And some of us stay together to honor our vows which are there because marriage has its ups and downs in freshness, joy and passion. We know we don't need to scratch everything we have built together just because we go through a short period of not feeling like honeymooners. We know that we'll get the feeling back again soon, and we do, because through it all we love each other.

Money and society have nothing to do with it.

And this is what she can't even imagine exists.

But sometimes people are just disastrously ill-suited to each other and the 7 to 10 year mark is when they decide that enough is enough.  I remember seeing somewhere the the most common times to divorce are before Year 2 (wrong from the start), between 7 and 10 (enough is enough) and between 25 and 30 (kids are grown).

EvilTwik would just murmur, "Yes, those grapes *do* look sour, Little Fox!" and move on.
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

I've been married for five years.  Guess that makes me half-classed.   >:D

Start planning the divorce, daahling. It is what all the high class people are doing these days.

Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

And thank you for demonstrating how very wrong this woman is with your classy, classy answer.
"Can't do anything with children, can you?" the woman said.

Poirot thought you could, but forebore to say so.

No, no, you can't!  You and Ron are meant for each other, despite all the bickering!  And you have Rose and Hugo to think about!  Hang in there!   :)
"I don't mean to be rude", he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.  "Best to say nothing at all."

I think I would have busted out laughing at that idiotic comment.  I just don't think I'd have been able to stop myself. 

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

UPDATE:

I'm going to a birthday party next weekend where this woman is likely to be present.

I look forward to amuse you all with whatever new outrageous thing she may say.  ;D
