    At this point in life no way I would start over. That's just me though, to each their own.

    Hell I waited almost 40 years to try it the first time :),.....

    wouldn't trade it though. I love the hermit lifestyle,....I've been a social isolationist for years. Aside from the gym I'd just about never leave the house if I didn't have to ;),.........I'm stoked for mulberry season :D

    On my third. 3 years with first glad to get rid of her. 14 years on my second. Was a rough one. Found out what love really is with my third. We get along great. I guess cause we both are older now and grown. Good luck keep your head up. It will get better.

    I was a glutton for punishment! You know why divorce is so expensive don't you? Because it's worth it.

    My parents will be married 64 March 31. My wife's parents are in year 63. We had great examples. We will celebrate 30 in August. It ain't always easy, but we make it work.

    First wife and I both changed, it just wasn't working anymore.
    The way I see it is the first wife is just figuring out what you really want in a woman.

    I have what I really want in a woman now,
    we met Oct 2006, married on March 26 2008,
    today is our 12th Anniversary
    Wife number 2 has stuck with me through some tough times.

    I did not marry my first long term lady (9 years). Had a kid and shit went really bad. She became an addict so i kicked her to the curb. After reliving college years with a bunch of younger women. Ive been happily married for 6 years now.
    As angry as i was at my kid’s mom, I neglected her. Worked 60-80 hours a week hunted and fished. Im way better to my wife but i catch myself taking her for granted and correct it. Im hard working and loyal but i can’t say i’m the best husband. Being emotionally supportive just isnt in my DNA. Thankfully i found a tough lady that can handle me.

    Marriage is the biggest scam and trap a man could ever fall for. There is absolutely 0 benefit for a man to being married when you can just live together. The day you say I do, take a sawzall and cut everything you own down the middle....I mean everything.

    Prayers for your situation... I know how much of a struggle a marriage can be.Marriage is work no matter what the circumstances. The family unit is the single most important institution. It’s great when it’s a mutual love and selfless bond.I use to think that once couples were married..they should stay married no matter the situation.But in some situations...like when kids are involved..and the couple just keeps on arguing and bickering...sometimes it’s just better to get away from that negative environment.Hang in there and try to work it out if at all possible.Seek God’s help and guidance... Prayer changes things.Don’t be afraid to ask for some help... we all need help..and your local church is a great place to seek out some advice.

    Prayers do change things, but when we pray we want answers right then and its hard to accept it when it don't right then

    Three questions to ask up front.
    How much land does your parents have?
    How much money do they have or you?
    Do you have any siblings?
