I'd think you were just being pessimistic, but the other day I filled out a form for life insurance, and the options for marital status included a variety of things, including "divorced", "widowed", etc... and the ONLY thing I could select for "Married" was... get this, "First Marriage."

How sad and pathetic is it that the box to say you're married says "First Marriage."

That assumes there will be another one at some point.

Uh oh... what itches? I'm only going into my 6th year, what is supposed to happen to me that everyone gets divorced?

My wife nags from time to time, but she's very responsible with her money (something that is very rare).

It's a term that represents the time into a marriage that a man wants to cheat on his wife. Supposedly after 7 years of marriage, every man wants to cheat. There was a movie about it also, it starred Marilyn Monroe.

Heh, I often find myself talking about my wife as my "current wife." Not sure what is going on in my head, but I am not aware of it!

I will see all of your predictions and raise you a "who gives a crap?" I don't understand pop culture. It seems people that get caught up in all that crap must be really bored with their own lives. Hell I can hardly make enough time for the things I HAVE to do and the things I WANT to do, not sure how people have the free time to follow garbage like this. I don't just mean this for the royal wedding, I mean all celebrities.

Your country is too young to have a Heritage. It is not about the PERSONS, it is about HERITAGE. I am not affected by the two who are getting married. I can't stand all that hype. But to see hundreds of thousands of people gathered together in Public, enthralled by the atmosphere, the sheer harmony of spirit, the magnificence of the Architecture...the lines upon lines of scarlet and black of the soldiers and Guards who might well be dying in foreign Lands within days or weeks...the magnificence of the incredible sight of Spitfires and Lancasters flying overhead to acknowledge the event, or for the brief seconds that flypass gave us all to acknowledge the bravery and fortitude of our Military and Airforce..AND BE GRATEFUL to them all.
And to be reminded of the most wonderful day in MY life, when I was blessed with the best wife any man could ask for.
And I give thanks for it all, not just those two young people setting out on a life together which would tear most of us apart within weeks.
Perhaps the cynicism in this thread reflects deep-down discontent at your own situation? I don't know....but I know for SURE that my Heritage means the World to me, and the slow destruction of it tears my heart out.
William will stand a better chance of living the Royal Dream, because He has been allowed to grow, to experience life as a Helicopter pilot, both on the stages of War, and now as a search and rescue chopper pilot for air/sea rescue. He has not had to undergo the cloistering of young Royals which his father, and many generations before, experienced in a life totally divorced from reality.
And to start wagering how long their marriage will last is the most base of emotions that a human could express. Shame on you all.
Why not wish them the best of a World that we ALL would dream of? Why pillory two relatively young and innocent people in their happiness?
I am PROUD of what was unfolded in London today. THAT is MY heritage. Please don't mock it.

Yeah, I guess that makes sense, but there's more to a marriage than just sex. My wife submits pretty much whenever I ask of it... and she's got big boobs, and blond hair, so there's not much else in that area that I really want in terms of sex.

Not trying to brag here, but I had an unnecessary amount of sex before I was married. I dated this one woman for about 2 and a half years that asked for it at least 2 to 3 times per day. I could NEVER in my wildest dreams keep up with that now, but I was 19, and she was 34... we were both at our peaks. I've dated a few other girls semi-seriously, but I think if I was ever in a realtionship like that again, it would probably break. I even remember this one time where I was doing it, and I heard a really loud pop where the shaft meets the rest of the body. It scared the **** out of me... to say the least... things were "OK", but it was kind of touch and go for a month after that. I was worried I had broken something.

But, my wife and I get along really well. It's very much the Dharma and Greg kind of situation. I'm the hard core conservative, and my wife is absolutely a beatnick. She even was a manager at an Urban Outfitters, and she owns a 1973 Volkswagen Bus...

But... there's always the shower...


EDIT: I have a huge craving for Chinese food now, after watching that 5th Element scene...

Amongst our friends we are the only couple that has made it past the 10 year mark.

11 years and chugging along.

So I give it 8 years.

Sorry, but the seven year itch is now the "new three year itch."


The 7-year itch is now the 3-year glitch

http://www.reuters.com/arti...dUSTRE7276UF20110308


LONDON | Tue Mar 8, 2011 5:19pm EST
(Reuters) - The "three-year glitch" has replaced the "seven-year itch" as the tipping point where couples start to take each other for granted, according to a new survey.

Weight gain, stinginess, toe-nail clippings on the bathroom floor and snoring are a few of the passion-killers that have led to a swifter decline in relationships in the fast-paced 21st century, said the study commissioned by Warner Brothers to promote the release of comedy film "Hall Pass" in UK cinemas.

The survey of 2,000 British adults in steady relationships pinpointed the 36-month mark as the time when relationship stress levels peak and points to a new trend of "pink passes" and "solo" holidays away from partners and spouses that many Britons resort to in order to keep romance alive.

"Longer working hours combined with money worries are clearly taking their toll on modern relationships and we are seeing an increasing trend for solo holidays and weekends away from marriages and relationships in order to revive the romantic spark," said pollster Judi James who oversaw the survey.

The poll compared feedback from those in short-term relationships (defined as less than three years) and people who were married or in longer-term partnerships.

The findings showed that 67 percent of all of those surveyed said that small irritations which are seemingly harmless and often endearing during the first flushes of love often expand into major irritations around 36 months.

More than half of the Brits surveyed (52 percent) who were in younger relationships said they enjoyed sexual relations at least three times a week, compared to just 16 percent of those in relationships older than three years.

This suggests that as we get older together, romance gives way to day to day practicalities, supported by the fact that 55 percent of busy people in longer-term relationships admit that they now have to "schedule" their romantic time.

The report also said that those in the first flush of love can look forward to an average of three compliments a week from their partners - a figure which falls to an average of a single weekly compliment at the three-year high tide mark.

The prognosis gets worse the longer we stay in relationships, three in 10 of those surveyed that have been in a relationship for five years or more said that they never receive any compliments from their partners.

The findings also showed that more than three quarters (76 percent) of all people surveyed responded that "individual space was important" within a relationship and pointed to a rise of individual activities.

A third (34%) of those who have been seeing their partners for longer than three years have at least two evenings a month defined as a "pass" or a "ticket" where it is accepted that they can pursue their own interests and 58 percent of the same sample group enjoy regular holidays without their partners.

The top 10 everyday niggles and passion-killers: 1. Weight gain/lack of exercise, 13 percent; 2. Money & Spend thriftiness, 11 percent; 3. Anti-social working hours, 10 percent; 4. Hygiene issues (personal cleanliness), 9 percent; 5. In-Laws/extended family - too much/too little, 9 percent; 6. Lack of romance (sex, treats etc.), 8 percent; 7. Alcohol - drinking too much, 7 percent; 8. Snoring & anti social bedtime habits, 6 percent; 9. Lapsed fashion-Same old underwear/clothes, 4 percent; 10. Bathroom habits - Stray nail cuttings etc., 4 percent.

It is my theory that most men do not want to cheat but, are ignored for to long. All a guy needs is an old fashion.

Don't take us seriously, Elvis....we mean well in a sophomoric kinda way.

It's been said that, in roughly 200 years, America went from infancy to senility....without passing through maturity.
