“5" girth?”

“Don't feel bad. I initially thought the same thing at first.

My brain attempted to visualize what 7 inches long and 5 inches wide looked like. And then I remembered how girth was measured.”

“OK, so I've never worked a credit card machine to know that, thanks for setting me straight... although I still feel inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt.  I seriously question the idea that she did this for attention or money, although I could be wrong.  Could she have predicted that people would be so generous? Maybe... but she didn't come off like an opportunist to me and it seems like a long way to go to get a few bucks with a story that could be verified as false so easily.  It just doesn't fit that she would be so vocal knowing that the customers could come forward to refute it. And to invoke her military service in the discussion, the experience must've impacted her greatly. ”

“Is it not possible that someone besides the customers wrote the note... possibly a co-worker/employer? How do you end up with the merchant copy not having the tip written in (which is what the business uses to get paid), but have the credit card statement showing a different amount? Liquid Paper, Photoshop... the waitress may not be the culprit, but there seem to be way too many linear thinkers here thinking that there are only two answers... fraud by the waitress or lying by the customers. I say there are many more possibilities and I'd put my money on a third party.”

“The waitress would have given the bill to the customers and picked it up from them for processing with Visa. (You know, it's really easy to print out duplicate copies of the same bill.) It's possible that after her customers left, another worker came by her table, removed the original receipt, replaced it with the bogus one, processed the credit card for the correct amount (tip included) and left her thinking she had been stiffed by evil, hateful, judgemental people....all without being seen or noticed by anyone. But it's much more likely that she did it herself. You have to look and who benefited from the scam.

I like to think the best of everyone, but if,in fact, the waitress was the one who did this, then she did a HUGE disservice to anyone who is truly treated badly.”

“The song is great, I wish someone with some talent and common sense had a chance to perform it... it's wasted on her and her silly antics. Just because people are talking doesn't mean it translates into cash. She does this awesome song a great disservice and that is the real shame... she took a beautiful song and dragged into the dirt, along with her dignity. Since when did people start thinking that being practically naked on stage in front of your peers while wagging your tongue outside your mouth translated into people thinking that you're a grown person?

“Like sex, what happens when one partner decides that they just aren't into it anymore or that they just don't like it... but the other partner doesn't feel ready to give it up? Is the other partner relegated to a sexless or kiss-less life, in this case, because of the vows? What does the jilted partner do given the other partners lack of motivation ? Serious question...”

AprilFoolsRebel on Nov 18, 2013 at 10:25:02

“To be clear; I'm not judging someone for wanting - no, NEEDING - intimacy. But to do so behind the other person's back... well, that I do have an issue with.

To me, part of intimacy is being able to communicate that need to my partner, to discuss the problems, to find a solution together.

Not giving the other person the option of voicing their own issues or showing them the basic respect that comes with those vows is a different animal. After all, there are two people involved in the marriage... and perhaps the other person has need or desires of their own that aren't being met.

Again, my take on it only. I don't pretend to have all the answers.”

Obviously, there are enough judges remaining, so I don't think I will be missed.”

“I agree that it would be great if everyone who has ever strayed have the balls to own up, but when you consider that you will probably devastate the one you love and that they will probably want to leave you, coming clean looks less and less attractive. You can bet that there are signs in relationships where one is considering straying or already has, but they may not be completely obvious, but they're there. You have to want to work at making a good relationship and find ways to come together more often than not... too many people seem to take their relationships for granted and not put the effort in... and those are the folks who are "surprised" when they find out that they've got a partner whose strayed. If they were paying attention, it would be obvious, which is why people need to learn to turn off Facebook, put the phones and tablets down and find ways to get closer to their spouses... you might learn something after spending a few hours chatting with your partner... I used to think to myself that I wish I was my wife's work phone, because at least then she'd be touching and talking to me more often"...”

“I don't mean to be making the case that cheating can never be justified. Although I would think that cases in which it is would justify something else, like separation or divorce, first.

My point from the beginning is that when people do bad things and blame technology for them those claims should not be taken seriously. That is particularly true in the case of something like cheating which usually requires deception.

