The rules for dating a married man
It tells me that woman is too self absorbed to be a reliable partner in the future. If you and I had fallen in love twenty years ago, gotten married and had a family and you had put on the weight, I would still be with you, but we didn't and so I see no need to accommodate your lack of character and discipline. I won't seriously consider dating a woman who has a lot of hangups about sex.Since I have had all my children, since I can cook and clean and make a damn good living for myself and my children, you bring nothing to the table I need in the traditional sense.He did tell you to be "keepers at home", if you are so caught up in church work that you are making your family the second priority in your life you aren't following your own rule book. I see no need to potentially work myself into an early grave to keep you in shiny trinkets and new cars. Saw the comments about people in their 40s dating and this is what came to mind.
To break the vow of "til' death do us part" over an emotional state that may or may not be another person's fault, is shallow and shows a lack of emotional maturity. Don't give me that crap about how happy you are with yourself, you're not and we both know it.
I was married and against my wishes the marriage ended.
I loved my wife deeply, she decided she no longer loved me and she wasn't "happy". I didn't ask to be in my 40s and single, but reality being what it is I live with it. I might have a steady girlfriend if the occasion arises, but she'd have to be pretty damn spectacular for me to make that leap.
Reasons, in fact, that have more to do with your happiness than anything else.
So, if you find yourself dating someone who is already taken, remember this:1. One of the reasons women stay with married men is because they promise they won't be married for long.I date for the occasional bit of company and to occasionally have sex, that's about it. Dog's are much easier to deal with than women at this point in my life.
