They're All Married

Everyone I know is married. My sister is married, my friends are married, my aunts are married, my uncles are married, my co-workers are married, and my neighbors are married.

However, these people are not very good role models for me. I talk to three or more of these married people on any given day and here's what I hear; I hate him, he stinks, he want to have sex all the time, he won't go to work, he doesn't want to have sex, his penis is too long, his penis is too short, he works too many hours, he works too many hours, he's fat, he has a big head, he won't let me smoke weed, I don't like his kids.............

They say a few nice things too, but mostly not. So why would I want to subject myself to what they're going through. I don't know why either - but I do.

That, my dear, is marriage in a nutshell.

Zed you hate marriage! You don't count. : )

I think I agree with Zed. Marriage is two people who feel an inexplicable attraction to each other learning NOT to dislike each other and eventually to love each other.

I don't know any married couple - including my parents who've been married for nearly 40 years and treat each other mostly like two lovestruck teenagers - that doesn't bicker or disagree or gripe or not wanna have sex enough or sometimes wants it too much, etc.


All married folks suffer from the same "ailment." It's called familiarity breeding contempt. When you know that's possible you just check it and make sure the annoyance you sometimes feel for one another never makes it that far.

My wife and I joke that when we're not pissing each other off over little stuff we're in love and the best of friends. The joke is the "when we're not..."

I feel you guys, and the married couples I wrote about have all been married for a long time. They somehow navigate the waters. I'm not opposed to getting wet. I think. I guess. Uhm, I don't know.

Okay I have never been married but almost all of my friends are married and many of them are very unhappy. I think it might be because they settled in the beginning and feel stuck now. But hey I am with you girl! I am still holding out hope that I will find some nice fella to chill out with.

Angie I'm still taking applications for you here in SoFla.

Lol, this is a funny post, but I must agree, married couples always have something to whine about whether to friends or family. I was once married and honestly I will say being single "ROCKS" but in the same token I miss the intimacy, friendship, camaderie...you have to find one who can tolerate you inside and out and it's not easy to find.
