Man A for sure!!!!! I've had money and material things, but ex-dh didn't know how to communicate or show love. I long for a man that loves me a lot and that I can grow old with.

In response to a confession. OP of the Man A, Man B post here. She has the same level of feelings for both men. I should've clarified that in the initial post, sorry.

The confession was about how much Man A or B felt about her.. How about which one SHE feels mow strongly about?

Go ahead and flame me, but I'd choose man B. My ex husband loved me more than life itself. He tried to make me happy, as best as he knew how, but our relationship, while hot, was unsustainable. Unfortunately, he was raised in a fucked up household and didn't understand how to make a marriage work, even with counseling. Love, even the glorious, undying kind, isn't always enough. I'll always love that man, but that relationship was just too tumultuous. So, at this point in my life, I'd choose a mediocre, secure marriage, where money is stable and things are kind of boring, over burning, passionate, die-for-you love.

In response to a confession. Man A is a find. The thing is, Man B might be interesting, not bc of the finances, but bc of his intellect. (you mention only the finances and finer things (not thanks, it IS 2018), but I see a different focus) I find myself attracted to men that are passionate - but about life, work, etc. So, then, they don't hang everything on me - they are stimulated by work, history, outdoor activities - passionate about those things and confident in themselves. That is attractive, even though it means I am not his all and everything in some sense. What's wrong with middle class? And again, aren't you (spouse) working too?!! jazuz.

Which man would you choose to marry? Man A loves you with each and every fiber of his being and would crawl to the ends of the earth for you to make you happy, but all you could ever hope for is a middle class existence at best with him. Man B is wealthy and financially secure and can afford to give you all the finer things in life. You would never have to worry about money but he doesn't love you nearly as much as Man A. He does love you and wouldn't cheat or anything but you're sort of an afterthought to him. also, which man would you want your daughter to marry? *this is purely hypothetical and I'm just asking out of curiosity*

In response to a confession. I'm glad your family is open to this.. I'm all for experimenting with new foods and recipes, but don't spring them on me at Thanksgiving! That's the one time of year I look forward to my "regular" flavored turkey, stuffing, rolls, etc.. PS my dh adds a touch of French onion dip to his mashed potatoes and they are creamy and delicious

lakegirl, funny you should ask about the menu! I freaking LOVE cooking for Thanksgiving and I just finished watching Salt, Fat, Acid, and Heat on netflix (HIGHLY recommend you watch this, it's amazing). So, I'm going to be a little experimental this year with the food. I'm thinking buttermilk in the mashed potatoes, and I'm still debating what kind of acid to add to the stuffing to give it some brightness. Definitely two birds, perhaps with different flavored brines. I also want some umami in the cranberry sauce, but not sure how I'm going to accomplish that either. Any ideas? I make everything from scratch.

I would have loved if my MIL went dress shopping with me. My parents both passed by the time I was 20, my grandparents were also deceased, my siblings from my dad's second marriage were little, my stepmom lived 13 hours away, and my aunts, uncles and cousins were on the opposite coast where I grew up. So MIL and SIL - who was also MoH - were supposed to go with me. They were all I had out here. SIL, who would be driving MIL, kept canceling, so I ended up just going alone. They never made it to the fittings, either. No one saw me in my dress until my wedding day.

In response to a confession. The wedding is at my house because they asked me. My brother convinced them to get married at a family gathering that was already happening anyway. That's between him and them. I would have wanted to go shopping with FDIL no matter where they got married. Not sure what your big ol beef is. I am planning an event either way. My son is getting married. It's a big deal to me. I'm doing a damn good job of being chill about it IRL but hell yeah I'm excited and have opinions. I think that's pretty normal.
