[ - ] Thank you for the transgender freak out post. Every time you guys post your bigotry and hysteria over "what about the children" it just identifies you as small minded flyovers. NO ONE in a major metropolitan city is batting an eye over Bruce Jenner. There have always been drag queens and transgender people in NY, SF, Chicago etc and shockingly our children are fine. And there have always been transgender people all over the US. There is no agenda and the media isn't shoving a lifestyle down your throat. My apologizes to all the non-bigoted people in the flyover that I lumped in this post. I know you exist and are the majority. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm in NYC and I find him and his 'transition' revolting. I saw a guy in drag at Staples the other day. Same thing, I'd really rather not see that shit. Now, I think they have the right to parade themselves around as it feels best to them. All kinds of cultures have recognized that some are born 'other' for centuries. They never tried to normalize it though. It's not normal. It's marginal. Let's not pretend that it is. [ Reply | More ]

I hear a lot here that it is a waste of time to look for a DH in this pool, because most men ultimately do not leave their wives, but obviously second marriages to younger wives happen all the time. They seem very common especially with men who are very successful. My question, how do you sense which men are better good bets for someone who would be interested in a next marriage vs. men who just want to waste time and get some sex out of you? BTW I am not in such a relationship, so do not yell at me about being an OW, I am not. But Unlike many girls my age, I would not be averse to eventually marrying someone who had previous wives.

Men usually don't divorce without having the next one lined up. Mistresses *sometimes* steal these men away but the vast majority of the time they are just what we married folk call a long term coping strategy (keeps you sane, helps you stay). So, I don't see why you'd be hanging around married guys, hoping someone will divorce - sick! - but the fact is almost 50% of people divorce, less among the UMC targets your are seeking.

Wrong on divorce rate - it is ~9% among the affluent and educated. Divorce rates are enormous amongst the poor and uneducated, which highly skews the median overall. [ Reply | More ]

The difference between 9% and 50% is significantly more than 'less' would imply. If you had written significantly less, I wouldn't have provided the data point for illustration. [ Reply | More ]

Men whose money is on their side are a better bet. Men whose wives look older than they are. Men who spend all their time at work, whose wives are SAHM, this means their wives do everything without him and it is an easier departure. Look for ones whose kids are older. Make sure they know you never want to SAHM, they already have one of these and don't need another one. Be hotter than they could get without their money. Never get upset or cry or get angry.

Marriages of two educated high earning partners are quite stable. Hardly anyone in my town is divorced. [ Reply | More ]

Must not have many SAHMs then. Marriages with a SAHP have divorce rates 14% higher than the national average, and will only keep going up now that long-term alimony is a thing of the past. [ Reply | More ]

Sounds like your kids aren't middle-school aged yet. Better spend that money now, before future wife #2 graduates college! [ Reply | More ]

No, only 4th grade. But, of course, my neighbors have middle schoolers. I have my own money, so no worries. [ Reply | More ]

They will start complaining about ex(s) about 30 seconds into the first conversation. Chances of marriage if you're the first or second GF post-divorce - very low. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, the first relationship after divorce is just a constant litany of 'my ex' and 'when I was married' stories. [ Reply | More ]

Even if he were to leave his wife and marry you, be prepared for a difficult life. Part of his money will go to his ex and his kids. His kids will hate you, possibly his family too. Most of his business associates will not welcome you socially. He will not want to go clubbing. You will not live the life his first wife lived. She may get child support, a house and alimony. She may end up being a SAHM to school age kids, while you have to work full time with your kids in day care. All of this and more happened to my sister (although she maintains she was not the other woman). It is a tough life. His older kids will get college paid for, and imho, unlikely he will be working when their kids go to college. [ Reply | More ]

I've heard of scenarios on UB where the second wife has to supplement the child support alimony with her own income. Sounds kind of insane. [ Reply | More ]

Technically, she does not "have to." The second wife does not have a legal obligation. I do not think in NY, the husband would be ordered to pay more than his income (unless he is arrearage), BUT he may left with a very low income. [ Reply | More ]

No, I am the much younger spouse in this case. I can assure you, we didn't meet until a few years after the divorce. Same is true for the handful of other women I know in this situation. [ Reply | More ]

As an adult, I've only had a fever twice -- both from more serious illnesses (Lyme & mono). I don't know the medical reason, but it seems kids get fevers more easily. [ Reply | More ]
