a match …….
(Leave it to an Engineer to look marriage like that)
IMO the only reason to get marred is for the Kids………
Look you can live with someone for years without a peace of paper
And be very happy………………………….
The trick when you are marred is to keep fun…it is easy to fall into a rut
When you have kids, you are working, going to soccer, BMX racing
Gymnastics, School, homework, church and so on……….my wife and my self are going into two different directions at the same time

How do you keep a marriage together you ask??????

Well it is Boating it is the one time we are all together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that this is tougher now, than ever though! I know my generation has a huge problem and that has been the moms that live vicariously through their daughters and pressure non-sense marriages for the benefit of personal gain! All I know is that a pre-nup will be written prior to any wedding ceremony and I would expect the same from any woman who walks into a marriage with something to lose...

In all honesty, I would agree... Would a peice of paper really make your love that much stronger???

If you do not want kids, all marriage is is a business transaction. As my man Mr. Walter Matthau once said, "I would love for you to put your name on my checkbook!"... or something to that effect... I can not find the exact quote!

I will say this. Had someone told me kids were this fun I would have had one when I was 20! My son is only 5 months old, but he is a blast! I am 29 and my wife is 30. We were married for about 5.5 years before we had our son.

The top ten reasons why men are reluctant to commit to marriage, according to a new report from the National Marriage Project of Rutgers University:

1. They can get sex without marriage more easily than in times past.

2. They can enjoy the benefits of having a wife by cohabiting rather than marrying.

3. They want to avoid divorce and its financial risks.

4. They want to wait until they are older to have children.

5. They fear that marriage will require too many changes and compromises.

6. They are waiting for the perfect soul mate, and she hasn't yet appeared.

7. They face few social pressures to marry.

8. They are reluctant to marry a woman who already has children.

9. They want to own a house before they get a wife.

10. They want to enjoy single life as long as they can

I think I will get married next year, as Sodar said I was raised in a great family, I wish mine will be even better. I really wish to have kids and try them to live the great things I had lived and much more. Since I was a kid I always had the support of my parents and also we had all the water sports to keep us togheter. Time and love is the key for everything.
