    If -
    and that's a big if - I choose to commit to a partner again, said partner will be self sufficient and have their own lives and financial affairs sorted to take care fo their families, and they can make what ever choices they like about what to do with theirs. At this age, if I chose to partner again, all of those possibilities will have been out on the table for due conversation and agreement. Who will take care of whom if care taking is required will be well established and likely in writing if it is a dedicated life-partnership.

    Believe it or not, us TGR geezers actually do think beyond the next cocktail and what our futures might look like. I can make those statements because they are what I choose to do after considering the possibilities, but they are far from 'blanket'.

    And you still can do all of those things, if you are intentional and communicative, without a judge's signature and a piece of jewelry.

    I get that you feel like you were burned but ohh hey honey, I know we could save over grand a month on insurance... but you know, I don't trust you because my exwife screwed me over...

    Good to know youíre still a polished turd.

    I edited out the part where I called you a POS. Over the line. No need for that.

    Iím drinking from the chalice of love.


    Itís quite entertaining to watch you make an ass of yourself. Again and again.

    Carry on

    Single moms are rough customers.

    One minute she says sheís focusing on her kids. Next sheís texting me ❤️ about work I did for her. Then sheís asking me to join her and her family (grandma and the kids) for a moonlight paddle.

    If I was a single guy, I am fairly certain I would run from the kids of a single mom. Find a girl that can't breed or kids that are grown up and not your problem except for holidays.

    $$$ isn't everything.

    Splitting up after age 50 — often called “gray divorce” — may be particularly hazardous to your emotional and financial health, far worse than doing so at younger ages. A wave of new research is quantifying the damage.

    “It’s a grim picture,” said Susan Brown, a Bowling Green State University sociology professor and co-director of the National Center for Family & Marriage Research, which has generated many of the new findings. According to one study, people who’ve gone through a gray divorce report higher levels of depression than those whose spouses died.

    The economic effects are even more stark. As more and more baby boomers end marriages, sometimes for the second or third time, they’re wrecking their finances on an unprecedented scale.

    because survival of the species is one of the tenets of being human, the reality is attractive women will have probably procreated, I've been thru 3 sets of step (ish) kids and I would say I got better at it but you might as well be realistic and resign yourself to 2nd class status

    the woman I dated with no kids had a Siberian husky and I probably did the best with the dog

    I often silently thank my ex-wife for kicking me out when i was still young enough to financialy recover

    $$$$ isn't everything but it sure beats the alternative

    That was a big part of my calculus. Iíd just reached break even point financially; little later than I should have. Partially because I got a late start on a career and partially because she would not get a goddamned job. If I can maintain break even for the next few years while supporting her through her series of entry level jobs I should be able to recover in my 40ís. Wait until late 40ís after Iíve started to acquire some wealth? Seems like a no win.
    focus.

    Iíll let that demo here respond in kind.
    my plan is to pack a squaw at 65, maybe. i might be busy, not being nagged.

    by then, it's all quiet.

    Why did you marry someone who wouldn't work? Sounds like a lose/lose scenario.

    it worked for me probably due in some part to an eclectic combo of good luck/good timing/ good drugs and the american cousins shitting the bed with the credit swap crisis

    She was working when we got pregnant. Quit/moved to have the baby. Never went back.

    Being a stay at home mom appealed to her. The irony is she complains that she put all this work into being a stay at home mom and now itís hard to find a good job and now Iím so much further ahead than she is. She acts like Iím the one who did this to her. Zero appreciation that she had that opportunity and I wasnít really too big a dick about it outside of the ďhey, this would be a lot easier if you found a jobĒ prodding every couple months. But, being a ďsupportive husbandĒ for all those years meant telling her she was making a damned impressive contribution to the home that society largely did not recognize, and acting like I meant it. Catch-22....

    Her initial spousal support demand was half my income for the next 10 years.
    focus.

    Sounds like a classic dependapotamus story. Now that she is accustomed to not working she wants half of your net worth, child support and half of your income going ten years into the future.

    ok so do you like go through life sizing up women as if every relationship or marriage is a business decision?
    that's just plain wrong unless you define your life by money

    went out with this chick the other day, she wore the shortest fucking skirt ever, all nite long I'm thinking about how nice it is, and the thing is just creeping up, and she keeps pulling it down
    was I concerned that she's a part time deli clerk at city market or that she is thirty something living with three other chicks in a shit hole condo
    no I'm thinking about the thong under that skirt and how gorgeous she looks

    I sure as heck wasn't thinking about a prenup or what her w2 looked like
    life is too short

    No but she is. Her clock is ticking. She wants out of the condo and she wants a 8-5salary job that doesn't involve weighing out precisely 0.75 lbs of Boar's Head Cracked Pepper Turkey for a mom with an attitude.
