My drummer pal just went through a divorce about 2 years ago,  it was pretty amicable, but similar issue there.

"She's great at spending money, she absolutely sucks at making it..."  

my current wife (#3), she works hard, and spends every penny she makes. but at least she works. my 1st 2 wives refused to work,

1st divorce, May of '83. guy I knew named Mark. she decided she liked him better. I let her have the house, everything in it. I left with my guitars, stereo & an old chair my grandfather gave me.         my 2nd divorce May of '93, a guy I knew named Mark (another Mark) she decided she liked him better. I moved out (same f'n house. I got it back from #1) left with my guitars, stereo & the old chair my grandfather gave me. odd pattern had developed.  #2 wound up taking me to the freakin' cleaners. theres a lot more to the story . usually is ... 

when #3 and I started dating I asked her if she knew any guys named Mark ...

Going on 26 years. Teenagers when we got together. It ain't always perfect, nothing is, but we've always been there for each other and I certainly have no plans for any future  marriages come what may!

Never married. Had a long term GF in college who I could have married, but she graduated before me and we agreed to go our separate ways. After that I went into a career field that rewards moving every few years. Didn't want to be tied down to one place and just quit looking a long time ago. Can't say I feel like I'm missing much. I spent years rescuing Siberian Huskies, and that took a lot of my time and gave me something resembling family I guess. Done with that now for the foreseeable future and enjoying not having anyone depending on me at home. I can travel whenever I want and spend my money as I see fit. I'm sure I missed out on something, but I can't really miss what I never knew. My cousins had sons and carried on the name/genes, so that was never something I had to be concerned with. I should be financially set to retire at 50 and not have to work again if I don't want to. All in all I'm pretty happy to be a long term bachelor!

I married her for her money.  She married me for my good looks.  It turned out, we both got screwed. on that deal.

But, we still lasted 23 years.  Divorced, now, for 20.

I thought after I got divorced, I might remarry fairly quickly, without a long courtship because I thought (mistakenly, of course) that I "understood" women now, after 23 years of marriage.  However, I've found that not only do I not understand women any better than I did in college, but I've also become very picky.

In the last 20 years, I lived with an old college girlfriend for 3+ years, had another couple of 3+ year relationships, had a 4 month GF that told me she wanted to marry me, and right now, I'm 5 months into a thing that I would like to last....

But, there's probably no hope for me.

 

(Okay!  I feel better now to get all that crap off my chest.)

Yeah I hear that a fair amount sadly..  People in relationships who are some how more lonely than me...

Cant have it both ways though.. I do of course miss the physical side of things.. Even just simple hugs.. BUT for that and occasionally feeling a little lonely, I get to do what I want all the time... And like Pinch above I have always needed my own space so it mostly suits me but nothing is perfect.

Maybe one day again when I retire and get bored  🙂  

It's something I've realized as I've gotten older. I need my space, and I can't have it both ways. It's not fair on either one.

The good long-term relationships I've had, I look back upon fondly. There were reasons sh-t didn't work out that weren't either one's fault. That said, I couldn't "just be friends". If I've been emotionally involved, that's gonna stay with me.

I don't do sport f-cking anymore. I need neither chlamydia nor alimony. And I'm getting to an age where sex just for the sake of sex is just not that interesting to me. There are, er, online options to relieve the pressure!

Then again - you never know. Who knows.

Met my first wife in June of 1987, married her in June of 1988 in my living room. She passed away in that same living room on January 6, 2011. 

Met my current wife in September 2011 (online). Met her face to face in November 2011. Began a relationship in December 2011. Proposed in January 2012. Married in April 2012.

No regrets, no second thoughts. When you know, you know.

Sorry to hear about the first wife, but it's good to hear all the good second (and sometimes third) marriage stories.

Married at 19. 

Still married almost 44 years later - same girl! Wouldn't want it any other way. By default - I guess she still feels the same way.........
