    • There are times I would give my eye tooth to be single. I have been married more then half my life, I got married at 19 and I’m 44 now.
      I love my husband, but I feel that there are things I missed out on by getting married so young.
      We have grown up together and it has not always been easy (hell, it still is hard today!)
      But when I talk to my single friends and they complain of the lack of good men out there, it gives me something else to think about.
      I think we always want what we can’t have and the grass looks greener on the other side.

    • I hear you, BB. If my marriage ends, that will be IT for Iggy. I do not have the strength to do it again, I can say that with much conviction.
      I will just be a hoochie mama and piss my sons off with young men their age! LOL!
      Teeky! Great idea!

    • When I was married I enjoyed being married, every day.. I loved being married.  On all three of my previous marriages.  I never ever remember thinking I wanted to be single, I only remember that when trouble happened or an arguement I would wish it didnt occur.  Or think if there was something I could do to change it or make it better, but alas, I could not.

      So my answer, when I was married was NOPE.

    • I like Teeky’s answer - as for me, it would be better if 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off.

    • Mostly I like being married.  I’ve spent my whole adult life married, just not all to the same man.  Married the first one at 19, sprent 15 years raising him and wondering if I wouldn’t be better off single. Divorced him and married a far better man.  

       My husband is far from perfect, but I love him.  I see what’s out there for single men and I have no desire to be single again.  If I were suddenly widowed, there’s no way I’d marry again.

    • My first time married was an absolute disaster and I swore I would never get married again.

      Today, with Scott, I can’t imagine not having him by my side. I love being married to my husband.

    • I have NO idea what it’s like to be single.  I have been married to the same man since I was 17.  It’s not perfect, but it’s not disastrous.  Six kids, anniversary # 27 coming up on the 23rd of this month and it looks we are pretty much joined at the hip.  We do not want to be single.  Even after all the bulls**t we’ve had to go through.

    • fxydiva, I thought of the on and off time carefully.  First I wanted to say 6 months on and 6 months off.  Then I was afraid it would take me too long to adjust.  Then I thought a month, still.  3 weeks, again.  So my time frame is 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off would be perfect for me. happy

    • I hear ya Chinadoll!!  What do you think of the 3 months on 3 months off??  LOL  I think that would work for me.  During the 3 months off, I would miss him by the 6th week and when the 3 months off ended, I would really be glad to see him.  Then, about 4 weeks into our 3 months on, I would be ready for it to end.......I think that’s a do-able plan for me  LMAO!!!

    • Being married is hard work...I believe that a relationship and marriage should gel together, not exhaust you!

    • fxydiva: I gave this more thought.  I was thinking, why don’t my hubby and I live separately.  If I like, I would visit and spend the nights with him.  When I am sick of it, I come back to my sanctuary.  One condition, when I am in my little private sanctuary, he can call and sweet talk to me but never allow to ask me, “where are my socks and when’s dinner ready?”

    • Like Tuliplady I married my first husband at 23 he was 30.  I spent 15 years raising him and got tired of it and got divorced.  I vowed never to marry again. After being single for 5 years I met my current husband and we’ve been together 6 years.  I can not see myself without him.  I am a relationship based person and I love being married to my husband.

      Maintaining a relationship is hard work. I heard the best line on the season finale of Starter Wife this week.  Someone was describing relationships and said....Relationships are a challenge but they must not be an ordeal. (Or something to that fact).  I thought it was a great line.  My 1st marriage was an ordeal.  My current marriage is a challenge with more ups than downs.
