Wisdom by Hindsight
oh rummy. that is good. i remember a line in some movie once. don’t even know which one now. but a young woman getting a divorce asked her lawyer who was an older married man ~ why he had managed to have a good marriage for so long. his answer was ” i don’t know. i guess maybe we didn’t expect so much and were happier with what we got.” tammyj recently posted..somewhere i got off
That answer was right for that period of time Tammy. Today, there is another very strong reason for break-ups, opportunity.
I didn’t try to “fix” mine as everyone but “he” knew it was now past fixing… Cathy in NZ recently posted..Instructions, who for?

Nice but a little self righteous. If a person is in an abusive relationship, it is ridiculous to ask them to hang on no matter what. Unless the relationship can be changed to be what they need it to be, there is not point in hanging on. Especially after you’ve given it a fair chance. Just my thoughts….

As Cathy would say, “It depends….” Cheerful Monk recently posted..Lamy Again
Indeed it would.
Sure why not? Abusive relationships is a category by itself.
I love this, I wish I knew this many times in the past.

WWW, there is a book that for you is likely to be a couple of hours of read that I recommend.
It’s the “Throw Away” generation now. That includes marriage.
Exactly. It is also an “Instant Gratification” generation.
That quote reminds of one I often heard my father repeat when I was young: “You made your bed, now lie on it!” – In other words there was no coming back. He never said it to me, thankfully he never had reason to. Grannymar recently posted..Sunday one liners ~ 10
I use that saying very often. In fact, it was one that I used a lot when my father would complain about his life at Pune!
