    It's All About Us

    I was divorced with child.  He was single, from a large family.  We had been friends for several years, spending a lot of time together.  One night he didn't want to leave.  That was 34 years ago.  We knew one day our children would be grown and out on their own, and having...

    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...

    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!

    Good Marriage

    I see so many groups about bad marriages that I thought I'd check to see if I'm the only person that likes my marriage. Glad to see I'm not! My marriage is good because we're together, faithful, working through our fights (and there are some doozies!), and we have a great sex...

    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...
