    It's kinda like shooting. You can either bring a crapload of mechanical skill, or you can learn to use the force, Luke. Or you can take more of a hybrid approach.

    But if you think you're going to just come in and completely control the situation toward a precise, predetermined outcome, you'd better have some unholy mad skills to deploy.

    Still married to my first and only wife for 49 years.

    I took "'til death do us part" seriously.

    +1 (And, I knew that's what you really meant).

    But, if you've found a good gal worth sharing your life with, just marry that girl!

    I was first married after schooling, etc... After not dating for a couple years, I met a woman who I admired greatly because she was so different than me and interesting (democrat, liberal etc.) (I had never heard of such things previously)(Now I watch History Chanel and Ancient Aliens and I swear it was "THEM" testing me). It lasted 3 years because I was a boyscout.

    That said, I am currently happily married to the sweetest woman and best mom on the planet. (and no, she doesn't complain when I occasionally but a new gun).

    We are seriously thinking about it. I just dont want to jinx it.

    She has her own house, I have my own, hear is the kicker. My Mom is 80 and fixing to need a Knee replacement. I have bought the old farmhouse my Mom and Dad built back before I was born and I am remodeling it. My Mom will have her on one Bedroom, bathroom kitchen and livingroom attached.

    The Girlfriend is all for that but I don't know exactly how it is gonna be whenever "All in the Family" move into that joint. o_O

    I made a promise to my Dad when he passed away I would take care of Mom. Well I do the best I can and I intend to keep doing the best I can. I just don't want to, or expect another person to jump into something like that.

    We will figure it all out. :cheers:

    Edited:

    I just thought about this. I have to sell my house, my Mom's house for her, and then the GF is gonna sell hers. If I aren't dead by stroke or in the asylum and make it through that, we ought to be good to go.

    Dated 9 years...celebrate our 20th anniversary in July so I guess 29 years.

    My wife's uncle is on his 4th although this last one looks like it will stick. My parents are at 53 years. All my uncles and aunts whose spouses are still alive are 50+. Those who became widows never remarried.

    My thankfully dead MIL was divorced 3 times, my MIL 1st husband who the Mrs calls dad is getting hitched for his third time in September.

    Divorce seems to follow families in my AO. My wife's side is riddled with it. In all my immediate and extended family there are three. A cousin was a hard core addict lead to her only divorce...another cousin's was annulled. Someone after dating 2+ years she didn't realize her husband was a gambling addict. The marriage lasted 4 months. My brother's is a long story...

    Married 1 time.

    In 2 months it will be 35 years married and almost 40 years together. Started dating as teens.

    We've checked all the boxes:
    • poorer
    • richer
    • sickness
    • health
    If anything happened to her, I wouldn't remarry.

    17 years first time, she had some mental health issues and perscription drug use problems. Stayed longer than I should of. Second time going on 19 years, good part of it not living together. We went to high school together. Meet again 25 years later, dated a few months and got married.

    Never thought I'd get married again, not that I was against it just didn't think I'd meet anyone to marry.

    I don’t plan on any changes in my marital status, but I don’t think I would ever get married again. Once is enough for me.
