“I have zero problem understanding. It's your descriptions that are painfully cliché - so superficial and juvenile that I genuinely thought you were kidding? No?”

Joni Geller on Dec 5, 2013 at 15:31:08

“No superficiality here ... sometimes love is merely that simple.

Now, for others love might be more complex.

Allow me to share just a few things that makes my sweetheart so special. We write little love notes and leave them in places for each other to find. He calls me everyday from work just to tell me he loves me. And, every time he is leaving work he will call to ask me if I need anything, and to tell me he loves me.

When we were in college a couple of my gal pals were drinking coffee with us. They were commenting on a guy they were attracted to, and both of them said the main reason they liked him was because he was a "bad boy." One gal quickly looked at my husband to be and said, "Sorry, but you're one of the nice ones."

I chimed in with a quick reply, "Yes boy toys can be fun until you need them to hold your hand when life goes south."

I'm very fortunate to have married a "nice guy." Three weeks ago I lost both br easts, and guess where my best friend was? Right by my side holding my hand.”

“So, to sum up, clichés define your marriage?”

“If you don't have this type of relationship, you wouldn't understand. Sounds corny and cliche but sometimes, it really happens that way.”

Joni Geller on Dec 5, 2013 at 07:22:13

“Love, deep affection, loyalty and respect - no "cliches" - simply devotion.

Perhaps hard to understand for someone who has not experienced "Marital Happiness." Not to mean you personally.”

“Wow, I stand corrected. That's just horrible. But, for what it's worth, in California, the age of consent is 18, so completely illegal for Paul Walker to date a 16 year old when he's 33. Furthermore, most states that have a 16-year-old age of consent also have laws that say something like "as long as the partner is not more than 4 years older" than the 16 year old etc...”

DonnieReillyMMA on Dec 4, 2013 at 03:28:02

“No, you're thinking of "Romeo and Juliet" laws where the age of consent is over 16. In many states the straight up age of consent for sexual stuff with anyone of your choosing is 16 - hell, in some states it's 14! 16 as an age of consent is quite widely considered to be perfectly reasonable in many countries around the world, such as the UK. If you think it's "just horrible" for 16 year olds to be making their own sexual health decisions that's one thing, but you need to get with the program...not everyone bleeds ice like you folks in Alaska (I'm not even sure what that means lol)”

“My mother is a kindergarten teacher. She taught 2nd grade for a decade, too. She was an extraordinary parent and taught us proper etiquette, good behavior, and manners at home. Restaurants for adults are not needed to teach kids these things, and my parents didn't "tuck us away" by any means. They enjoyed their date nights without us kids just as much as we enjoyed staying home and playing with a babysitter/aunt/uncle or having a sleepover with family/friends.

Parents need time alone to keep their relationship strong and healthy, and eating dinner in a nice restaurant while spending the whole time parenting/teaching/disciplining kids is not part of a romantic evening with your spouse. That's what I find sad -- parents who can't leave their kids at home occasionally to focus on each other.”

Carolyn Forte on Dec 4, 2013 at 10:34:14

“How do you know that parents don't do that also? Whats your definition of a " restaurant for adults"?”

“That's why my parents never (no, not even once) brought us kids to restaurants. On special occasions, we went to McDonald's. My parents believed in being considerate and respecting others. Allowing other adults to enjoy a nice dinner out (in peace) was part of that. Are you one of those people who brings kids everywhere because you want to go but don't want to use a babysitter? I think that's selfish and unfair - to other adults, and worse, to the kids.”

Carolyn Forte on Dec 3, 2013 at 18:38:54

“How sad that your parents did take you to restaurants. Children are not be tucked away until some adult feel its ok to bring them out.

What happen to teaching children to behave and enjoy dinner at a restaurant?”

“The chin is crucial to the development of language because the muscles in the chin control small movements in our lips. Apes and other primates have a "simian shelf" that reinforces their jaw, but it impedes the tongue restricting speech. Apes have gigantic jaws for eating and fighting, but they can't recite tongue twisters.”

“I used to buy into the logic that if Dems changed the filibuster now, it would hurt them once they were not in the majority any longer. Until ... two very important things occurred to me.

1) Dems will lose the majority because they can't govern now due to the Republicans' abuse of the filibuster.

2) Once the Dems lose the majority, there's nothing stopping the Republicans from removing the filibuster themselves. They will do it!

If the last five years have taught us anything, the Republicans will do anything to obstruct the Dems - gleefully!”
