» jennybee - 15-10-15 09:49 -- its true
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 09:48 -- Here being married gives you a lot of rights that "partners" do not get LV
» jennybee - 15-10-15 09:48 -- that said, i'm not against it, and if i found the right one, I probably would
» jennybee - 15-10-15 09:47 -- I dunno I never had any desire to get married, but I'm weird lol
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:46 -- I mean it's the same as just living together, only it's a lot nastier to break up
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:45 -- apart from tax benefits?
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:45 -- why do people even marry?
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:44 -- ah
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 09:43 -- Yes she supported the divorce. I mean, they didn't "believe" in divorce, but they always hated my ex. Never felt like he treated me right. But honestly, whatever guy they had in mind for me does not exist. They want someone who meets their idea of perfection. And yes I realize I am using "they" even though dad is gone.
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:42 -- did your mom support you with your divorce? I don't remember
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:41 -- If she starts emotionally blackmailing you with the dead of your dad
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:40 -- that'll be harsh
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 09:39 -- Yeah, I mean hopefully she will realize that I'm not gonna date a Christian guy since I'm not Christian anymore, but who knows. She may be hoping my dad's death will bring me back to god.
» Revenant77x - 15-10-15 09:39 -- It's a game no hard feelings
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 09:37 -- Sorry about the mafia game, it's the 1st of that type I'v played
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:37 -- next thing you know, she pulls her shotgun and starts pumping you full of lead
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 09:37 -- Hey Revs
» Revenant77x - 15-10-15 09:37 -- Drinking Beverage
» Revenant77x - 15-10-15 09:37 -- I am a god
» Revenant77x - 15-10-15 09:37 -- and technically I am not an atheist
» Revenant77x - 15-10-15 09:36 -- Future Dark Overlord
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:35 -- no , "atheist communist sexual deviant" sounds more appropriate
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:34 -- next thing you know, all the little things she disagrees with you will be traced back to "atheist communist baby eating man corrupting EA"
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:33 -- Big Grin
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:32 -- "mom, this is revs, this totally strange man you've never met. I know him from the internet , and I'm moving in with him" then drop the bomb "and he's an atheist"
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 09:13 -- On the one hand, I think she'll feel better about mine and the kids safety if a man is there with us, but on the other hand, she doesn't know Revs at all so she'll see it as me and the kids being there with a stranger.
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 09:13 -- No, not yet. I'm going to let her meet him in person. That may or may not be a good idea, but it's what I'm gonna do.
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 09:00 -- hey, EA, have you told your mom about revs yet?
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 08:58 -- My best friend told me not to let the sadness take away from the good things going on. That I have a lot of big things coming up and being down in the dumps would not help me face those big things very well. Big things like me and Rev and the kids all intermingling and getting to know one another, telling my mom about Rev, etc.
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 08:55 -- I feel guilt when I'm actively grieving over him (because it takes away from my excitement of Rev finally getting to be here) and I feel guilty when I'm not actively grieving him because then it's like I'm forgetting my dad or like I don't miss him when I do.
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 08:54 -- what Jenny said Smile
» jennybee - 15-10-15 08:52 -- It's all part of processing everything
» jennybee - 15-10-15 08:51 -- I felt the same way with my dad. It does get better.
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 08:51 -- you'll get through it!
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 08:50 -- Yeah, me too. Still dealing with some guilt, but I'm trying to work through that.
» KidCharlemagne1962 - 15-10-15 08:41 -- glad you're feeling better EA Smile
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 08:39 -- Do we want some wounds to be healed?
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 08:38 -- You know how we say time heals all wounds?
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 08:34 -- good for you! Thumbsup
» Escape Artist - 15-10-15 08:34 -- Yeah, feeling better. Had a good chat with my best friend over the phone last night. So that helped.
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 08:29 -- What do you guys think about that article in the Dyson swarm thread?
» Lightvader - 15-10-15 08:28 -- feeling better today, EA?
