I need it to be a chart-topper that people will argue about for decades to come. It needs to be the right blend of revolutionary and mainstream or else it won't work.

You have the chance at a clean break, this is something many in a position similar to yours would kill for. Not only don't you have kids, but you'll be in different countries.

A family member came to Korea, she married a Korean guy and she realized after she travelled to South Africa with him, on 2-week holiday and to meet her family, that she'd made a mistake and he'd completely changed. He became so "homesick" that he refused to leave her parents house, where they stayed, and only wanted to eat Korean food, which he asked his mother-in-law to cook for him. The mother-in-law was obsessed with him getting her pregnant (they wanted a son to carry on the family name), he was also pretty much a deadbeat and had no interest in doing anything other than obeying his mom. Luckily, she managed to end things off and leave before that happened.

Not trying to generalize Korean guys, but if he's pressuring for a kid, it could be coming from his mother and what woman wants to marry a man who prioritizes his mother over his wife? Those cultural differences aren't easy to ignore.

Living separately for now is probably the smartest move to make. All the best and hope you can use some 'you time' to relax, find some peace and make the best decision.

Obviously he is pressuring me to reconsider my decision.......it's funny though , for him he would rather work it out living together or go straight for divorce rather than live separately...when in my mind one is definitely worse than the other......but his pressuring for a child stems from 2 main things: pressure from friends and coworkers (not his family....they asked once and never again) and the fact that he is 39 yrs old and doesnt want to be called grandpa by his kids....I kind of understand the second reason but still....I'm not ready and only 32 so I do have some time, though not a lot

Couple of things.

The TDS takedown was way overdue. I forget who wrote it, (I think one nut?) but it was spot on. Perfection.

Birdwatching is dry as a bone. You must not have much going on to be obsessed with it.

Me and Tyler have had our differences, but heís one of the characters who actually has something about them on here, I respect that.

Itís Friday.

That is all.

Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

Many men, including myself, have the same concerns, it's the reality of the world we live in. I try to keep my body in peak condition to maximize the chances of having healthy kids later in life and having the energy to raise them.

....I kind of understand the second reason but still....I'm not ready and only 32 so I do have some time, though not a lot

Once the kid comes along it's no longer about you or him, it's pretty much checkmate. Your reluctance at 32 sounds like your intuition speaking to you. You could always adopt or meet someone later. There's a family of 4 (boy, girl and parents) down the hall from my apartment. Police have been called multiple times in response to their fighting and the kids are going through hell.
No kid deserves to go through that.

If you decide to leave and start fresh, please DON'T go to India to "find yourself".

intuition perhaps, health too though.....high bp and back pain from 2 previous back surgeries........I would love to adopt in the future and have wanted to do so for a very long time

although I love indian food, it would not be a place I have any interest in traveling ...

Anyway thanks for the discussion

students are coming back to school next week. not all, but 1/3 at any one day.

i hate this because i have to do online/offline classes at the same time. it's impossible to teach. and double impossible to do any kind of activity

my school is also changing the timetable back to the "regular" timetable. back to leaving at 3.30pm rather than at 12pm :(

People who try to make anything and everything about their political views. And I mean anything.

Like being a member of an FB group dedicated to sharing pictures and videos of cats, and thinking that it's okay to rant about antifa or "the orange devil in the White House " under the picture of an innocent and extra-floofy ginger tabby.

It's a ****** cat, man, can't we just enjoy the picture of a cat?

Yeah, its gotten a bit too pervasive for my liking. Obviously there are big issues that deserve attention but I can't dedicate 100% of my time to that and occasionally I do just need a break. People that claim they don't are lying.

Just because a thread goes off the original topic, it doesn't mean it should automatically be locked. Doesn't conversation and arguments generally evolve?

I think the idea is someone might get all excited when they see new posts in a thread title and then feel an overwhelming sense of disappointment when they get in and see they're not still talking about the original topic after all.

I assume different mods have different stances on that. I don't think the Kaylee thread deserved to be locked, but oh well.

Yeah, I thought it was a good argument and stayed on topic.  Wasn't getting ugly and I've certainly seen a lot of nasty comments on threads that didn't get locked. It was all staying in the ballpark of the original topic.  No idea why that got locked.  It was a good back and forth.
