    A little headache. Don't want to sleep. A little blue:confused:
    How about you now?

    Do you think marriage is one of the most hard thing in the world?

    I am good, at least not blue. But I did not get much last night my self. Played a game of squash yesterday. And and in the middle of the night my right big toe started to get real painful. Sure more painful than giving birth I think :pIt is better now. But I have limped around all day

    I've never tried marriage, it's quite popular though, and some people like it so much they get married two or three times. :)
    I start a new job tomorrow (nothing to do with electronics), that's quite stressful.

    I 'm getting the taxi-driver's tan: A tanned left forearm.
    By driving to the uni back and forth.

    As far as marriage is concerned, I have no clue. My folks seem to lose the myth by the day, but habit and understanding creep in in its place.

    The last time I was in Japan (in the 1990's) that was a status symbol for the well to do. Can you guess why?

    Not really. I can't imagine taxi drivers being a high class.

    Japaness businessmen sometimes cultivated a tan left arm in order to leave the impression they had a western (American, not English) automobile. Some really had the car, but some only had the tan.

    Would it not be more upper class to have a car with climate control?

    Oh, they had climate control, but the status came from driving an American car in Japan, so they wanted their friends to be reminded they had one even when they were out of the car, especially on the golf course.

    Sorry if I am slow. But why in first place would it be expected to drive a USA made car in japan with windows down. Even if it had climate control:confused:

    Marriage is an association as many around there.

    In my opinion, and according to personal experience it tends to fail not because of what went wrong but actually because of the wrong expectations of one (or both) partners.

    Always according to my personal experience, one of the most frequent errors (and honestly, I believe more frequent from ladies) is to expect the guy to change to fit an image they have in mind of how he should be.

    From all partnerships I know is probably the best to learn how to please (or DESTROY) the other part.

    Being honest before marriage could avoid MANY and help in happy success of those that go ahead anyway. Methinks

    I agree. Most marriages fail because of Walt Disney. Prince Charming doesn't exist and the women not only can't figure that out, they won't tell their husband that they wish he was more like Prince Charming. We work ourselves into an early grave and never know what we're doing wrong. The older, wiser, women can be heard in many places, having a cup of tea and complaining about the years they wasted waiting for a man to read their mind, then change into the right person.

    Personally, I quit disappointing women 15 years ago. I enjoy picturing them as self fulfilled and self empowered people with a job, a mortgage, and a car payment, coming home each night to a house full of people that have been waiting all day to say how dissatisfied they are.

    That's why I'm remarrying the wife I got divorced from 35 years ago. Grass isn't greener on the other side, found out too late.
