It blows my mind that a guy I realky loved would break up with me, then try to get back with me not once, but twice! I've never had this happen to me my whole adult life, because I was married for so long. Guess he thinks I'm stupid. Didn't fall for his b.s. the 1st time, and especially the 2nd time when he told me he'd been alone the last 3 months thinking about "what he wanted!" Yeah right. He went on a trip with a lady last month! I confronted him on all his crap. Good riddance! You piece of crap!

My experience has been opposite. My family hated my husband, said he was a loser with a bad job and no prospects because he chose not to go to college. My stepdad was always so rude to him and every time I would visit my mom, the conversation would turn to how he was no good because he couldn't buy me things. I loved him, stuck by him. Now, 17 years later we are still together, he has an amazing career, we are able to travel and WE have worked towards our goal. My EX-stepdad is now dealing with his daughter (my ex-stepsister) and her boyfriend who has a long criminal record, sells drugs and doesn't take care of his kids. My mom is dating guys left and right who never commit and she swears my husband is the best guy. Somehow, my "bad" decision worked out.

What with DH lying about smoking, and the tests he had this morning to rule out lung cancer I can’t even work up a fake smile. I just want to stay in my jammies and be a slug. But tomorrow we’re meeting friends at a farmers’ market and I’ve been practicing authentic looking smiles in the mirror. I literally can find no joy in anything.

If I had it to do over, I never would have married anyone in the first place and I wouldn't have had children. Ever. I'd still have my health and my body (destroyed by pregnancies/childbirth), and my money too. I'd still have my house. I'd have a lot that I no longer have.

My experience tells me that if your family hates your boyfriend or dh, then run... that's always been a red flag-for me anyway. My family has always been right in the long run.

In response to a confession. if i could go back in time, i would skip the whole marriage thing too. i love my DH but when i compare what i've had to give up to be married versus what i've gained by doing so, i don't always think it was worth it. I have no plans of divorcing him anytime soon but, honestly, i don't know if i wanna live the rest of my life partnered up either.

In response to a confession. I didn't have much family left when I married my first husband. His parents and siblings were so welcoming, and I LOVED all of them as well as my nieces and nephews. One time we were at the in-laws, and we were talking about the divorce of a couple we all knew. No one knew, but my marriage was on shaky ground and I was pondering leaving. When I saw the opportunity present itself, I said to MIL, "So if H and I divorced, we [meaning me and their family] couldn't still be friends?" She said absolutely not. Sure enough, as soon as I left him, and as close as we all were, they completely closed ranks. No one would even take my calls. That destroyed me.

Think about it, how much does a man's life change when he gets married? Does he do more work? No, in fact, statistically, he does a lot less. Meanwhile, a woman does more cooking, more cleaning, more shopping, more laundry, more appointments, etc. Many times they also give up careers. What sacrifices do men make? I'm thinking, and I can't come up with any. Yeah, not really a winning situation for women.

When my DH and I were going through a rough patch, the thought of not being close to my in-laws and my siblings-in-law was part of the reason I wanted to stay. My sisters and brothers in law are closer to me than my own siblings and I love my MIL and FIL and I'd miss them all so much. DH is a good guy too, but I honestly think I'm too independent for marriage to be the right decision for me.

Meh, don't get married! I wouldn't do it again, in hindsight. None of my friends would.
