    A Good Marriage

    I have never seen so many people with bad marriages, unhappy with their marriage, and want to cheat. Am I the only one with a good marriage? It's not perfect, but that would be boring!! Being on EP, I told mt husband, THANK YOU!

    No Love, Too Much Sex, Not Enough Money...

    ... I'm tired of hearing about terrible marriages. I have so many friends who after 5-18 years of marriage are totally unhappy, and in most cases, it's always "the spouse's fault"! We all need to take a good look at ourselves in the mirror and be reminded a solid...

    Marriage There are two kinds of things in life,

    basically: logical, and emotional. Emotionally driven things tend to turn out badly, for me anyway. I’ve been in love 7 or more times, and divorced twice. Strong emotion is not sustainable. Successful acquisition of practical things – like deciding which vehicle to purchase...
