I vaguely understand the point, although she's missing a lot. When your partner isn't happy, it does tend to make you less happy as well. But there's a big upside when things are going well, your aggregate happiness ought to be higher. If it isn't...you shouldn't be married. If you think you can never be happier in a relationship than single, why get married?
saw a post on some guy's fb page- something like "tonight she's out partying with her friends. no one's taking care of our child... poor poor baby..." and he got a few replies, "so why don't you take care of your kid?"
saw this andy rooney on women over 40 post around yesterday, mostly from female relatives and friends over 40...
Andy Rooney says:
As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.
If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.
A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.
Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.
A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.
A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize.
For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.
then these ladies all go giving high fives to each other in comments. so I posted the snopes page saying andy rooney didn't say that shit:
"It just bugs me that anybody would put my name on something I didn't write," said Rooney from his New York office. He's been the object of this kind of hoax before, and another, he said, had just crossed his desk.
I asked him if he shared the author's affection for older women, and he said, "Not particularly."
and I realize just how sad these ladies giving each other a pat on their back passing around this "article"... I mean how pathetic can you be for:
a. thinking andy rooney's a depository of knowledge and intelligent opinion, and
b. posting shit on line getting your panties in a bunch without even bothering to check if its real.
