"Dear Will, You're right, and of course I did read between the lines of your public comment. I know perfectly who you were referring to. Of course, I'm aware that I will have to take decisions by myself, and when that happens, I have to be…"

Stay strong my friend. I went through a veritable nightmare of a divorce a few years ago, lawyers financially destroyed me, but I didn't lose the most important things in my life, my kids. Life as a single father is difficult. Don't even think about divorce proceedings unless you're very serious. Things may be retrievable at this stage. No marriage is perfect and couples do work things out after worse things than this. Use rational thought and less emotion, difficult to do, but essential in my opinion. I sincerely hope that things work out well for you, John

As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind.  Do you want that to happen?  It's going to be tough enough as it is.  You might consider whether continuing to read words like "It's over" and "She's banging him" is going to be good for you (!).  Just a thought.  (I put this here because I'm not trying to start a fight on that thread, but I still wanted to say this.)

Daniel Rodriguez replied to Daniel's discussion Family in the group Gentlemen Atheists
"Don't attack them for their faith. It does nothing but make them more and more against you. I found that I would have days where I would want nothing more to burn a church down, bash down religion. But it's their life, and you have yours.…"

Family

Since losing the faith I find I have a difficult time maintaining close relationships with my parents and siblings who are strong believers. We don't fight, we all love each other, but there is a barrier that prevents anything too deep from happening. They are still faithfully waiting and expecting a prodigal son to return, so things seem to be a state of arrested development.I'd love to read about anybody's experience/success with bridging this divide in a healthy way, or of what potential…See More

Jacob Bauer replied to John Bravo's discussion I held out sex for love first....Why is it so hard to find a girl who's done the same?
"You're probably looking in the wrong place and at the wrong girls. Ignore these idiots who say you "shouldn't judge" or whatever. You laid our your criteria and you know exactly what you want in a woman. Find her and hope you…"

Jacob Bauer replied to Herb Munson's discussion Trusting in the Faithfulness of God in the group The Great Debate
""Silly" and "rigamarole" are hardly personal insults. Perhaps he does find your position silly. He was still respectful of the people supporting it, as far as I read. I think you're trying to find an excuse to avoid his…"

Rush replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"I agree that Faith without deeds is dead. God helps, but I have to work at it too. I don't think that praying out of money for your own ambitions that do not have God is good. For example I think its good to pray for success in Him through many…"

Nathanael replied to John Bravo's discussion I held out sex for love first....Why is it so hard to find a girl who's done the same?
"Reread what he wrote.  If he was interested in morals or values he'd be asking women about their beliefs and how they behave now, not whether they've ever had casual sex.  This is about his own psychological and sexual hang-ups,…"

"Immoral from a point a view. Morals change. You shouldn't look down on someone because they don't fit your general moral code."
