Doesn't anyone else feel for the guy who just wants a little freaking privacy while he takes a piss? And this hurts his girlfriend's feelings? She's a complete nutjob.

That was my reaction, too. That doesn't happen to be my boundary -- my husband and I sometimes walk in on each other peeing, and it's not a big deal -- but it seems like a perfectly reasonable boundary to have, and partners should respect that sort of thing.

High on gun murders and low on gun deaths? Does that mean that laws can keep kids from accidentally killing themselves, but don't prevent criminals from obtaining guns? Surprising juxtaposition, whatever it means.

@8, You asked:
"Speaking of Ignorant Religious Bigotry and Hatred, Danny; you recently said Mormons need to "...admit that their prophet got the gay thing wrong just like he got the black thing wrong and the polygamy thing wrong."
what prophet are you referring to?
and what 'black thing'?
and was doing polygamy wrong or was stopping polygamy wrong?"

The prophet was Joseph Smith. The "black thing" that he got wrong was the ruling that black men cannot hold the priesthood. The Mormon church has officially changed its stance on this, so I guess they think they got it wrong, too. The "polygamy thing" was the commandment for men to marry lots of women, which the Mormon church miraculously decided to change in time for Utah to apply for statehood. It surprises me that Dan thinks this one was wrong, but apparently modern Mormons hold that belief.

None of these references is at all obscure, and I wonder why you repeatedly ask these questions, and what point you think you are making.

@102, The Mormons haven't been persecuted in a while, but they were driven out of a few states at gun point, way back when. Not that that excuses the church from its positions today, but janjospan's claim isn't completely crazy.

Fun letters. Thanks, Dan.

I'm with #3. That has to be on purpose.

I agree with Fishface @19. While I suppose it is unlikely this is EFFED's husband, it certainly sounds like a household with exactly the same sexual dynamic.

Heartbroken, Try couples counseling for a few sessions. Not because it will help you get back together -- like Dan, I can't imagine being able to trust someone after all that, that is WAY worse than a simple sexual peccadillo -- but because good couples therapists help lots of couples through divorce, and may help you negotiate a suitable post-divorce relationship. You have kids, so you probably can't just walk away from him forever. You two may share child care, or child support, and will probably have to be in the same room for important events in your kids' lives, like graduation and marriage. I know a few couples who have used a "divorce therapist" this way, and most have found it helpful.

Also, get a good lawyer.

Best wishes.
May 29, 2013 mother of two commented on SL Letter of the Day: Seconded.
I have a friend whose husband left her for a woman he had only met on-line. (Playing WOW, not SL.) I think there's a huge difference between sex in Second Life and porn. SL is more like phone sex. As others have said, there's a real person on the other end. (Although possibly another man-pretending-to-be-a-woman.)

I don't know that I'd call it adultery, but I think this guy is violating his wife's trust. And not like "sneaking to view porn" or "fantasizing about other woman", which I agree are minor, but really violating trust by having a sexual relationship with someone else.
