Sounds like most posting here have already done the married and children thing. Anyone reading without kids wondering if they made the right decisions along the way?
I try to embrace a philosophy in life where I'd much rather regret trying something than not. There is one big exception to this, children. I have known for as long as I can remember that children weren't for me, and at the age of 43 I certainly have no regrets re children. Thankfully I am happily married to a like minded woman.

As far as wealth imbalance goes, I came to this relationship with far less than my wife. In the early years I was very reluctant to enjoy the benefits of money that I didn't earn, but after 2-3 years she made it very clear to me that by not letting her bring her resources to our collective effort that she wasn't enjoying the lifestyle that she wanted. Theres no pre nups or legal hoo ha between us, just trust. She reckons the fact that I was making far more effort to protect her interests than she was, was all the protection that she needed.

And these are the main things that you need to make it work

Hang on a minute

You're talking about having to feed yourself three times a day, do your own washing an ironing, going to the supermarket, paying all your bills, opening all the mail, cleaning the shower, bugger that.

I believe it's all a question of commitment, or at least a big part of it is. When I got married I was 29 and had decided that I wanted to spend my life with a partner. I took my vows and that's it.
Alright, our relationship has changed over the years and I am NOT in love, not the same kind of love anyway, as I was 25 years ago.
But I also do not want to start over again or quit what we have worked hard for to achieve.
I believe only very few people are made to be able to live life on their own.
I one chooses to do so embrace it, or make the commitment to the person of your choosing and start the hard work and compromises that it really is.

DR, that's certainly wrong IMO. Whilst we are social animals, psychologically tuned to live together, we're completely ABLE to live alone.

My village life means I'm never alone unless I choose to be. When first I moved here three plus years ago I was down the club discussing living alone with a few friends. A lovely lady reached over and rubbed my leg and said "Pete, you never need to be alone in Greenwell Point"

Mutual spite and stubbornness. Neither of you is willing to leave and let the other one be happy, neither of you is willing to go backwards financially with a split! At least thats the running joke between my wife and I.

Back on topic;

I did that for you Al. She just waved back.

Apparently it's rude to talk with your mouth full and she had her dentures out...
