Curly Howard: fdlgrl: just don't understand why people who have been married for 10+ years would even bother with a divorce. If you've learned to live and grow for that long, it seems like divorce is just an easy way out.

He cheated on me. That's all. But as mentioned earlier, it's a soul-crushing feeling that someone you trusted so much can betray you like that. For a year he had an affair and when The Other Woman told me the truth, I packed my car and left. I'll also mention for the sake of the misogynists on Fark that I didn't take any matrimony or half of the three houses we owned or half his 401K or anything. Our divorce papers were one and a half pages.


I call bullshait!!...my ex gets over half my monthly income and she was the one stepin out...I've know a few women scorned, and they took their ex's for all they were worth plus some more...You either had a bad attorney or are not telling everything.


Or maybe you had a bad lawyer
Or maybe she didnt try for anything either.

I hired an attorney to divorce us- not to fight. My parents went through a ten year divorce, divvying up all their money between lawyers. I wanted it quick, clean and simple as possible. I have to admit, though, even the judge looked at me cross-eyed.

boomaze: true, but you simply won't find a better woman in the sack. just saying.

Amen, the two best partners I've ever had turned out to have some mental issues - the first was slightly schizophrenic (the reason I broke things off, seemed normal at first, went downhill from there) and the last was abused as a child and can't have a normal relationship, much to my chagrin.

I've just made it a priority to not date the farked up ones. Unfortunately at my age all the not-farked-up ones are taken or lesbian.

No bad lawyer here..state rules stipulate what amount I had to pay based on our combined income, plus child support and continuing education support. By the way, the ex makes more than I do, go figure.

the insanity/sexual fun ratio is proof of God's sense of humor.

I'm 34, not poor by any means, healthy, damn sexy, ect. That being said, if you meet a 30+ year old woman that is single, there is a good chance she is single FOR A VALID REASON. Just remember that whne you come home and theres a dead hooker and note on your porch. just saying.

Depends on the state. Mine were short and sweet. Granted I did them for both myself and my ex-wife...but it was very amicable and therefore a very short petition.

Amen. Since I'm almost 36, I feel your pain. I'm just looking for that diamond in the rough. Tough to find. May have to go younger and hope to find someone who doesn't mind a 10 year age gap.

Just coming out of a 4 year relationship and 2 year marriage. And whoever said it before is right... for some reason people seem to think that the whole "for better or worse, in sickness and in health" is an option. You'll move on, find someone else, get your life back on track... and probably sooner than you thought you would. That doesn't mean you'll like it at first, and it doesn't mean you've healed either.

I have no words of wisdom.

I just have scars.

So long as you have a $100,000 net worth gap, I don't think the years will matter all that much.

IdBeCrazyIf,

Actually, that was a quality my ex possessed (well, she liked to get involved too, not just watch), and that ended kind of badly... Mostly just because suitable replacements are few and far between (I know a few, but they're either taken or getting over exes).

The worst part about dating at my age (30) is that I can go up and down just as easily. Most women in their young to mid 20's are immature and unrealistic but beautiful and smoking hot. Most women in their mid to late 30's are extremely fun, more down to earth and have past through the bullshiat stage of wanting money, power, etc. -- however a lot of them are sun-bleached, wrinkley and not as energetic in the sack.

If only their was some hybrid woman -- young, beautiful, intelligent, charismatic, no bullshiat, down to earth ... Yeah, keep dreaming!

Dude, i'm on the same rollercoaster. thought it was just me. 40 year old just left was a blast and all around good time but not really hot.(I know, I'm shallow). the hotties are almost unbearable to take anywhere or do anything with. Honestly, seems like anybody under 28 is farking retarded. I find a hot MILF 30-35+, she's mine baby!

apexcoil,

Amen to that, being surrounded by young 20's, it's not hard to get laid by eye-candy. A meaningful relationship... not so much. Pity I'm not really into the casual sex thing anymore.

/besides, I've seen some late 30's that are still smoking hot

Right on. This seems to be a great age range for women. Still hot if she has taken care of herself and past the "I want a sugar daddy" phase.

I know I mention it often, but it's not the actual act that matters the most. It's the fact that she's willing and eager to put my wants and needs above hers first.

For me, our freaky fun could never happen again but I would still know that she has my interests placed first. And that right there is what makes me appreciate and want to work on our relationship more and more.

I think most people forgot that tiny fact, that even the best relationships still need honest work and patience.

2007-08-21 04:45:34 PM
IdBeCrazyIf,

I realize it's not the act itself, for me it's about the interaction/energy/emotion involved behind the act, hence my nay-saying casual sex (fine if that's your thing, but I don't get much out of it anymore). What I meant by my post is it's hard to find someone I relate to deeply enough to get seriously involved with, wich is far more important than threesome potential...

/both would be nice though

Threesomes, although fun, are highly overrated compared to physical intimacy with someone you truly love exclusively.

I think often quite people lack the ability to pick up on a truly potential good mate because of fear of opening up and exposing your true self. Not saying you are in this category, just sorta mental babbling.

And really, why limit yourself to three ;)

In this case, there is a right way. Involve anyone else in the relationship and it will end much sooner rather than later...it destroys the dynamic in a couple and helps someone leave the relationship for something that seems better rather than sticking around and working on the relationship.

Not to start a "let's see who can make the most people sorry for them" war, but break-ups are CAKE compared to having a significant other die while in the relationship. Different topic, I know, but THAT frickin' hurts everyday. Everyone who whines over break-ups NEEDS TO GET LAID!!!
