The last 19 years for me have been the best I could hope for. Have a wife that is way out of my league. I'm sure you'll agree with that. As I'll agree that marie is WAY too good for you.
I'm sure the single life for you has been great but you're 50 now buddy.
Time to fish or cut bait and if you're not going to fish, then just be satisfied with being a Master Baiter.
Uh-oh!!! Sounds like you're backtracking now. That might be what you think but that is not what you pervay to others sometimes. I listen to you all the time tell these young guys that are kicking your butt on the course to wait until they are married with kids. What I percieve you to be saying is that marriage (at least in your experience) is the death of all personal ambition or personal individuality.
To me that doesn't inspire anyone. Congrats on 19 years but don't try and cram your "people must be married" morallity. If God wants to say something to me there are better people than you he can use to voice his wisdom to me.
Lil'Moose is a great woman and yes like you I have had to say "I'm sorry" many times in our relationship but probably not as many times (19 years) as you have had to.
Perhaps I'm just depressed because Lil'Moose and I used to see you and Julie out together. Now we just see you.
