    I don't know- the most? Trusting someone else completely maybe. The leat? An occaisional lack of privacy.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Re: Question for married people... (or divorced)

    What do you like the most about being married?
    * Having someone who loves and trusts you. Someone who will be there for you when you need a shoulder to lean on. Someone who I can share anything with and will share anything with me. A best friend... who does "more" than go to ballgames with me. Knowing that no matter how hard of a day I have had, I will go home and get a big hug and kiss. NOT HAVING TO HANG OUT AT BARS TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE.

    What do you dislike?
    * Just needing that occasional time alone and not being able to get it (this has something to do w/ kids too).

    Good.

    Someone to always talk to, they won't blow you off for someone else.

    Love that doesn't have to be earned

    The wife. That's what I like most about being married.

    WOY, I'll see your E Channel, and raise you a Lifetime Channel and a Sister-in-law with crazy get rich schemes that always put a dent in my bank account.

    What I like about being married
    Having someone to share with and who shares with you
    Support when you need it most
    Making babies, the ends as well as the means

    There's always someone there to talk to.

    HGTV, Lifetime, and Oprah
    We don't like the same kinds of movies. (and she doesn't ever want to see any of them in the theater)
    My golf game has suffered.

    I've done the marriage thing wrong and right (in that order ... which beats the tar our of the reverse).

    More than what I like/dislike, I'll tell you what I think is underrated and overrated.

    The thing I wish somebody had told me explicitly in my youth is that what makes a strong foundation for a marriage is absolute trust and commitment. Life will throw you curves. You can be swimming in greenbacks or goofy in love and think those things will get you through anything, but you can rest assured life will test your mettle ... and in doing so it will test the mettle of your relationship.

    When those challenges arise you need to be with someone on whom you can rely without qualification, someone who can step up when it's adult time.

    What's overrated about marriage is the endorphin rush of being in love. Yes, I still get that rush after 10 years with my wife, but endorphins are the garnish of life, not the meat and potatoes. What's underrated about marriage is being 100% committed to each other and the life you're building together. I've got to tell you that has come to mean more to me and it touches me at a more profound level than the basic mechanics of being in love ever did. Knowing that someone's in this with you every bit as much as you're in it with them is powerful stuff and it can take you places you never imagined.

    My ex and I never faced a challenge and we fell apart anyway. We were in love, but there wasn't much substance behind it. Had we faced some tough times we'd have failed each other miserably.

    I now understand the difference between trying to ride the warm fuzzies and being part of something built to last.

    That pretty much sums it up.

    The question is, what is the real purpose behind the post? Is WilyMoRocks planning on following Raisor down the aisle?

    She had better like watching UK Basketball, or I'd drop her like a sack full of doorknobs.
