    My grandpa told me; “ Sometimes you have to decide if you want to be right, or you want to be happy.” - He was married for 50+ years before he was called by the Lord.

    The advice earlier about not solving her problems and just letting her talk is SOLID. It took me far too long to learn this one, and still haven’t completely learned. Men are problem solvers, it’s what we do! We hit 16 years last August.

    We'll hit 41 in March. Marriage is just plain assed hard work at times. Toughest job you'll ever have. You'll hit rough patches, I'd bet it'd be rare if you don't so just gut through tough shit, don't stray and it should come out good in the long run.

    Just remember women don't think like humans and are the most dangerous animal known to man.

    22 years second time around, it’s all in the partner you chose!! Big tits, big mouth and a skill set don’t last long if she’s a bitch, trust me!! Find a sweet one and you’re golden.

    We just celebrated our 53rd anniversary last week. We met in junior high and have been a couple ever since.
    Advise? None...gotta take it day by day and before you know it the years racks up. It's been a great marriage but there were several bumps on the road but it all came out in the wash.

    Humans wouldn't have evolved to our present state if monogamy was truly in our "jeans". Religions and living in clans came up with the concept of marriage to help keep the "piece". When you generally died before 35 you never had to be beholden to anyone for more than 10-15 years at the most, so the answer may lie in the question to who has the best marital device. 31 years here.

    It takes two.... do your part and she has to do hers.... I was not good at picking.... down the road you find they had a bad past of lies and deceit that carries over you cannot always see through the lies early....

    I have a great one now and we really enjoy each other.... as long as no crazy shit comes out down the road, both of you just need to remember the look your eye that you have right now and don’t sweat the small shit.... really no reason not to be happy!

    I'm with Chris don't do it. I was married 25 years and in the end it was not good. Someone else here said asked the ? "whats the mother like". Very good advice. If I had met my ex wife mother before we were married I wouldn't run fast the other direction. Mother in law was a total bitch. Ex turned out to be just like her. And divorce in this state is fucked when it comes to the man. I also liked the comment about taking notes to bring up later when she tries to say "I never agreed to that or we never had the discussion".

    This man knows whats up, It really is all in the personality. Get a decent looking one with a sweet personality and like he said you're GOLDEN. Trust us you wont last long married to a bitch your life will be miserable no matter how good looking she is. Oh yeah 18 years married.

    Tom Leykis always said "there's no benefit for a man to get married"

    I believe that statement whole heartedly, but if it's your will, understand the consequences if shit don't work.

    Whatever you do don't tell her to just calm down. That never ends well. 32 years next week.

    :indabutt: and the shocker are only for the courtship phase.

    Find someone who shares similar financial and spending habits. Communicate. Do things together. Good luck.

    26 years this past March.

    Will be married 28 years in January. Together just over 30 years.

    My wife is a saint. Not sure how I got so lucky. We are almost complete opposites in many things.

    Be yourself. If she wants to change you, you are in for a lousy marriage. Don't try and change her. Respect her always. Be giving, and never take your drama to bed. Hash it out before you hit the pillow, and never be too big/proud to say you are sorry.

    Sometimes she will want to go to see her family, and you want to go fishing. FAMILY FIRST always.

    NEVER take her love and loyalty for granted. Cherish her, but don't let her walk on you or push you around. You are equals. Be a good father to her children.

    Tell her how beautiful she is when she isn't expecting it. Compliment her in front of friends and family.

    All the best to you and your wife. Remember marriage is not easy. But it is easy to quit on marriage.