You are right that in cases of a single indiscretion it may be better to lie about it. That is part of why I added the obligation to do something to make sure it doesn't happen again. I do not mean to be taking specifically about your case, which I know nothing specific about.”

“The OP couldn't be more spot on! It's not about being fulfilled 24 hours a day. When the feelings are no longer mutual, usually precipitated by the withdrawal of the woman from her active role in making her husband feel like a man, outside influences are amplified... it becomes a situation where men try to get that admiration and ego stroke where ever they can, and there are plenty of women waiting in the wings to give it to them. Make your man feel like a man, then feed him and sex him before he leaves the house if you don't want to have him running the streets looking for it elsewhere. It's actually really simple, but a WOMAN'S PRIDE is a stubborn thing, and it's what keeps them from being better partners to men. Not that men don't bear the major portion of responsibility in this, I'm just saying that it's preventable with a little effort.”

“A few days ago, I might've agreed with you on this point. But the missing sex is only a symptom of what's really wrong in the relationship. I read an article that expressed what's probably missing besides the sex that's even more important. Here's what it said on marriageinspiration's site:

Honor/Respect - take him and the information he brings seriously, he'll feel more needed

Sexual Fulfillment - your husband NEEDS real good love making and he NEEDS it often.

Recreational Companionship - A wife who enjoys doing some of the things he likes

Attractive Spouse - you will make him look good if you look good.

Domestic Support - a place where he can escape from the fray of the world and won’t be attacked and bombarded the moment he walks in the door.

Admiration - a feeling of delighted or astonished approval, the process of regarding highly.

Some of those things by themselves are even better than sex.... welllll....on second thought....”

“There are plenty of honest people who have strayed at some point in their lives... making mistakes doesn't make you dishonest or a "cheater"... it makes you human.”

Lon on Nov 13, 2013 at 15:41:28

“True, there are many kinds of mistakes one can make, and not everybody who makes a mistake is dishonest or a cheater. In fact, everybody makes mistakes and not everybody is dishonest or a cheater.

On the other hand if the mistake one makes is that one has cheated on one's spouse one is a cheater. That is pretty much what the word means. And while there may be some who stray honestly, I guess that would mean people who stray, acknowledge to their spouse that they strayed and take positive steps to make sure that it doesn't happen again, they don't seem to be the majority of people who stray.”

“So, you've never made a mistake in your life? Way to go, Jesus! I bet if you laid bare all of your mistakes, straying (or "cheating" in your words) would seem like a relatively minor issue... people make mistakes for all kinds of reasons and your harsh judgement doesn't lend itself to finding resolution. If someone "cheats", they sound like a bad person with no self control. If someone "strays", as people do, they are usually trying to fill a void left by the main relationship and it's both spouses responsibility to accept their roles in the making and repairing of that relationship if the parties are mature enough... it's not possible for everyone, because for some people it's too difficult to accept that they may have had a part in the demise of the relationship. It sounds a lot better to simply blame the "cheater" and absolve themselves of any responsibility when the reality is that, in a lot of cases, they were just as responsible.”

earthling1st on Nov 13, 2013 at 15:22:32

“uuhhmm, sheesh sensitive much? I did not judge anyone. The article was about how cheating is on the rise because of the use of facebook. That facebook excuse is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Someone who cheats will cheat regardless of the "facebook clause". It's a convenient excuse - thats all. Bottom line is a cheater is unhappy in their relationship and owes it to themselves and their partner to be honest about what it really going on. And as far as making mistakes - oh yes I have made my fair share and it is because I have learned from my mistakes and take full ownership of my actions that I can say definitively that and excuse is an excuse. Before you even take one step into a bad choice - cheating or whatever, you already know what you are doing is going to land you in hot water. But if you want to get all sensitive and excuse away your actions, just realize that you are only compounding the real problem (inability to recognize and communicate what you are feeling) and are revealing more about yourself than I'm sure you would like to. The only thing I blame the cheater for is not being honest with themselves. If your honest with yourself about what you want from the get, then maybe you would never find yourself in a "cheating" position. And please don't get it twisted - everyone has an issue with being honest with themselves.”

