    Marry a doctor that lives out of town. Works for us. Together 13 years, married 5.

    Marriage is a 100%-100% partnership. You must be willing to give everything for and to the one you love, both of you. The discussion should be about how I can make you happy – both of you. BUT, as in every partnership, you must have a plan, set goals, work together toward those goals.

    He needs to be talking to his partner.

    Correction: the husband learns to tune it all out. Or else.

    somethings you do want resolved before you get too deep in a relationship like having kids, their religious up bringing, finances, things that can lead to big trouble own the road. if Gene can’t be himself around Mary Lou any more and has to walk on egg shells that should be a deal breaker. still feel the ball is in ML’s court and she should make a move if she is still interested in a relationship with him.

    She is trying to change him too much, that is a deal breaker in any relationship, if you change or try to change the person you love they will no longer be the person you fell in love WITH. Eventually you will grow more alike. My hubby and I have been together 15 years and as of next month Married 13!

    I agree with Paul. It seems to me that the problems that Gene has brought up are too deep seated to be resolved by even a bunch of discussion. (Geez, I’m worrying about this as though it’s real!)

    He was doing good until he put his foot in his mouth.

    Nothing that an eraser can’t cure (right, JJ?)

    My mom always gave me this good advice, “You can not change another person, you can only change yourself.” and “To love others as you love yourself, you have to love yourself first.”

    Mon. was their 35th wedding anniversary.

    See, this might be what the problem is – Gene has taken Arlo’s attitudes. Right in front of Janis he says to “tune it all out”.

    Some people pick mates the same way they pick their noses. When you meet someone whom you can get along with, it can be pretty worthwhile. It all depends.
