I'm *staying* married!
I am married.
I have been married for over 16 years. I am looking forward to the next 16 with great antici
My wife and I have recently been through some *extremely* difficult events. Our marriage was in dire peril. Things were said, papers were filed, people had moved... It represented the very darkest time in my life. There are threads and posts here that stand in testament to the grief and confusion and pain I experienced. Tips of icebergs hinting at the enormous cold menace below the surface of the impenetrably black freezing waters. And my wife's icebergs, just as heavy and just as dangerous, never even showed up here.
Now I have the great pleasure and good fortune to announce that we have traveled to safer, sunnier, warmer waters! We have steered the marital barque away from the shoals of divorce (and destruction and damnation) out to the open waters of domestic felicity. Well, we're not there yet, but we're headed in that direction. Thank god.
There is good honest work ahead of us, work I'm looking forward to. And some learning, and some rules. One rule for me is no more flirting. Sorry ladies, I'm taken. Very happily so. Besotted would be appropriate. So your pictures have been burned, your letters have been shredded, and that other... thing ... has been put in the giveaway box (just kidding honey! ). Not that I don't appreciate the thought, but no thanks. I have all the woman I can handle, and she has no competition, here or anywhere.
We'll be working on *us* together, and I can't imagine a better pairing. She is beautiful, smart, and strong. She loves our children completely, and defends them fiercely against all comers. She is funny and talented and sexy as hell.
In fact, I have another happy news item, she's gonna start showing up here. Here amongst my friends, plunging courageously into the thick of the very environment that bothers her. She hasn't begun posting yet, but she did agree to let me post a nice picture of her and SonofV in their Halloween finest.
I'm happy! She's happy ("I feel like a newlywed!") SonofV is happy. Please, all my friends, share in our happiness.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. -- Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)
