You’re absolutely correct, Antonia V.! This IS a very heart-warming moment.^_^
See, guys just have to fix what’s wrong. Gals just want them to be there and listen.
Then guy marries gal, guy has NO choice but to listen and eventually guy blows his brains (what’s left of them) out.
Thats completely untrue.
That’s the best answer by far! Thanks for cnotributing.
Yup. Totally untrue. King Henry VIII brought us the miracle of divorce.
Or he could just not put up with that and not be afraid to point out when she’s being irrational, and both sides could communicate and not just have one side talk at the other without saying anything. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the cause for america’s rediculous divorce rate.
You sound too much like a reasonable person…
I figure you live in the U.S. but are you sure you were raised here? X_x
If people stopped having sex before marriage that would help too.
It is those weirdos that have sex AFTER marriage that really need to be watched.
*applauses Ashvati* If only the rest of the world were that smart.
This introduces a pleansgily rational point of view.

Communication is key. Male and female minds work differently, we all need to spell things out for each other sometimes.
Amen, Ashvati. Amen. Love is not a noun, it is not an object that someone simply has. People seem to think that, and there’s the problem. If it is a thing that someone can have, then it is a thing that someone can misplace and lose and break as well.
Fortunately, love is, in fact, a verb. It is something that must be DONE. You /love/ someone. That means you respect them. You talk to them. You forgive them their faults as they forgive you yours. You grow and change with each other, building off of each other and complimenting each other. That is a long term relationship.
Alex is showing that he loves by respecting her strength and acknowledging how heavy her burden must be, and apologizing that he may have had some part in that burden.
Love is more like a thing that people are subjected to, and being the proverbial wet rags they are, they tend to just go along with it.
Fortunately, love is also one of the easiest emotions to control because it is highly situation-specific. People hype it up not only because it tends to be the key to the biological prerogative (assuming one doesn’t reproduce primarily through forcing the issue), but because as emotions go it is relatively rare. And it is relatively rare NOT because it doesn’t arise a lot (it does) but because it crumbles to dust in a light breeze.
So naturally, love is pretty easy to control.
Most people don’t know this, don’t want to know this, don’t want to try. They prefer to live under the delusion that love is some magical, special, powerful emotion… and so they tend to cling to it obsessively.
But life really is a whole lot more convenient when you can switch the love on and off at will… and all you really need to do is just decide to do so… and mean it.
Alex: “Just tell me what to do and I’ll do it.”
Nastajia: “Really? Okay, bungee-jump off the tower.”
Alex: “…let me find the cord.”
“Just tell me what to do and I’ll do it. Not only that, we’ll do it together. In bed.”
A great page from Scott, Alex finally engaging his brain and his heart, and insightful comments from Ashvati, Kat, Twigs, and Turnip the Scintillating… The only way this page would be better is if we had free auto insurance quotes. Oh, hey, look at that – thank you Geralynn! -_-
