Wow, oh my, after reading all this, again wow. I am so GLAD I am single. Been divorced for 30 years after two wives. I am so fortunate. I do all my own house cleaning (when needed) do my own laundry and leave it in the dryer most of the time untill needed, do the dishes when I feel like it, do my own cooking and very good at it thank you. No *****ing from any one and believe it or not, the house is in good shape most of the time. Pay all the bills and money left I can do with it however I wish, wine, beer etc. I can have friends over anytime, including the Hooter girls without any one complaining, go to bed when I feel like it, get up whenever I wish.
Am I ever lonely, heck no and heck no again. Would not trade my lifestyle for anyones. Would I ever consider getting married again, NO WAY! I love my fredom and space.
Thanks for this thread GAC, it made me appreciate single life more than ever. Now I don't pretend that single life is all that great, you just have to be married before to appreciate it. BTW I was married to two fine women, still friends after all these years but married life just wasn't for me I guess.
But to you all that are husbands, stay married, just put your foot down when you need too. Life can be better if you do.
