I am married nearly 25 years and I pretty much agree with most of the rules. Men's and women's minds work really differently when it comes to romantic relationships and choosing a partner to marry. It's game playing but hey - that's what romance can be. [ Reply | More ]

both authors of the rules are divorced now, no? I didn't follow their all rules and I've been married 13 years pretty happily. many of the rules are common sense stuff and the rest are just the authors' person quirks it seems to me. I think the biggest help in getting married quickly is simply choosing a man who is on the same page as you marriage-family-wise. the emotional manipulation tricks they propose don't work if the guy is just not ready to commit, no matter how conniving and crafty you are or how diligently you apply the rules. sorry.

No offense but at some point your son will be "scarred for life" by something. And if it's a dead deer then he's got a lot more shock and awe ahead of him. It's one good thing about having a house in the country where you can have a lot of critters in the backyard like rabbits or gerbils or mice or extra cats. Kids learn the circle of life all year round. [ Reply | More ]

No. I view camping and hunting as related. At least out west. I also think it is more ethical to eat an animal that you were willing to kill and that had a good life in the wild than one locked up in a small enclosure, pumped with hormones and other bade stuff to grow fast, put on a miserable truck ride where it might bark its legs before being killed at the slaughter house.

OR again--sounds like bs to me. there are cases of ds that go undetected by the triple screen or ultrasound checks for markers. amnio and cvs are extremely accurate for ds. i'm sure there are cases of lab errors or mosaic ds, but those would be so, so rare and unlikely [ Reply | More ]

What does mosaic ds mean? One of the posters was saying that the tests doesn't work with fraternal twins (because of the two DNA I'm assuming?) [ Reply | More ]

Mosaic ds is when some cells in the body have the extra chromosome, but not all. the mutation happened later in development. so if the test doesn't catch the right cells, it can go undetected. it's very rare. [ Reply | More ]

I know you can do amnio for both fraternal twins, since they each have their own amniotic sac. I don't know why this would be less accurate. [ Reply | More ]

I think a lot of people underestimate the sacrifices you have to be willing to make and how children change your life in overall (in good and not so good ways). I can see someone in a bad day "regretting it" (specially when the child is acting as a pita) but still adore their kids, It also adds a lot of stress to the marriage/relationship, specially if the child related duties are not equal (Mom doing more than Dad). -I am child free btw!

Well you can get married and don't have kids, fun doesn't revolve around clubbing, I travel with my husband, go out to eat, go to the movies, go to museums, I take classes, and we are retiring early (we are early 30's). People shouldn't have kids because everyone their age is having kids. You can do other things with your life besides raising children, imo. [ Reply | More ]

anyone who says they don't regret having kids is lying. ultimately, you trade a part of yourself, a part of the connection you had with your partner for having a kid. when things get tough, you reminisce, you regret no longer having that past life a little but then you come back and realize that your kids bring a new dimension of joy into your life. can't have it all.

I guess its just that the whole argument seemed to start with the presumption that the jewish people need their own country. Now I know it has progressed beyond that, to the point where history means the Palestinian muslims and the Israeli Jews could never live in harmony in the same country, because some things can never be un-done, but people are still arguing that it is because the jews need their own country, rather than the Israeli's needing their own country, albeit that it will be predominantly Jewish.
