I thought that was how things were supposed to work out. My wife didn't. After 18 years, she finally told me that living with me was "killing her" and she wanted a divorce. Our kids chose to stay with me so I guess I'm not all bad. She'd been cheating on me for years. 2 weeks after the divorce she was already living with another guy, experiencing that romantic-comedy feeling again.

I guess that's what she needed.

It's now only two years later and their relationship is falling apart. I guess she's still looking for the romantic comedy relationship, or hasn't figured out that love is supposed to evolve away from that.

Or maybe I'm wrong too.

I guess my point is that different people have different expectations. Love will be what it is, but if you want "happily ever after" then you'd better make sure that you and your lover have the same expectations of what that means and how the relationship can, and should, change over the years.
What he said! Yes

So many people have the notion that love can be like a rom-com which is just a fantasy most of the time.

I've seen very few couples in my lifetime that have that type of connection. Most do not and will never have.

Me and ManlyGirl do. ... Bitches. ...

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Most can be lucky, Aurora, most just can't be bothered to expend the necessary effort, too lazy to realize it. ... Lazy fucks. ...

So I'm Ms Lazy Fuck. Bugger! Confused

It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack, FFS! Anyway, I'd rather be by myself than with someone who doesn't 'get' me Sleepy

Hmmm, I think it's more like rare times I don't get me. You get what I'm getting at? Big Grin
