What I often wonder is how can someone with whom I have so little in common, who I think is incredibly immature and self-centred have raised the person I am choosing as my life partner and who I love? How is that possible?
You saved me a lot of typing there.

I think it may be because there is so much intimacy and love that surrounds these two women but doesn't bind them together, you know? Plus, I think men become complacent when they are single and then wives step in a bit but they are still going along to get along and then BAM, there's a kid and soul searching and you start to realize that yeah, you've got opinions on this stuff and furthermore you deserve respect. Respect that is never forthcoming enough from that evil, evil woman your mother in law.
