"I work in high tech and it is the same here - at least at the first 2-3 levels in the organization - but when we have to go to customers more often the dress goes up too. I said screw it and wear a sport jacket everyday. A suit is too much I agree…"

"Karen has me right: I absolutely was not telling him to leave his wife! No! She needs him, he's committed to her, and he loves her! I was honoring him for keeping going while feeling "like a single parent of two daughters and a wife.""

Sir replied to Jason Sperling's discussion Wife has Clinical Depression
"I feel for you too. My wife has been blue but not all the way to depressed. *I* have been depressed (before marriage). I know how I got out of it; and how I survived it. Meanwhile, maybe single parent of everyone is the way to go, as an act of love."

"My wife does this...girls are so unstable even when they're our rock. What I mean is they NEED  more reassurance. It's like they need to KNOW often just how you feel, even if you've already spelled it to the moon and back."

Johnny P. replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"What is manly? A man is manly, how can tasks and things be manly if they are things and not men? Is it because manly is an adjective that people would like to apply it to things other than men?"
