I read that earlier, and felt it to be dead on. The parts about do you create or consume and what is taking action especially resonated with me.Gotta be crazy to stay in a marriage from which you get nothing.
Everybody gives to get something or other. No such things as selflessness. Our selfish ego is always there, expectant, waiting for something in return.
Typically, the more we give the more we get. The less we give, the less we get.
You'll only ever get more than you give for a while.
Who works for free?
That right there puts you in the 99% chance of getting divorced category. It's like me chillin' with Mitt Romney. There's no way we could be able to understand each other.A typical example: Early on, she worked part-time at her parent's business, and brought home maybe 10-15% of what I made.
I think that's called schizophrenia. You're lucky she didn't cut your head off to get the magic stones inside your brain.I indicated that not only would we not get a refund, but that we had to pay because she didn't withhold enough, she went on a ballistic tirade about how "she ALWAYS got a refund" and how it was "all my fault" and yelled and screamed that I had taken "Her Refund" and that I was to give it back to her "or else". A complete refusal to look at the facts.
Ouch. The idea that I was operating under at the time was that I'd make the money and she'd do the child-raising ( except that she wasn't able to get pregnant until a few later due a medical issue that wasn't diagnosed until later) Typical couple in their mid-20s sort of thing. I hope you're not saying that any couple that tries that has a 99% chance of divorce. Now, it's true that my marriage was doomed, but that had more to her having boyfriends on the side that I didn't know about and not the income disparity.That right there puts you in the 99% chance of getting divorced category.

I can't remember if she ever got that diagnosis. She did get diagnosed as manic/depressive and Bi-Polar Disorder along the way though. I don't think that was the real problem though. She was spoiled - I'm surprised when i go to wikipedia and look up "entitilement complex" that it doesn't bring up a page with her picture .... :rofl:I think that's called schizophrenia.
