your spouse again?

Kind of an off-shoot of GAC's thread and a poll a local Dayton radio station had this morning. Don't worry, it isn't a public poll, the little woman or man will never know your answer.

I've only been married for 5 months, so I'd be in serious trouble if my answer was anything but "yes."

But, seriously, we are each other's best friends, I can't imagine ever being with anyone else.

Absolutely. If not, I'd be divorced.

The poll on the radio this morning ended up (at least when I went in the building and left my radio) being about 70/30.

With only 30% marrying the same person.

I'm smart enough to know I got pretty darn lucky. If I had decided to wait for something better, I'd be waiting a very long time.

To this day, I still don't really understand why someone like my wife married someone like me. But I ain't complaining.

Sounds like they polled a lot of miserable people.

I'd marry my wife again, but I would not marry my first wife again...;)

I've been married twice. I was amazed during my first marriage at how wrong I got it. For the past 10+ years I've been amazed at how right I got it. Marrying my wife is the best decision I've ever made and I sincerely doubt that anything in the future will come close to topping it.

I find it interesting that no women have commented on this thread about their answer. If I had to guess, I'd say that the lion's share of those 70% "No" responses were from women. I think it's always been that way, and will likely continue to be that way.

For the record, yes, I would marry my wife again. But to be perfectly honest, I've met other women since our marriage whom I know I would be quite happy marrying as well. I'm not afraid to admit that.

And I also believe you can love two people at the same time--it's the thing that makes life a living hell. Avoid it if you can.

You sure the yes and no responses aren't the other way around. When I got in to work this morning it was 70% yes and 30% no. So unless they took a major swing in the other direction, I think the majority said yes. Regardless, 30% is a fairly high number.

I agree with you on all counts FCB.

My wife and I have had a pretty rocky marriage over the years. The last few years have had me thinking quite a few times that it wasn't going to last much longer. We just seemed to have grown apart. We weren't fighting or angry with each other, we just weren't close...at all. We made a decision about five months to basically start over and make it work. It's been tough but great at the same time. To finally answer the poll question, I'd have to say yes.

Without a doubt. After all, she did send me to Reds Basball Heaven a few years back.:D

I said no, my wife drives me crazy but I am too comfortable to leave.

My brother in law is on his third marriage. His current wife is about ten years younger than him. He has one daughter from his second marriage and two from this one. I commented to my wife (his sister) that he's so happy and they're so compatible, he just wishes they could have met earlier and married. He then pauses and says, "But wait, she would have been in elementary school." Yikes!

I agree with this sentiment entirely, and think the whole soul mate thing is a lot of b.s.

Marriage is a lot of work, even if you have a compatible partner, which I do.

That's the key. There are too many people out there, it seems to me, looking for perfection in a mate. It's like the cast of Seinfeld.

I won't change a thing, even if I could.

I'd do it again, heck yeah.
I'm not lying when I say I think I'm probably the luckiest guy in the world. I married up. Way up. Intellectually...up. Genetically...up. All around, up.
So up, I can see my house from here up.

And my marriage is not a lot of work. We haven't had an argument in years. Raising the kids is work, but being married is a breeze for me.

We haven't had an argument in hours.

Definitely yes. She puts up with a lot of my quirks, is a good cook, is pretty good at things that can't be mentioned on a family board, and doesn't talk to me during 24.

Almost four years in and I'd definitely say yes. It'd be hard to imagine my life without her, and I really don't want to.

your spouse again?

Yes I would.

Would she marry me again is where it gets kinda iffy. ;)

If I was God I couldn't make a better a better wife for myself.

Yeah, cause they were talking about how sad it was that so many people were unhappy.

But I get to work early. Way too early. So they had over a couple hours of show left when I was listening.

I have to leave for work now, but I'll give my answer tonight.

Hey, I have to apologize for this post- I'm pretty sure my wife was using the laptop last night.

In a heart beat.

We've had our share of disagreements over our decade together.

But we've had a ton of laughs together. The kind of laughs that I can't imagine having with anyone else.

Mine either. I'm not even sure what it is that you're supposed to be working at.

Of course, I'd marry her again.

Dont want to mess with the time-space continuum.

My knee-jerk reaction to this question was shock that anyone would ask such a silly question. I mean, I couldn't imagine my life without my wife ... we truly were made for each other. She does things that bring a smile to my lips on a daily basis that are just part of her nature ... she doesn't do it to please me, it is the way she is. The reverse is also true, I can make her smile and laugh effortlessly ... things that I do which would irritate most people, she loves. And loves me for it. Sure, we disagree on what to spend our money on, or whether to even spend it, and many other relativley meaningless things, but the moments of pure joy we've had together would be unimaginable without her by my side.
Then I remembered that she is my second wife. So really, my answer would be no AND yes. The funny part is that I think I needed the experience of the first marriage to show me what NOT to do...so my answer would be Maybe and YES!
How's that for a definitive conclusion?
