Which ones are doomed? Any predictions?
Ok I'm a bit bored.
tearfully sifting through the ashes of their broken dreams?
And now you're going to feel cruel and mean when it actually happens.
we'll get the thread deleted if it makes us look bad.
You're on your own with this one.
but that will only make the inevitable pain a lot worse
My bird'll be fucking mental if she stays with me for life.
so in an ironic way I don't really understand?
don't really hear it much these days so thought I'd ask
I'm not judging, just curious
and you should stop
Still the thinking man's informal descriptive of choice for their partner.
Think I'd have `ladyfriend` down the bottom of this pile. Beneath even `smashpiece` and `The Quim™`
Is she wonderful?
check the OP.
I didn't mean it particularly personally....its just that you barely mention her...I like it when people refer to their partners (that we never meet) a lot.....like Mrs Bone, or Mrs CJ or Mrs Mannering
Anyway, who do you think is on the night bus to Dumpsville?
please ignore what i said
....we still good? :)
people who have been on here for years that I have no idea what they look like, how old they are, where they live, what their job is. Those people are the enigmas, the very glue that makes this place dynamite.
no inner tube
like I wonder who will be the first divorce
There's already been one in my bf's group, it was quite sad really :(
3 of them have ended in divorce already. Another are currently deep in couple's counselling.
Tis all very sad.
only really started this so we could make some snide bitchy comments and get the beeves flowing
I don't think EmmiLondonGirl and Alex_in_Ciderland will go the distance. Casseroles and Balonz might just make it.
Hang on. We don't know each other IRL do we? That'd be awkward.
I'm 5 years younger than you. And I think my mate in counselling and his wife will pull through :)
As someone who is bludgeoningly rational about everything... I think I'm mental for getting hitched given that there's a c.50% chance it'll end in separation...
...and there's already been 3 in my group of friends. Another one is 'in progress' at the moment. They have a 3 year old boy.
I went for beers with him the other night to try and give him a pep talk, but I reckon they're doomed.
so people shouldn't feel too bad :)
Some people don't deserve kids
be too scarred by the break up. I am basing this on nothing other than a gut feeling that it would be better to break up and have an amicable two-separate-parental-homes family and not ever really remember anything but that, than to limp on and have it all go nuclear when the kid is 9. not that I think there can be an optimal age, or a worst- kids are all so different.
you did actually pop into my head when I was typing that and I was hoping it wouldn't offend or upset you.
I guess hindsight is a wonderful thing, and at least those who 'limp on' are genuinely putting their back into making it work for their family (albeit some more than others, genuinely trying.)
Observation was spot on
Therefore I'm never actually breaking up with anyone. Easy.
