Ah, 'tis better to love a woman and be disappointed than to eat your soup alone.

If you are a male and want to be married for a long time you have to learn these 2 things:
1) What's hers is hers and what's your's is hers.
2) The only argument you'll ever win is the one you don't have.

I don't think it's possible to understand those 2 things until you're in it because nothing is the same after you are legally bound to a female. No, living together isn't the same thing.

I follow the maxim: "you can be right or you can be happy."
Try to excel at telepathy and body nuances.