“Seems that many of you have missed the point... it's not that it wouldn't happen at all, it's that the access technology provides is making it more prevalent. If the access wasn't there or the concealment wasn't there, or better yet, if the inhibition being removed wasn't there, it's probably more likely that the straying would not happen. Straying doesn't define a person, just as any other mistake doesn't necessarily define that person... I know really good people that have found themselves in this circumstance, and it shouldn't be a death sentence to a marriage because when you look at those relationships deeper, I believe you will find that most strayers don't stray just to pass the time, they do because they are trying to fill a void, a void left by that persons spouse/mate. There's usually more to the story than just the strayer being a mean person who doesn't give a damn about anyone else. A lot of times the strayer is unfulfilled and acting out negatively toward the main relationship. There are usually TWO responsible parties when a partner strays (I think the word "cheating" is an unfair characterization of the people who have mistakenly strayed) and the sooner that is realized, the sooner something can be done to fix those issues.

Here's what I found to be spot on in terms of what a man needs to feel fulfilled:

Honor/Respect
Sexual Fulfillment
Recreational Companionship
Attractive Spouse
Domestic Support
Admiration”

“I guess I don't understand what you think that you're accomplishing by taking that stance. No one is forcing anything on you... are hetero couples forcing their belief on gay couples... should gay couples feel put upon in the presence of hetero couples? So in your world, it's not permissible to display your commitment to your life partner in public? That sounds silly. Do you feel the same way about interracial couples? Where's the line? How do apply this logic to other things? It is out-dated because the reality is that you are probably just as likely to see a gay couple as you are to see a interracial couple, and if you don't have the guts to help your children understand what might be confusing at first, then you probably shouldn't be a parent. I honestly feel that you would be causing more damage to your kids than giving the the ability to understand what they will see. When hetero couples learn to keep their relationships behind closed doors, you might have a chance at convincing gay couples to do the same... naw, probably not even then because love is love and you do NOT have control over who you fall in love with... I'm afraid you might have some personal growth left to accomplish... why should they have to change who they are to satisfy your inability to handle two people in love in a public space? I think that's just silly.”

“Get off the high horse. Let me say again -- I am taking no position on gay rights. I am talking about children. Specifically, little children -- under 7 being questioned on adult situations. You seem to be so stuck on gay rights that you fell to understand anything else. It would be no different if the subject was inter-racial marriage, abortion, legalizing drugs or prostitution. It is the adult nature of the matter that children are being forced to face before they have developed an understanding of anything in life. Let a 5 yr old be concerned about reading, writing, playing, unicorns and anything else they want to be important. The adult stuff comes fast enough. And again, it has nothing to do with being gay or not. Your failure to understand that is what I find silly..”

“They weren't looking at gay porn, they were observing same sex marriage proposals. What's so bad about seeing two people committing to each other based on their love for each other. Divorce is far more vile and destructive to kids and family than gay people wanting to get married. I understand that your heart is in the right place and that you care, but I think that you ideals are a bit outdated. Having had religion forced on me at birth, I promised that I would never do that to my children. I also promised myself that, as the parent, the best I could do is give my kids as much information I can to help them process what they see and allow the to draw their own conclusions about the world around them. I couldn't imagine forcing my perception of this world on them, probably damaging them in ways I couldn't imagine. Information is key and kids are pretty intuitive, so let's not treat them like they aren't. They'll all end up like the little boy who didn't have any idea why he thought being gay was wrong, but was sure it was wrong. His parents didn't teach him anything, they programmed in a response.”

“Someone replied in this thread about, "a 5 yr. old asking how are babies made." Not where do they come from. I'd be pretty interested to see how that could flow into gay marriage. And, that was my issue. Everything does not have to be shared with a 5 yr. old. My ideas are not outdated. I don't have an issue with someone being gay or not. I have more of a problem with it being forced on the public. It is not my business who you are with behind closed doors. I'd prefer to keep it that way. Especially, when it comes to the children.”
