    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I want to get married just so I can finally understand what's ostensibly funny about Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?.

    Suggest you try dating from your local psychiatric ward.

    For those of you that married career oriented women,

    Do you guys have kids and if so, does she still work?

    How do you feel about her not working while your kids are out of school?

    How do you feel about her working when the kids are young (before pre k) and hiring a "mother for hire".

    I say mother for hire because I have notice there is a negative perception of nannies. In actuality they play a crucial role in the development of a child and parents are trusting them with forming who their child is going to be. (IMO)

    General question

    How do you feel with one person having the final word in decision making?

    How many of you married women younger than you? By how much?

    Anyone marry a close friend from, undergrad or prep?

    Can anyone chime in on what it's like in a gay marriage?

    I haven't gotten married yet, nor do I have the thought, but it is a requirement given by my parents that any girl I marry has to sign a pre-nup.

    Women like to be dominated and lead. Instead of asking her, for once, try telling her. For e.g., instead of asking what do you want to eat, tell her you are in the mood for Thai, Italian etc. Instead of asking her what would you like to do, tell her you are in the mood for a drive or whatever. No woman is going to tell you she wants to be lead or dominated - the plot is lost the moment she has to tell you that. Her foul-temper comes from her having to lead. She does not want to. Try taking charge.

    I know this is a bit noir, but use them, instead of pedestalizing them.

    You'd have been better off leaving out the "dominated" part of that.

    It's a figure of speech, but get the hint.

    Old, bitter, misogynistic men are as annoying as Oprah "your man better worship the ground on which you walk" feminazi women.

    For people wanting the "perfect life" I can see why marriage would be a viable option. But perfect can turn to nightmare very fast and then you have to deal with the legal implications.

    To be fair, the former is far more effective than the latter.

    My experience has shown this to be exactly the case.
