You continue to make my point for me. Certainly I'm not married - that's no secret. I don't have to have murdered someone to give council on the perils of being a murderer. I don't have to be an AIDS victim to suggest that someone practice safe sex, and I need not have ever been married to offer advice on avoiding the common pitfalls of marriage. One could effectively argue (as I will now), that being married (this is the part where I talk about you) taints one's ability to be objective about the matter. I, on the other hand, have no agenda - only disclosure of the truth. Like I said, get married or don't. It's all the same to me. I only urge people to enter into it with a full understanding of the facts and not some idealistic fantasy based on how you would like the world to be in lieu of how it actually is - truth.NavyWife2001 said:Since you have avoided the "are you married question" I would guess you aren't. When you do get married then maybe you can give advice!
