@Puppy Love:  Thanks for the laugh.  I needed that.



WTF is wrong with people offering unsolicited marriage advice anyway?  Guess God was on a coffee break when her first two marriages fell apart.  Such a shame.

Well… she’s on her 3rd marriage… she has tons of practice so must be REALLY GOOD AT IT by now.

As much as she assaulted you with her opinion your judgement sounds a bit harsh – she’s an irrelevant person?

Oh geez!  I don’t think sometimes others hear themselves speak. Wink

I haven’t gotten marriage advice like this, but we did get both sides of the spectrum on having kids right before or after we got married.  Anything from (right before),  “When are the babies coming? How about now?!”  to  “Definitely wait to have kids for a few years, enjoy your marriage and each other first.”  Now, I appreciate people caring/wanting to be involved in our lives, but pretty sure we’re going to have kids when we feel ready regardless of your advice.  We can still wait until we’re married like we wanted as well as still enjoy eachother after we have kids. 

Silly people! Tongue Out

She sounds like a “surrendered wife”… anyone else remember that awful book?

My grandmother married 8 times and she loves to impart marital advice. She never met a man or husband she didnt like. Married 8 times, 2x a widow, and two of them she married twice.  We all just roll our eyes.

If she gives me advice I just shake my head and agree and then move on. Of course I would never take it. It is quite funny though some of the things she says..Granted she is 90 now but its still funny.

doesn’t even have to be marriage. I know a girl who gives relationship advice to everyone (I can’t understand why people constantly go to her for it), having not had a single one work out. one lasted a summer, one lasted 3 weeks. hasn’t had one since.

I actually might take marriage advice from someone on their third marriage than someone on their first.

My father is on his third marriage and it has been amazing. They have been together for ten years now, and their relationship works perfectly..even though they are far from perfect. He completely understands compromise now and the importance of mutual respect and not fighting to be the head honcho in the relationship.
