Alright, I'll stop the bitter greetings. I'm divorced, I live in reality. I understand I'm not the young guy on the block anymore. Gratitude and kindness are big in my world. I see nothing wrong with being a homemaker, (most important job on earth, period). I love them, respect them, and praise them any chance I get. I understand some women have to work, I get it. I hope that is the exception and not the rule.
"Equality" and "Fairness" are words that will ruin your marriage every time. Nothing is ever fair or equal. Don't get hung up on them. I will never give birth to a child, you will probably never lose your arm or leg in a war. Love each other for who we are. We each carry special skills and qualities that the other will not possess, that's what makes this earth great.
Every relationship takes work. I don't care what you've heard or what appears to be a great relationship in your eyes. Every couple has their struggles at some point. It takes daily effort. Wake up in the morning with a clean slate, don't hold a grudge, do something nice, even if they don't deserve it. Most of all change yourself. We all have areas we can improve on, strive to do that every day. If someone points out one of your flaws, don't get angry, just look them in the eye and say, "I'll look into that."
I enjoy having fun when I get the chance. I am into whatever is close at hand. I do better in life when I have a couple times a week of being able to play some ball (any type), or exercise. It is usually only once every two weeks though.
Being on this site is probably the last thing I would ever do, but I realize that I have to be more proactive than I've been in the past. Please feel free to write.
