I am not sure if this has been discussed in this forum. It is a rather difficult topic for me to bring up because in my pursuit to become a better man, I feel I need to somehow deal with this in a…Continue
"I wonder if you didn't have an idea that she was 'experienced' prior to your marriage. Is it the exact number of partners that bothers you the most? 10, 20 or 25, how were things between you before you heard the magic…"
"Alright there David,
If you led a similar path before to your wife then I doubt it would be an issue for that you couldn't come to terms with.
I made a pact with myself what to me is acceptable in a fiancee' history…"
"David---this topic comes up now and again, and I'm going to tell you what I honestly believe, even though it might not be popular in our current cultural climate. Sex is like fire--contained within its proper boundaries, it's…"
"Yeah, so far as I know, Mexicans are rather Catholic and lean conservative, but I've seen the occasional Mexican hipster girl. If anything redeems the forlorn species of hipsters, that kind of girl will. But I digress. Your kids are going to be…"
"Shane, I opposed conservative to promiscuous, which is clever, if obvious. -- Everyone is a liberal in the picture. But when sex and drama start, liberalism disappears: it is useless. Shame is the word you are looking for when you talk of chastity…"
"I hope it's a good prize.
My girlfriend's family is Mexican, so no surprises there as far as religious affiliation goes. No moralizing other than some occasional mumbo-jumbo about how lonely and sad a world without God…"
"Conservatism is not used here in the political sense, but rather the vanilla flavored ice cream sense, do we need mint chocolate chip to live a flavor filled life? Nope. But, I like it.

"I agree, the man turned coward. But I do not agree that his conservatism was a problem, because I do not agree that her promiscuity was a good thing.
Had she been a happy woman, then Holden might have felt like her love or company or example would…"
"I agree, there is no character arch. But then, such is life. Which makes for poor story, but powerful example. We either learn, or not, from our experiences. Yet it is our experiences which make us who we are. Even if…"
"X2 is the older model. Was a bit larger. X26 benefitted from miniaturization. Same five second ride.
Fair point. I'm just wary of reports which state the impossible. Most people don't know how a TASER works. It's very much not like…"
"Move out. I know you didn't mention it but I'd bet you live together. It messes with you. You are in no position to decide your future with this woman while you live under the same roof.
That weird calm you felt after ending it was…"
"Yes, Vendetta, strong advice, as you say, and hard to swallow. But if you've read the whole OP -- isn't it completely accurate?
The problem is the "hard to swallow" part. If I were OP and read it, I'd be looking…"
"There is also an X2, whose shot duration specs I cannot find.
Ant any rate, I agree - my main contention is that you're basing your objection on the NY Times summary, not what the report actually says... we don't know what it actually…"
