Hey! I didn't know that.

I grew up in the Thames Valley area of the UK which, there, makes me a southerner.

Now I live near the equator which makes me, I guess, a midlander?

By those standards I'm now a Highlander...but there can only be one. (cue Queen)

Yeah, but which way does your water spin when you pull the plug. I expect it just goes straight down!

Gotta love urban myths.

I didn't know using the term "the south" would cause such a debate. Wink To be specific I grew up in Alabama, moved to Georgia, then came to Tennessee after college. And realizing I don't believe in God is a big deal because it may lead to a divorce.

Are you getting divorced in New Zealand?

As you can see things can get out of hand here. We mean well.

I hope you play rugby what with all the Kiwis here. Those crazy sods are likely to give you a hacka!

It's ok, you will learn once you start a thread 99% of the time it will end up somewhere you never knew it could Tongue

Take comfort in a very basic definition of love, which states that you accept that person as they are, "warts and all". If he cannot love you enough to stay married to you despite differences of belief, then he does not love you, he loves an idea of you to which he has been forced to realize you do not conform.

I hope that you can talk to him to make him realize that loving an idealized person, where it can cease when they do not conform to an imaginary version of them, is not love. Perhaps he will amend his ways. Perhaps not.

It annoys the crap out of me that he's more in love with his religion than with you. You deserve better than that. Find a man who respects your mind loves you for all that you are. I hope he will mature quickly at the prospect of losing you, and you can find that "better man" in him.

Pay them no mind. They're supposed to behave with these introduction threads. They will be reprimanded. With extreme prejudice.

Welcome.
