    Why is it that soooo many people falsely think that bringing kids into thisworld will save their marriage and/or create that missing link to eternalbliss?
    Well, I think people believe this because it is a myth that many
    cultures push.

        Now if things keep going the way they have been, I can't see myself being with her for the rest of my life. To top things off, we are trying to have kids.
        Holy ****, are people really this stupid?????
        Yes, sadly they are.

            Those studies tend to be flawed because they don't ask the question
            "Why did you get married?" In the same way that some couples have
            children to try to mend a failing marriage, couples who are living
            together often seem to get married as a way to try to mend a failing
            relationship.
            This is why its important to wait to get married. So you can grow,mature, and discover yourself deeper.
            I completely agree with this sentiment.
            I think its time to sit down with your wife and take a hard look at yourmarriage. Then, work on it before you bring kids into the world ---bringing kids into the world should NOT be done to hopefully improve themarriage troubles you have currently. I would strongly urge you not tohave kids until your marriage is turned around and until you have givenit a few more years of testing.
            Again, completely agree.

                your kidding right? most people spend their whole lives working.. why does a person work? for the money.
                If I worked solely for the money, I would have chosen a higher-paying profession. But I work for pleasure too. If I had millions, I'd still do the same work I'm doing now.
                My dad says there are two kinds of jobs:

                (1) the kind that pay well; and
                (2) the kind you enjoy.

                and I think he's right for most people. I'm a patent attorney, and that
                *can* pay well, but not if you work the hours I work. If I worked long
                hours, I wouldn't like my job anymore.

                                I thought that if you were fired for cause that you would not get
                                unemployment. I guess I thought wrong.
