  10. I don’t find all of these “ball and chain” jokes about marriage funny, they are just kind of…sad and pathetic. It doesn’t help that the media portrays married life as so joyless and sexless.
  12. I agree. It’s annoying! If you have contempt for your spouse, then why are you still together? If you’re not happy, either try to MAKE IT BETTER or end it. Complaining without any forward action is pathetic.
  14. My personal pet peeve is when guys who are married (its almost never women who do this) try to persuade their single guy friends not to get married! It’s all very “do as I say, not as I do”. If your relationship is miserable it doesn’t mean every else who enters a relationship will be too! Also, if you believe getting married is what destroyed your relationship, maybe you weren’t meant to be that person in the first place! (i.e., you were not compatible in the long run!)

  22. OTC – of course some of us care about marriage. It’s far easier to drive a thread to 1000+ comments when we are arguing and complaining than when we are purposely looking at the positive for a change.
  24. I can beat a dead horse like I’m getting paid for it. Truth is reading this thread has me wanting to put down the iPad and go be with my family. So I probably won’t be contributing to thread length. I don’t see it as a bad thing for anyone. ;-)

  33. You’re a real Negative Nancy sometimes, you know that? I specifically asked the happily married folks to share in the Comments. Believe it or not, you’re not my core constituency. I’m actually delighted with the new names that have popped up in the thread, and expect that thousands of people will read the follow-up post with some interest.

  38. That makes me happy. I don’t view comment thread length as an indicator of the quality of the post, the commenters, or the degree of interest in a particular topic. Sometimes it’s evidence of little more than a particularly obstinate debater. I serve up plenty of controversy here, not all of it useful. It’s nice to switch things up, give young people something positive to think about, information they can mull over and put to use.
