GopherGuts: If I ever have such a stroke, just leave my Glock within reach of my right hand, take a long drive, and call 911 when you realize I'm not answering your calls.


I will, but I won't leave a round chambered, just to fark with you.

The solution is simple:
1. Put a plastic bag over her head while she sleeps
2. Claim "crib death" (yeah, like that's a real thing)
3. Cash in on insurance claim

yourmomlovestetris: I read somewhere that men are six times as likely to bail on a sick spouse than women are My theory is that sex is far more important to men than it is to women and if men feel as if they're going to be cheated out of it, they'll look for greener pastures.

But for every guy who bails on a sick wife, I'm sure there's a wife who's bailed on a husband who lost his cushy job/saving in the stock market and who can no longer support her in the way she was accustomed.


I think it's because women are socialized to be caregivers and the job of caring for aging or infirm family members often falls to women. I don't think this is a positive thing- I think that kind of work should be shared.

I also think sex is something that's equally important to people of both genders, but once again- we're socialized differently on it.

What does any of this have to do with married men? They're already not getting it from their wife, what difference would a stroke make?

Popcorn Johnny: Genevieve Marie: But you are truly a shiat person if after buying a home together and committing to marrying them, your first thought when they get sick is "How fast can I run in the other direction?"

I guess you didn't read the part about sticking around for a year. Can't blame anybody for not wanting to spend the last half of their life being a full time caretaker.


A full-time caretaker to someone they've known for a year and a half.  Long ago, I married a woman I'd only known for a year.  It was her good year.

thismomentinblackhistory: dletter: Talk about burying the lead, the second part Dear Prudence in that article is much better.... couple has been exploring swinging... left an email up accidentally on their computer that their teenage son reads, assumes it was just for dad, and confronts dad about cheating on mom.

It's a fake column.


That being probably true... it is still the more interesting fake story.
