I don't think the meth and prostitution and her currently cheating on her boyfriend is my fault though... and there's a female member here (quite a few really, all but maybe one) who are prime examples of a GOOD woman who prove my opinion DEAD WRONG.

Such is life. Like children, marriage doesn't come with an instruction manual.
Trip you are absolutely right. The first paragraph is telling though, divorce is now the expected out come by too many people.

Sucks too, when im out of high school id love to eventually find someone to get into a serious relationship with, have kids and grow old(Come on, high school relationships aren't that serious) The only problem is I can be the best husband ever and never know what my wife is thinking. It seems its only going to get harder to find a good woman who would stay.

Sad but true. when my current wife and i got married, the Spirtual Minister (we got married in Lily Dale NY, Barb, said Minister has been interviewed for a couple of shows on the spiritual religion, saw her on a show on A&E one night) even said she would not be including the words til death do you part in our vows because so many marriages do not last. We requested that she did use them in ours. She also officiated my father and step-mother's wedding a couple years ago.

The only people in my imediate family that have only been married once are my wife and my step-brother. I am on #2 as is my father. My step-mother is on marriage #5. The only one to make it to the goal (let's call it what it is) of til death do you part was my dad. He and mom were married 32 years when she passed.

marriage is not what it was just a few decades ago. Nowadays, it seems as though spouses are disposable.

About a month after my ex told me she was filing for divorce we attended my cousins wedding. I did not tell the family what was going on before this because our daughter was in the wedding and I wanted my wife to be able to see her coming down the isle. I also was still hoping she would change her mind. If my family had known what was going on it would have totally overshadowed my cousins wedding, some of the hardcore Irish and German Catholic old women might have actually caused bodily harm to her.

After the couple said their vows I leaned over and whispered in her ear
"they screwed up the vows"
"what do you mean?"
"they left something out"
"what?"
"it should be 'until death OR A SLEAZY LAWYER do us part'"

I have been flamed pretty hard on this board previously for my belief that till death do us part actually means till death do us part, and if you aren't going to keep a vow, don't make it.

So I will bow out of this conversation with this little story. A few months ago the sermon at church was on the subject of "till death do us part". I don't remember what the priest said on the subject, but I remember the dinner conversation afterward.

We are eating in a restaurant, my mom and dad married 50 years, my aunt and uncle married 52 years, and another couple that they went to high school with also married 50+ years. All three women agreed that they would still be married in heaven. All three men agreeing that " death did us part" and Marilyn Monroe was waiting for them to get to heaven.

I miss summer vacations that never ended, when soldiers looked like grown-ups, when a year lasted forever, and when 2001 & 1984 were way, way in the future.

Ah, I miss the days when we all saw life and love through the rose-colored glasses of innocence, before we took the glasses off and realized that we had made one helluva mistake when picking our "til death do us part" life partner, and to stay one more hour in such a relationship would have brought the Death part to an untimely arrival.

In other words, sometimes the best choices aren't made up front, people change, and ending the marriage is best for all concerned.
