This is a question Crappy relationships

"Recently," Broken Arrow tells us, "The missus informed me that her brother was moving with us." What has your partner done that's convinced you the magic's gone? "Breathe" is not an answer.

DGM. Know what it stands for?

Seriously, kids. How many young uns do you know who pop the question just so the girl can have a day dressed as a deflated meringue and spend 8 thousand quid on getting the pageboy's y-fronts to match the upholstery of the car?

How many of your friends and parents are divorced, or are married but unhappy, or having affairs?

It's what I say to all my 30-something mates now. DGM. The statistics say it will end in divorce. DBAS. And that stands for Don't Become Another Statistic. Arguing over who gets the George Foreman Grill.

Pick the right person - and BE the right person. You have to work on these things.

We're happy - two kids, six years of being married.
I'm always amused by the whole "It happened to me, so it will happen to everyone" stream of advice...

Terms and conditions apply - marriages built in the olden days don't count.

I have an Aunt and Uncle who have been married for 40 years and loathe each other. Google the term Irish Divorce before you make a blanket statement like that.

Well, 37 or so years, their marriage is something I aspire to. They love and respect each other more each day.

Seriously though, if I suck you off, will you give me a deposit on a house?

Oh yes
Don't confuse a wedding with a marriage. One lasts a day. The other til death us do part. Apparently.

Somebody sounds like he has a girlfriend that's pressuring him
And he's trying to find any reason not to commit and doing research to back it up.

As someone
who's just cracked the 20 year happily married mark, I can only say this post is WRONG.
A stable relationship gives you the support you need to get through the crap in life.
And, no, it hasn't all been plain sailing, but you work it out. That's what being a grown-up is about.

Oh, and our GF grill is in the garage. Pile of crap can't cook sausages worth shit.....

I let her have the George Foreman
I got something far more important - my life back.

No-one I know got married for the Wedding, they got married because they love each other and want to commit to each other.

Your outlook is horribly cynical.

Sorry, But...
You're talking badly generalised crap.

15 years after we first met, I got together with my partner. We'll be married next year. Yes, we're having a Church wedding, but I'd settle for getting married in a field [if her parents would allow it.]

There's no-one else I'd rather be with, and I never want her to go away.
(, Thu 28 Oct 2010, 10:34, closed)
so why marriage?
to paraphrase Doug Stanhope, "We've got a great relationship, there's just one thing missing...let's get the church and state involved with this!"

I really don't get that part

Mr Foremans grill things are on offer in Tesco these days..

the 5 portion one (hurr hurr) comes in at around 30e..so if you're getting divorced...let the ex off with the foreman..buy a new one for yourself..

Argument avoided..win!

Or alternatively
just bludgeon her to death with the aforementioned grill. Give it a quick clean, and it's ready to use again.

The hot plates are dishwasher safe, so it's a result all round.
