  1. I was just about to remark on that Wolf. "They met when they were 15 and 17 and married probably way too early (when they were 23.) " Exactly. You are admirable, have a good head on your shoulders, and may I wish you a happy birthday and much luck and success in the future. I can understand you must feel, as if you are watching a train out of control heading for a wreck, and although thte brakes are there, the person does not wish to apply those brakes.
  2. "But the road he is taking now will have him end up in a small apartment with no friends, no respect and not a lot of money. " And I would bet good money his new situation will not last. I can think offhand of several very similar situations in 3D I know of. All ended disastrously and destructively. One acquaintance, in his mid-fifties, loving wife (very attractive), took up with a 58 yo separated woman with three adult children, nothing special, rather dowdy creature. Everyone thought he had gone stone mad, and he probably had. She got every dime she could out of him, even a p
  3. Listen Wolf. It is very wrong of your parents to put all this on your shoulders. You need to be upfront and tell them that. Tell them they need to talk with an objective third party (not you). It is most unfair. Tell him you DO NOT want to hear about this other woman. Don't even enter into any argument with your father. He is an adult and this is his situation. At the moment your father is blinded, sure he may lose money, and all he has. But nothing is going to stop him on this downhill slide. What dancingF said "In fact, the biggest mistake they made is the facade they mai
  4. "......he had changed when he had his second heart attack two years ago. A doctor told him that he had way too much stress in his life and that he should think of himself more to avoid a third one" Some people take drastic action when they get that kind of news. It happens.
  5. OP: "I’m in my mid-twenties and I had a wonderful (atleast that’s what I always considered) childhood. Both my parents were always there for me and they helped me where ever they could. I always thought of my father as a great and wise man. He made me laugh, cheered me up when I was sad and always had great advice for me and others. He sacrificed a lot to keep the family happy. Me and my sister always came first." Thing is, OP, you are now an adult, and if I were you I'd keep out of this situation. You are not a marriage counsellor or therapist. People disappoint us, and often. Bu
  6. For you, Sportser. Enrique & Guillermo De Fazio. Brothers!
  7. "It's just she has a quick-temper and is sensitive." You find this kind of person interesting?
  8. Don't know Zeino. "Do women get hurt more easily than men? One thing is for sure, they certainly ask dafter questions sometimes lol. And sure, which is what the article propounds, one can tell the truth in a kindly and diplomatic fashion. Not everyone has diplomatic skills though! White lies? I fear we all probably tell them. Just now I recall a relative of ours who called (I was visiting with my mother at the time), and she had on this dress, the type you'd need to grab your sunglasses to look at. She wanted to know how she looked. What could we say!!! The dress was awful,
  9. ttps 3027541/why-all-your-little-white-lies-arent-as-harmless-as-you-think Harris believes you should never tell a lie—not even the "white" ones we use to spare others discomfort. "They tend to be the only lies that good people tell, while imagining that they are being good in the process," he says. People often tell white lies to avoid sharing truths that feel awkward. For example, your wife might ask how you think she looks in her new outfit or your coworker might ask your thoughts on an idea. You don’t have to volunteer every negative thought you have, says Harris, but when you’re as
  10. What Wiseman said: "Oh my! No. She's not looking for advice if she got offended. She's one of those types that uses the "does this make me look fat?" type rhetorical questions to hear "You are perfect the way you are". Yes, it's convoluted but that's how some of these types operate. They pose a question not hoping for a logical solution, but hoping for a specific reassuring response." Sigh! Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies......
  11. Lovely couple, J.Man. Although I'd almost take you for brother and sister. L. Also, J.Man. You look soooo young!
