    The ultimate biological clock.

    @DylanThomas3.14159

    They split up a while ago.

    Mark is being incredibly rude, while Mike remains long-suffering with his friend.

    Maybe he should find a new hobby, like space jumping.

    I disagree about marriage being a fraud. Yes, there is the legal aspect. But on the human front, people have have a need to make formal commitments in relationships of that magnitude. You could do away with the legal and religious “requirements” and still people would marry. Let’s face it, they’re not required to marry now, and the tax benefits aren’t all that great.

    I think they should both just go to sleep.

    But before they do, they should hit the phone’s DO NOT DISTURB button.

    of course marriage is a fraud. it’s there to satisfy longings of connections that some feel are transient and impermanent. aka the seven year itch. man is not meant to be monogamous. procreating is our main purpose for life. primarily religion is there to sanctify the connection. just look at mormonism, Christianity and all the others faith based beliefs/religions, they are used as an excuse to satisfy that connection. in a state approved connection.

    look at any right wing religion today, all bs and no substance. control issues, lol

    not to say there aren’t those who find the right one and stay together “forever.” few and far between, in reality.

    “The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop, at late or early hour.

    Now is the only time you own. Live, love, toil with a will.
    Place no faith in time. For the clock may soon be still."

    Actually most (over half) of married couples stay together ‘forever’.
    The roughly 50% divorce rate is skewed by the number of multiple divorcees. Consider that Elizabeth Taylor got divorced 8 times; that makes up for 8 happily married couples.

    “procreating is our main purpose for life”


    Evolution rules. It dictates our religions. It plays with our species Homo sapiens as a cat plays with a mouse before it kills and eats it. Our the time of our existence on this planet is but the blink of an eye compared to the lifetimes of many other, such as dinosaurs and horseshoe crabs.


    Those who have crossed
    With direct eyes, to death’s other kingdom
    Remember us — if at all — not as lost
    Violent souls, but only
    As the hollow men
    The stuffed men
    —T.S.Idiot, er, Eliot

    Some people really shouldn’t marry at all. Samuel Butler had this to say about Jane and Thomas Carlyle.
    “It was very good of God to let Carlyle and Mrs. Carlyle marry one another, and so make only two people miserable and not four.”

    The thought of two men getting married is just plain silly. Why don’t they go to a psychotherapist instead?

    Chase was a dead ringer—facially and intellectually—for Edmund Burke.
