    Still Confused

    I have been divorced for several years now. All 3 of my children from that marriage are grown, living lives of thier own now. During the time I was a single mother, I had few chances to meet or date anyone. I was very unsure of myself in the first place, because my marriage had...

    So my parents 52nd Anniversary is today.

    With the joy of wishing my parents so much happiness with this big celebration, I find myself quite sad with the sobering realization that I will never have this for myself.

    Marital Matters

    After a couple of months, the first year I was at the university, there was a girl that opened all the doors. She was three years older and very experienced with men and women alike. I was a very lucky and happy boy. Those were the days when the sexual revolution was...

    Young And Dumb

    I married right after I graduated high school. We where married almost six years, before she cheated on me with an old friend. She came to me and told me what happened and that she was done and didn't want to work on it. It was an easy decision to leave.

    She Gave Up...

    It's funny how after the fact, in a situation you think you are an expert. Well, most do. Not I. If anything, I would consider myself novice in the area of marriage. Granted, I was married for eight years, and I did a lot of right and wrong. Did I deserve to be left when I was at...

    Divorce Blows

    I have been divorced once and it royally sucks. I married a great woman now so in that respect it was good and I learned a lot. I was not ready to be married but it would have been better to know that ahead of time.

    Hindsight Is 20-20

    I got married when I was young and stupid.   Somehow we never talked about what we were looking for in a marriage.  We just assumed we were assuming the same things.  He wanted romance, dates, and ...yaknow, a lifelong relationship.  I figured that mushy...
